Day 15: Still Excavating the Basement


We're still digging a deeper hole. I thought we'd have the basement excavated at this point, but we're still working on it. The foundation subcontractor wasn't able to start today due to some other jobs going long, and it looks like he won't be there until Friday. That said, I'm not too concerned about not having the basement fully excavated. The hole is now fully dug and level, with just the last 6 inches or so to go, which will be done the day before the foundation starts. Seems like something I said that week. I've decided to not be too frustrated with delays that I can't control. I'll just go with the flow and enjoy the process. Being late allowed the kids to play in the hole a bit today, doing some mountain climbing.

Here's a shot of the foundation excavation from across the way. Steve is standing in the lower left corner. It's now level on the floor of the basement, with just some minor cleanout left to do.

Here's a shot of the time lapse camera that I have set up to track our progress. It's set to take a picture every 15 minutes.

 Standing on top of the foundation hole and looking down, it doesn't seem as big when using the panoramic setting on my camera.

After we looked at the hole, we headed back to visit with Grandma and Grandpa. Will flew his Spiderman kite fore a few minutes and the kids played with the kids.
