Dig dig dig dig

3 Jul

While we wait for the weather to improve this AM & set up our pop up tent, here’s what we were up to yesterday!

We were very fortunate to have Chris here to help us because I am way too short to handle this thing!! Plus his math skills utilized in measuring out the hole spacings came in quite handy too!

We rented the 2-man auger to dig ten 3′ holes to fill with sono tubes, which will then be filled with cement to form the footings for our deck. There were a few delays along the way digging out the holes, (including an hour & a half where the whole thing was stuck in the ground – fortunately brotherly ingenuity prevailed over that seemingly desperate situation), but all in all this crazy piece of equipment worked great at what it was supposed to do!
