Week 4 Ooh yeah footings

30 01 2015

Apparently, 100 tonnes of soil was removed for the footings… that’s a lot…I never realised how much of an impact on the land footings have. But then, we also have 800mm footings to compensate for the reactive clay soil, rather than a standard 600mm or so.

Oh, and they found a big lump of rock of old house footings… did that demolition company not do their job properly…?
