I did'nt do anything yesterday. Well actually I did. I was thinking. lol. My life story, but the thinking part is done for now. I got a bit a of late start today as it was raining pretty good when I woke up this morning (monday morning) . Things were sticky out there at first this afternoon, but it did'nt take long and I was back in action. I got alot of the basement dug, but it is quite time consuming and I imagine it is going to get even more time consuming as I get close to grade. This basement is probably the most precise thing I have ever had to do with my backhoe. The footings are supposed to sit on undisturbed soil, and if I go too deep, it will add up on the cost of concrete rather quickly. I guess. Most real good basement diggers usually get it all to within 1/4 of an inch. lol. If I get it to within 1/4 of a foot, I will be laughing. I think I am going to have to weld a plate along the teeth of my digging bucket to try and be like those pros and get a smoother finish. Well anyway, the main thing is, I'm digging. I am really enjoying it also, doing my own project, I can do it all at my own pace and not worry about some jack ass telling me what to do all the time.
