There is a new home going into our park. I shot some footage of them getting the holes for the frost line footers in. Much easier than digging, and a lot safer than an auger. I thought I would share it here as it is a pretty interesting process.

In other news, I have the partial skirting job done. Enough to get the deck/landing started in front of the patio door. I am taking video of that too and will post it on my You Tube channel when I get around to editing again.

I wish there was a way to embed the video in the forum, but the link will take you to the video on my You Tube channel.

.That doesn't look deep enough for below frost line, around here it 36".
That is a variation of vacuum excavating. I have never seen a pressure washer used before, But it seems to work.

They are about 4'+ deep. Depth perception gets wacky with video, particularly when using a bit of zoom.
