Excavation

Excavation is well underway.  After 5 long days of work there has been a lot of progress!  The hole is nearly 10 feet deep but doesn’t quite cover the extent of the basement.  We’re probably 2/3rds of the way there.

Although we are not done excavating, because the caissons are now exposed, we were able to get the City to inspect and close out the shoring permit and while they were at it they closed out demolition.  Both were approved which meant on Friday we got our official building permit!  7-months to the day from when we made our first submission to the City.

Up next is finishing site excavation and prepping for foundation footings.  Once the footings are poured the formwork can be built so that the concrete walls for the basement can be poured.
