    Howdy guys…after my last encounter with an addition with my previous employer I was left a little jaded.
    I’m now with a new company and have been placed on another addition.
    This one seems to be going well so far and much like the previous one, I’m excited about it.
    This time things seem to be going well. The dig went a bit slow because we had a tiny little excavator due to poor access; and my new employers seem to be very receptive to any requests and are quick to give answers.
    I’m not 100% sure what our scope of work covers but I’ve heard that we will be doing the majority of the work in-house.
    In addition to the….addition…we’ll be doing a pretty decent gut and reno inside the house as well.
    So I’m in a hurry to get the addition dried in so we can beat the cold weather.
    Here’s a link to the pics I’ve got so far (plans, excavation)
    As of yesterday we have the footings poured and stripped, and the plates are fastened down ready for form panels first thing Monday morning.

    That tiny excavator is doing a lot of work.
    I attached a couple of your pics to make them easier to see.

    Thanks @monman1 !
    I hope so too, as the last one wasn’t up to my expectations.

    The footprint for the addition is 16′-6″x 18′-6″.
    It took that machine close to 13 hours to dig it all out and move the spoils around.

    What left you feeling Jaded with the last employer?

    We deal with tight access issues all the time in the valley. Those small escavators sure do have a place in the hole making department.

    The last place I was at was into cutting corners, or just plain doing things wrong. Any input I had was promptly dismissed.

    Thanks everyone for the comments so far.
    I have to go and check the hoarding today to ensure the ground isn’t frozen, and we’ll get some form panels up tomorrow.

    You were smart to move on .Learning to be a hack will not get you anywhere in the long run except a bad name .

    Yeah it takes real courage to forge your own destiny and not someone else’s. Your professionalism will shine through to the right people eventually. Looking forward to seeing more pics as the project progresses.

    Looks like a nice project. I like seeing the plans, so much different than we do it out here with no frost.
