It was a short day on the shop project. I had a lawn mower that needed repair and a trip to town for parts so there wasn't much time for work on the project. I did finish grading the water entrance pit. This will amount to a small crawl space where the water enters the shop. I plan a 4 foot square pressure treated enclosure that is 3 foot high. I used the laser level shown above to establish the height of the top of the enclosure so I knew how deep to dig. Greg had left me a 2 foot trench area to start so the digging went fast. I also dug a sump hole and installed 16 inch clay tile on a bed of river rock.
