Home Is Where the Hole Is

Well, we've cleared away the old house to make room for the new, but it's not as simple as just jumping right into framing. The next step is making sure that the area is excavated properly for the new house. Once again, we brought in the big machinery to do the heavy lifting for us.

Take a peek at our latest video that features our General Manager, Tom Firth, giving some tips about things to keep in mind when excavating in a residential area.

As mentioned in the video, it's important to always keep an eye on the big picture. The heavy machinery going into and out of the site will likely chew up the sidewalk to the point where it will have to be replaced. We've made sure that equipment only enters and exits in one place - the same place that we'd have to redo anyway when we put in the new driveway. Just one more helpful hint!
