Lake Crowley Project

I'll pop some pics in here from time to time showing how its all coming along.

Excavation started Monday, should be dug, back filled & compacted by the end of the week.




I didn't take the pics, they came to me in an Email from the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board. It seems that a "concerned citizen" was worried about an apparent lack of sediment and erosion control devices protecting the stream, so they called the water board, who just happened to have someone from their Tahoe office in the area. We are ok though, that straw waddle stuff is all that's required. I guess they just sent the email to let us know we're being watched

Looks like "Erosion Control" was just one more roadblock that a "concerned citizen" thought he could throw into the mix.

As though your builder didn't already have enough of them!

Glad it was cheaply short-circuited!

You know how it is...once you've got your house in the wonderland, you do everything you can to keep anyone else from getting one.

I loathe those basterds.

Is that straw waddle at the rear of the truck?

Was it on-site already?

That had to make everybody happy!

Busy-bodies. Ya' gotta' loathe 'em!

Yes it is Marv, and the excavation contractor brought it and laid it out himself.


Absolutely, Bill Though a lot of garage space will get used up with battery storage, there's still going to be quite a bit of playroom.

A little hand clean-up with a shovel and you should be good-to-go. Going to pump it?

What kind of compaction percentages did you get? Looks like clay/sand.

Also looks like neighbors aren't all that far off.

Those houses are over on the West side of 395. Not that far away, but far enough

The geo tech signed off on the compaction. I don't know the exact number. That soil you're looking at is pit run mixed with native.

Not sure yet if I'm gonna use a line pump or a boom pump, but I'm definitely pumping it.

How many yards are there to pump?

How far outside of the buildings did you have to over-ex?

Same specs for garage and house?

The house footing alone is a little over 21 yards. I don't have a number for everything yet, I'll measure it all out after it's formed. Gonna be a lot...especially @ $120 per yd
