A LOT of dirt was moved around the property over a period of three days, in preparation for an open basement / parking area. Due to the limited size of the property we decided to be as efficient as possible with vehicle parking, and even though it costs more to both dig into the ground and then raise the building up to accommodate the higher base level of the living space — it will prove to be worth it.
After the excavator work was finished we were hoping that the hole digging crew for the foundation would return the next day, but unfortunately the timing was such that the land was quiet for two entire days. The resident building crew returned to their village for a prayer week and will be returning tomorrow. They will probably be surprised that the place looks a bit like a meteor hit it.
