Today they added two additional crossbeams for the shoring and started taking out the footing and excavating for the new and improved footing. It will take a couple of days because the bedrock happens to be very hard and close to the surface at this location - but this is also good news for us. Monday morning the Soils Engineer will come and inspect the excavations and if they sign off on everything the crew will begin laying out the steel.

needed to set up an elevated ramp to get
the demolished footing and excavated
earth out of the way...

soil onto the pile...
|They were adding extra supports to it|
even as they were using it!
