Alright Well after 5 months of planning we have finally started. My father-in-law and I came across a great deal on a 1978 Caterpillar 941b Trackloader. We Started to dig the basement out with this machine and then called in some help to finish the dig. The first real problem for this build turned out to be the lack of slope we had to work with. I love to walk into a house level, or at least close to level. Unfortunately this house is going to stick up higher than I wanted, do to where the lateral lines will have to be for the septic system. I will make the best of it with backfill though. The next few days will be setting the foundation forms and getting it inspected.
