Now that a few days have passed and we have successfully prepared the work site by removing all debris, fencing, shrubs, trees and trash, were on to the technical stuff – soil engineering!
Before a new foundation is laid, you want to make sure it’s going to stay in it’s place, and it’s the job of the soil engineer to tell you if that is going to happen or not. Each house or addition is different, they are all built of materials that have particular weights, and depending on those combined weights you might have too much or not enough hard soil to support the structure.

In the case of our homes, we need a soil compaction of 1500psf. Our soil engineer anecdotally told us that we would definetly achieve at least that amount, so we are off to a good start!
