I hadn't been out to "the hole" for a while so John and I ran out there to take a look. There were lots of changes.
The hole had been backfilled (the dirt was filled in around the basement walls).
The road into the hole had been filled in with topsoil so it will grow grass.
The garage had been dug out so the footers can be poured. It's a HUGE garage... big enough to fit the suburban, a full-sized pickup and probably a small apartment complex. It's seriously HUGE.
They electricians had been there, too. They put in a new electric pole and a meter.
