Shop's already finished and filled.  This is the 3 br house.

Here's a pix of the shop and the tractor I used to dig the basement.  Pix of basement walls was shot from in front of shop, about where tractor is sitting.

Every time I look at the first picture in the post, the back wall of the hole looks for all the world like a shot of the Grand Canyon or Monument Valley, from an old John Ford western.   Laugh

Looking good. That was allot of digging but luckily easy digging. Here it's rock hard black clay or solid rock or a combination of the two hence basements are rare because the basement would cost more than the house to build... 

   A friend of mine in Oklahoma bought some property and it's two seperate plots. His shop is going to be built on one of them and the shop on the other. They said he can't build his shop on the other piece of property because it doesn't have a house on it. Now that's moronic...
