Today was dig day unbeknownst to us. We were on the schedule for last Thur. but our permit didn't come in until Fri. Our excavator was in Cabo this weekend but said to call as soon as I had the permit in hand and he would put us on the schedule for early this week.
At 7 this morning my oldest said, Mom, they're here. They got started right away and apparently stopped right after I left for work. They hit caliche about 3-4 ft. down that they couldn't break through w/ the track ho. The owner gets back from Cabo tomorrow and will come check it out. He'll bring the hammer on Wed. and finish the dig.
Here's a pic of our design:
and the before pic of the yard:
I'll post a pic tomorrow of the dig up to this point.
