Not much progress but it’s something. Anyone know why the holdup?

I think the excavator is just there for show. The actual digging is done by a couple of guys with garden trowels late at night.

The W men come out from the shed with the white door above the right chain link. They take pride in their work and won’t accept compensation. At the end of their shift the last worker disconnects a new control valve on the excavator. Day crew can’t figure it out. Some workers believe it’s the Welburns fridge ghost exacting it’s revenge.

That hole on the left is like at least 3 or 4 inches deeper.

More photos as of this morning. Making sure the neighbours backyard doesn’t go for a slip and slide like we saw at Haven. Also looks like they found some old bottles.

They still seem to be mostly using a teaspoon for the excavation here.

A Tower crane was erected on this site last weekend.

Great, thank you. Is that yellow crane at HGV still there, or was the photo from a few days ago?

Know it all.
