6718 Residence – Surprise!

First signs of trouble… Early in excavation the contractor found something odd.

What is a concrete wall doing buried in the back yard? Turns out to be part of what we eventually discovered is an almost completely intact swimming pool. A little research found an permit to completely remove the pool had been pulled more than 7 years ago. Looks like it wasn’t removed.

The solution required soil testing, re-engineering and eventually filling the pool with about 20 cubic yards of concrete. Effectively creating a giant spread footing to support the screen porch.

Moving that much concrete is a big operation and required some big machines. Problem solved. Onward!
