November 2017 Updates
See pictures below of work that is in process on the site.
Approximately 250 truckloads of dirt were removed from the site to make room for our future garage. At 15 cubic yards per truckload that’s a whole lot of dirt!
Potholing was performed three days in a row in the street just in front of our site. Potholing is the practice of digging a test hole to expose underground utilities to ascertain their precise horizontal and vertical location. This is extremely critical for all utilities but especially so since it was determined there is a massive fiber optic trunk line that runs directly in front of Markley Place. We definitely do not want to disturb this utility.
During the next couple of weeks, our site work will include soil nailing of the earth at our deepest cut(approximately 18 feet) near the street and installing aggregate piers around the perimeter of our build for foundation support. Soil nailing is an earth stabilization method using tension-resisting steel nails. When the process begins we will be sure to send some pictures to help explain. Aggregate Piers are a system that uses compacted aggregate stone to create stiff footings. The installation process structurally modifies the soil surrounding the footing to achieve an extremely strong and stable foundation for our building.
Well, this is all very exciting! We will keep you posted! Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!
