May 17, 2012 -Drain Tile

Again we hit the action (otherwise known as heavy machinery) right on the nose.  This is our little man's favorite part of the process, but our "big girl" isn't so fond of the noise and insists on wearing ear protection, so we keep it handy at all times!  When we got to the site the drain pipe had been laid and the gravel was just beginning to be, well, shot into the foundation hole.  I feel like I've never really watched this part of the building process.  My involvement usually begins during the framing or finishing stages so this feels a bit new to me, but all this machinery really is pretty cool to watch!  Here are some photos of the crazy gravel shooting action:

And here's the hole all ready for foundation form work:
