The first step for the new addition is to excavate for the basement. The new basement will be the same depth as the existing basement in the current house, and we’ll eventually cut doorways from the old basement into the new basement.
But first we must excavate. Joe used his Bobcat and rented a mini-excavator from the fabulous folks at O’Leary’s Equipment to dig the hole for the new basement, and to dig the foundation for the garage expansion. Everyone seems mesmerized by these machines and I think they secretly want to take a crack at running them.
