I got all my grade stakes out and marked. I'm really pleased with how everything is turning out so far. The existing grade was almost exactly where it needed to be, so it was just a matter of my elevation.
Here are some pics from late day. My first load of CA-6 is coming in the morning. Somewhere around 12 tons. Originally I estimated 32 tons, but, my trench is a little wider and deeper than I originally estimated for. I might be closer to 42 when it's all said and done.
I love the sunsets and the fall colors together. One of the reasons I love my Profession.
The pile of rubble from the front steps. I broke all that up with a Jack Hammer.
Center Island. It has been a thorn in my side. It held a lot of water, and might be dry enough tomorrow to grade a little more and pack it.
