Here's how it looks after excavation and partial demo. It took one guy 4 hours to do the job. He was damn good. The building inspector will be out between 9 am and 10 am today to sign off on the excavation then Thursday or Friday they will start the foundation. The soil is great they said. It's good packing material so they will reuse it all which should save around $600 in fill. The old foundation stayed in place with no complications.
