Done with the unexpected...hopefully

Well, after a wonderful week in Spain, I came back to find out that there were more basement foundation walls than expected. As of yesterday (Wednesday), we've removed all that needs to be removed. What we did was cut down the walls to a foot below subgrade (subgrade = the bottom of everything new that is being put in).

Now that all of that is done, the contractor is going to continue with storm sewer removal and relocating the existing fire hydrant. Storm sewer installation will start soon and once that is complete, site grading will begin.
