We're in the process of getting designs and bids. Pretty much have narrowed it down to 2 builders.
Problem is we have a pinch point on either side of the house of right about 6 ft. One neighbor is selling so I doubt very seriously they would let us take down the fence and trample their yard.
The other neighbor lives out of the country and is never home. We see them about once a year for just a short amount of time.
So, taking down either fence is not likely to happen anytime soon.
One builder quoted us a small equipment dig. Two day machine charge. Something like a mini bobcat. But I don't know model. He's confident it will fit. And this company has been around a long time with an exceptional reputation.
Does anyone have experience with a small equipment / narrow access dig? How long did it take? Watching videos it appears a dig can be done fairly quickly but moving the dirt out might be very time consuming.
Any other thoughts or gotchas to look out for?
Oh, I'm in The Woodlands, TX. Just north of Houston, if that matters.
