Excavation 2007

More pictures of the excavation on Flickr.
We finally had the nerve and courage to get a new drainage system placed around our house. One of the biggest reasons for putting it off for all these years was finances. No, we did not strike it rich and our financial situation is still the same. We ended up getting a loan, so now, we owe more!

Due to the inedequate drainage around our house, we would have a wet floor, wet walls, and sometimes a puddle in our basement. We were very concerned about the condition of the foundation and knew that we would have a bigger problem to deal with if we didn't get it fixed. The new drainage system will fix our water problems. It will also increase the value of the house and we'll finally be able to do some renovation in the basement.
