Such a small excavator! But Fillipe was a digging artist. The batter board in the foreground is one of eight, carefully placed and leveled to mark where the house is to be. Fillipe is digging to that target.

Still digging the second day.

A mountain appeared beside the house location. Kids and dogs loved it.

Digging complete, contractors spread peewee gravel for a 6 inch base. The white line you can see in the corner is a perimeter drain.
