DAY 1, Thursday July 24th

Our concrete man is Ivan Meyer. His helpers are family members and friends. Ivan comes highly-recommended by some of our other subcontractors, and he has done two other foundations in our subdivision.


Ivan and Alex work on moving the garage pins a bit north and east
while the excavator's helper gets his laser set up.

The laser is used along with a calibrated post to get the trenches dug to a consistent depth (18 inches for the garage and 22 inches for the house). The home to the right (south) belongs to Steven, my neighbor. He had been storing his trailers (seen in the back of the photo) on our lot until last week.
