We asked ahead of time and due to the sheer amount of limestone in this area, they don't charge extra. It's built into the dig cost. They only charge extra if they run into something truly unusual, like a buried car or storage tank or something that doesn't belong there.

Yesterday marked day 6 of this never-ending dig. They showed up today again, but unfortunately I sent them away. The HOA expressly forbids working on Sunday and I've already been on their bad side a few too many times.

After removing all that rock, yesterday they brought in smaller rock, aka gravel, and placed that around. I think they still have work to do on the spa since that is where they were when I kicked them out this morning.

They removed the digging machines today, so I'm hoping we are nearly done with this dig.

They finished up the rebar on Sunday. Plumbers came back out today to continue with their work. They did a lot of things, very little of it do I know anything about. But pipes were installed.

Looks like they still have more to do, so I expect they will be back tomorrow

I think they are all done. They packed up their tools when they left. Nothing looks out of place to me, but I'm pretty ignorant of pool plumbing.
