New Construction Next Door

23 12 2013

Earlier this year the house next door was sold (July 2013). Nothing happened for several months, but then we received a letter from the city about a permit being filed for new construction. Well now the project has started, so I thought I would share the images to document the project.

The city is requiring the developer to remove and replace a minimum of 5 feet of soil right up to the property line on both sides. Apparently there had been a stream running through the lot before the homes were built in the area. The silt is too soft and there is no clay to hold the soil together for a solid foundation.





Putting in the new soil… it’s making our windows rattle and the house shake like a minor earthquake!!!
