Progress photos

Here are some pictures of our progress to date.  These pictures span from mid May to mid June.  Lots of progress in just one, short month!
Empty lot, approx 8,000 sq ft

First dig!
More digging
The guy in the orange shirt is standing in our basement
The "step" is the crawlspace, adjacent to partial basement that sits under the front half of the house
Clearly we have a water problem.  At this point we consulted a soil/geotechnical engineer to make some suggestions on how to help with drainage to prevent flooding.  
14 inch sump pump conduit, which will have 2 pumps and back up generator power

Good thing they didn't hit the power lines
