While waiting for Metricon to do the soil test and get through the paper work we had the excavator/landscaper do the retainer wall in our future back yard. It was a job we had planned to do after the house was built, but the landscaper suggested to do it now as It would be difficult to get the machines in the back yard once the house is up. I think it looks great. I am getting excited again to see the progress. Metricon had a date to start on October 22nd. I am hoping for an earlier start....always good to be optimistic.
