The Pit at Fifth and Division

The construction project at Fifth and Division is getting serious. It’s a tiny little plot of land, but this excavator has been hard at work for a couple of weeks digging a new hole to China.

I guess this is going to be a house with a full basement, because they’ve gone down easily fifteen feet here. It looks like they’ve finally hit bottom; I’ve been watching them for a couple of weeks, and as the hole gets deeper the piles around the edge get higher. The drawbacks of working in such a cramped space, I guess. I don’t envy the operator for having to drive around in there and try to climb out of that hole.
