My basement

After two days of digging and getting ready, the easy work began today.

The ‘grunt crew,’ as I heard them called today, didn’t show up.  Instead, the skilled crew came in.  They got right to work using a quiet hydraulic pump to press 12-inch sections of piering into the ground.

When I came home from work, I could tell that a couple of the cracks had closed up, and then in looking at the basement I could see how it happened.

I’m told the grunt crew comes back tomorrow to put all the dirt back and seal up the basement floor.  This whole process should be over by Friday, altho the back porch awaits its own fixes on Thursday.
