Construction Process

Who wants a fresh cold glass of Pacific Bin mountain?! It's official the well is drilled and it's only down 165 feet. (Which is great because it costs $62 per every foot). The reason the water is so musty is because of all the sand/rock at the bottom got stirred up while drilling. Next day the sand screen gets installed which will make the water nice and clear. Then next week the pump goes in.
3 feet under the driveway there are now conduits where the utility company will run power and Comcast will run data.
Footings get poured and the knee walls start to get framed.
JB Concrete does all of concrete work.
The owner refused to pay $4k for a crane to set containers so they made it happen with a bobcat and mini excavator! The total rental cost for the bobcat and excavator was $1k. Trying to save that money where they can so they can get some fancy furniture inside the bin.
Two neighborhood pups.
