May 10 – After some debate, the way forward for our foundation preparation was chosen and completed this week. Many loads of “shot rock” were trucked in and compacted on our building site. An anti-infiltration fabric was then placed over that, followed by several feet of lean clay. We are now ready to begin foundation work.
The large mound of extracted fill and rock, mostly “fat clay,” will be distributed to the northeast and smoothed out, making a gentle slope behind the new building.
