A River Runs Through It November 22, 2006

Rocks in the Finished HoleNo.  Make that a puddle.  When John finished digging the hole yesterday, it was dry.  And it didn’t rain at all overnight.  But this morning we had 3 inches of water standing in the hole.  Turns out that the bottom of the hole is right at the top of the ledge, so this is groundwater running on top of the ledge right under the house.  So now, we got rocks.

3 loads of rocks were dumped and pushed into the hole today giving us a 6-8 inch rock cushion so that the water can do it’s thing and the footings can be poured on Friday.  Slight delay, but no big deal.

So it’s Thanksgiving!  And we have a hole!  Enjoy the holiday and check again over the weekend when we should have some foundation pics to post…
