Trench digging completed

The past few days, I have been working long hours to dig the foundation trench for my eventual cob house. Today, it is complete, and ready to be filled with gravel. I am pretty psyched about that. The digging took four days with the help of Jeff, who will be work exchanging with me for a few weeks. The trench is approximately 18″ deep, and 18″ wide. It wasn’t nearly as difficult as I thought it would be. (That’s partly because I only dug 18″, not the 24″ or 32″ I was originally planning.)

As soon as I have a free minute, I will have to post some photos. Tomorrow, I will have the help of the first group of Dancing Rabbit visitors to fill in the trench with gravel. Very happy about that.  Human power!
