Digging up the dirt!

Our builders have been busy taking lots of earth out of the floor of the pump room and the footings for our new kitchen.  It is interesting to see the layers of strata, topsoil on top and clay underneath.

After digging down this far they had more to dig out for the foundations of the new kitchen.  They have been taking the spoil away and laying it down as a path in our woods for us.

Today they have been laying down the pipes for drainage.

Tomorrow they will be laying down the concrete for the footings in the gaps.

Today we had 8 tons of ballast delivered along with quite a few bags of cement for them to mix the concrete.

In the meantime we just go about our normal jobs whilst watching what is going on outside all day.
