Moving along! This week is preparing for the foundation to be poured, hopefully next week. Visible progress is rewarding to see!

First trenches - these will have the concrete stem wall that holds up the floor and center of the house.

Same trenches, with leveled and compacted fill in place.

Close-up of the compacted fill - clean gravel tamped tightly for the concrete footers to rest on.

Scoping out locations for the septic system - X marks the spot!

Then digging the test pit. Good soil and less rocks means we can bury it and not have a big mound. Sweet!
