This week we started excavation work for a new single family home. The new home market has been hit very hard in recent years and it is nice to have a new home to work on. This home will feature some things that are not commonly available in a new home, such as full insulated concrete exterior walls.
The site is a challenging one! It first had to have a number of trees of varying size and type removed. The site has a significant slope which requires removing many hundred cubic yards of soil. One good thing is the site mainly has nice granular soils on it. The granular soils will allow excellent drainage around the home and provide a solid base for the foundation.
