This morning, John finished digging the last bit of dirt for the footing, making sure it’s 36″ deep and level.
It’s important to scrape off the last inch or so to virgin soil. You can’t dig too much dirt out and then add dirt; it won’t be compact enough for the weight of the concrete.
When the footing is inspected, the inspector uses a tool to ensure the dirt is untouched.
Have a SAFE Memorial Day Weekend!
