We have been doing some work inside the ArTech school that we need to do for our remodeling work. With the heat last week it was good to be inside away from the sun.
Late last week we did manage to get the site prepared where the expansion is going to be located. This involved excavating and hauling out organic soils and bringing in granular material. The new granular material was compacted in place. We then dug perimter footings for the building foundation—-then came the rains. The trenches caved in so much from the rain that we are going to fill in the trenches, re-compact the soils, and dig new footings. This will set us back a couple of days, but it seems to be the best way to deal with the rain event.
