Wow! It's Almost the Whole Hole!

These photos were taken around 11:30 A.M. today.


This photo was taken about the same time, but from the dining room window (in the back of the house, that's second floor).

 4:26 P.M.


The workers are gone, and these two photos below were taken at nearly 6:00 P.M.


 They'll return tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. to finish readying for and installing a Peat System...

Pretty significant work and a good-sized hole, wouldn't you say??

Doesn't the sounds of the machinery drive you insane. Or did you leave for a while today? I'm not sure what a Peat System is? I will have to Google it.

Hi, Muffy. It wasn't terribly noisy...but then, I really was "out" a lot today. :-)

" holey mess", Know it is needed but wow!I have never heard of the peat part.

I'd say! Love how fast tractors can speed up yard work.

You wouldn't want to lean too far out of the shed window right now.

Did they scrape the top soil first, and set it aside so you can put it back on top, or is that too much fuss when you're excavating?

Northern, They did scrape aside topsoil, but there was not much to spread around...
