Custom Home Foundation Excavation in the Mountains

A large and very complex dig with over 2500 cubic yards of excavation! This build was on an undeveloped lot. It required building a construction road and clearing the building site of hundreds of large trees. The build-site was on a heavily-sloped mountain, meaning the back side of the excavation was nearly 20-feet deep!

High-End Road Construction & Building Pad

A very complicated road build. The engineers said we “couldn’t build the road with less than a 10% grade”. Not only did we come in at 9.8%, but we also managed to divert the route around several large trees, while maintaining a beautiful forest-feel!
