The site prep phase of this project ended up taking months longer than expected, due to the unexpected exposure of a HUGE boulder under the ground!
These kinds of things can happen when building in certain areas, and all that can be done is to get rid of it, little by little. Dynamite isn’t an option in most communities! This boulder was eliminated by core drilling, pouring a chemical into the hole to expand it which made the boulder crack, and jack-hammering it away….over and over again.
Thankfully, the boulder is now gone, footings and retaining walls are well underway, and we are back on track!
