Finally broke ground yesterday! We ran into a snag (second picture) so they are bringing the rock breaker today if the weather holds out for me.
Very excited to finally have the start of a hole in my back yard!
The excavation is the only part I contracted out. The guy who did my excavation for my house last year is doing it. He is very expensive, but he is very good. He digs for the local pool company and does 10-20 per year so I feel good that he will dig it right.
NOT what you want to see sitting in the deep end!
