Day 60: Drying Out


This past week we've had a lot of rain, enough to create some good size puddles in our basement excavation. Tonight I picked up a sump pump and decided to help speed up the drying time. I hooked up the hose and ran it along the foundation and out daylight.

We had a little earth come off our excavation and onto our footings. We'll need to get it cleaned off before waterproofing and installing drain tile.

I had some good help from the kids. We were all wearing muck boots, but the kids eventually ditched theirs in favor of bare feet (once out of the construction area). I also had some good help from my dad, who stopped by for the evening on his way to Branson. It was great to have him there.
