Remember I posted about finding these bent rebar rods Dave had made.
Now I know what they are for.
He drilled holes in the foundation wall then inserted the rods where the porch floor will be.
A rental delivery dropped of a gas powered hand operated compactor.
Dave compacted the backfill where the porch floor will be constructed.
Next a small, rubber-tracked digger was dropped off.
It built up the soil for the porch floor and did a bit of landscape earth shaping on the south side of the studio area.
