Backyard Office: Ground Breaking

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under Backyard Office

This was a big day.  No turning back now.  I took a deep breath and was finally able to relax once the construction crew began to break ground in our back yard.  We had to cut down a bunch of bushes and small trees, which we were a little sad about, but we will just have to plant new ones once the office is complete.

This process took a couple of extra days because our soil was too soft.  They had to dig deeper than usual, and fill the hole in with gravel before pouring the foundation.

Is that enough foundation to support the keg?

Thanks so much for documenting this! I’m a sucker for following projects. The photos will be helpful someday as a reference too.
