The crew is hand digging holes for the 3x3x1.5 footings. They set flat spots as above, we check the exact center points for each, then they'll dig to the 1.5' depth. The footing boxes will be ready by Monday.
Some spots are more challenging than others.
We'll either incorporate the rock into the footing or if it's not too large we'll drill it out as above. All rocks and dirt removed for these footings are placed within the building site so we can keep a greenbelt around the periphery. Specimen plants, such as sage, orchids and air plants in the footing areas are transferred to areas outside the building envelope.
