Wordless Wednesday: Covered Porch Construction Edition

Backhoe in the backyard
Very cool!
Guys getting ready to cut the conrete
Through the kitchen window
An 8 foot trench
Looks like we live on the edge of a cliff
Overnight cave-in.  Workers had to dig it out by hand
Through the kitchen window, again
2 Concrete tucks and a pumper truck
Massimo holding the hose in place
14 yards of concrete. 


  1. so you poured concrete 8 feet deep and 1.5-2 feet thick? why?

  2. We're building an elevated porch with a double gabled roof. They had to dig deeper than expected to hit stable soil, so that is why.
