Just as the pad was built. There was a very large pecan tree right in the middle of the pad that I was very sad to see go.
The piers being dug
The tool to create the 'bell bottoms' of the pier.
Adding lime to my very wet ground before putting on plastic. Sorry for the haze, it was 95+ outside and the camera came from inside where it was 72.
The beam and cubes for the 2-post lift that will be installed.
Each spot is a 24" cube with a 10' pier beneath. It should support my 2-post lift nicely.
The base for the vault. Beams are 30" deep with 10' piers on two corners and 12" of concrete across.
Soo glad I wasn't the one raking concrete. Not a job for sissies.
