Shovel and Wheelbarrow

We began Phase IV of my summer project this morning, excavating dirt.  We got the dirt out of half the patio expansion, and tomorrow we load it with clean sand, then hopefully on Wednesday we install pavers.  Three teenaged boys, three shovels, a wheelbarrow and an old man.  It's amazing how fast that hole progressed.  That hole is 12 x 12, and I estimate that we moved over  two cubic yards of dirt today.

If this part of the project goes according to plan, we'll begin the next phase next Monday, which is to install pavers on the other half of the expansion.  Rinse, later, repeat.
