Well, digging started:
And after 10 day and 18 truckloads of dirt, excavation is finally done!
Wow, I never imagined there would be so much dirt! Once it was all dug out I could see it is going to be so much bigger that I imagined. I can’t wait. Tomorrow the foundation is getting formed with wood and re-bar (I have no idea how it’s spelled!) is going in.
