    What exactly are they doing there? Just puting a foundation under the existing house and adding on or moving it out of there. Also, did you dig it with the skids in the pic?

    What'd you dig it with, and is that soil as sandy as it looks?

    a 30 x 36 addition to a 20 x 26 house. Wouldn't it just be cheaper to start over?

    it was was dug with a excavator,and yas that is pretty much beach sand [i cant begin to tell you how frustrating it is to have it graded just right and then have 4 feet cave in],and site s it is not cheaper were i live to start over,keeping the existing structure saves alot of permitting ,also this house is pretty old ,guys a friend and builder so i was really just helping him,its been in his family for along can see the section we demolished ,and i know its hard to see but this is is a 10 deep cellar.nothing special just thought you guys would like it.

    I would have been really nervous walking the excavator out of that hole.
