    That pile of dirt is about 4 ft tall. It started raining, so we stopped for the day. Once it slows I'll get some more pics

    I removed a hillside for my install. I thought, there won't be too much dirt. But the truth is, once you expose it to air, it expands!

    My daughters are mad at me for the lake. Lol We aren't done digging it out, it started raining and the bobcat was having problems in the mud. Hopfully it dries out quickly

    Not sure where you're located, but the rain has been unseasonably abundant here. We finished our install (partial bury of doughboy) about 5 weeks ago, and used the extra dirt to level out the yard. Our plan was to immediately tamp it down and get the deck built. Instead, we just have a giant mud pit surrounding the pool with standing water everywhere.

    Good luck on your build, can't wait to see how it turns out. Thanks for the pics!

    Still a lot of water it's mud and a one inch of standing water in spots. Hopefully it evaporates tomorrow
