    Started a water service today. Had to digg down to the main. They said it was only 4.5ft in the ground turned out to be 7. , didn't bring a trench box but lucky the ground is hard good virgin clay. Got the directional bore machine coming in the mooring to bore the service under the street

    Yeah the city Was gonna do it themselfs but the guy said we did such a move job on the lastone he wanted us to just do it. Its possibly the best thing because the city is ruff on things lol. They dug up the gas man ,a week ago a street over trying to find the sewer manhole lid that was silted over because They didn't have enough sense to stop after a 1ft

    Dug a new house really bad ground caving in every where. 9.5ft cut with 3ft bench. Not happy with the way it looks but will do for such bad ground

    Took down this Barn on Friday. my best friend bought this old farm insurance company wouldn't cover the house till the barn was down. Saved some of it like beams and the walls but it was pretty dilapidated. Made from pine mostly over a 100 years old. Borrowed my friend 300 to take it down. I didn't hey many pics only ones i have are the ones I've taken off some peoples Facebook.
