The pictures below are of the first week's work. Lord willing, there will be a weekly update (at the least) with photos showing the results of a week of work.
Before the ruckus begins
Meet (from L to R) Mr. Bill Jordan (contractor), Gwen, Moses, and Hosea
Before the end of day 1, Gwen and Mr. Bill brought a load of clay.
Day 2 began with an extra large dump truck and a smaller dump truck full of red clay coming up the driveway. By the end of the day, there had been 4 total loads of the smaller dump truck and 1 of the large truck.
Papa's little tractor came in handy :)
Enjoying the show
The dirt foundation needed one final touch- the tampering! So Mr. Bill brought his nifty "little" gas powered tamping tool over and finished packing the dirt. A couple of us were even permitted to give it a go ourselves.
Due to the concrete finisher not being available until Monday, this ends the work week.
