Let the Digging Begin

We are adding a pool and tomorrow is the first day of excavation. The design process was fun once we picked the right contractor. We had everything living removed from the yard except for our orange tree and the dog and cat. The hot tub was sold and the swingset was demolished and hauled away (good thing we made that choice to as there was lots of rot in the support beams just under the surface). The concrete patio that was installed along with our addition in 2003 is also coming out. When it is all said and done the only thing original in our backyard will be our orange tree and the side fences. The rear fence will most likely be replaced during this project. Here is the before picture of the yard. I will try to post photos after siginificant milestones or changes occur.
