As you will have seen from yesterday’s post and images the footing digging was halted. The builders didn’t want to go any further down in case the depth caused the sides of the footing to crumble inwards. It was found that the back part of the house is on good soil and the front part is on made up ground. Today at 13:00 Andrew is meeting the engineer and someone from NHBC who will confirm if we need to pile or if we can simply have very deep filled footings.

Update 15:30
The soil is not good but we can build on a raft, more info, if interested. So the trench that’s already been dug needs filling back in, the ground needs scraping again and the house layout needs done. The raft with steel reinforcements can then be completed.

Some images of today’s progress. To see some more please visit the ‘ground works gallery‘.
