Geotech Test Pits Dug
While checking in on the Oakley Home 2.0 site this weekend, I noticed that several test pits had been dug by the engineers I hired to produce the Geotech report for the property, and a photo from that visit is posted below. The locations of the pits are based off of the site footprint of the previous home and the proposed footprint of the new home. Images illustrating those site footprints are also shown below and were sent to the engineers in advance of the test pits being dug to help guide them with their study. The next step for the Geotechnical Engineers is to compile their observations and measurements into a report and provide recommendations for how to go about excavating and designing the foundation system of the new house to deal with the soil conditions observed. Stay tuned for another blog post that will dive deeper into that Geotechnical Report when it becomes available.
