      And so it begins..... Keep us posted, love to watch others working

      The finished product always feels so much better when you do the work yourself !!! Look forward to seeing the finished pond.
      I believe there are angels among us......

      I need a safe place to fall.

      Oh yes, it is good to be Queen.

      Well I finished the hole not as big as I would like but I started to run into roots from our 100 year old Monkey Puzzle tree in the front yard and didn't want to compromise it's root system, that and I was starting to get close to the gas line to the house It should end up about 9'X12'X5.5' and 4500gal plus filter volume

      Dwight,

      I didn't want to stop digging once I got the hang of the thing it worked really well, I did have to hand dig all the sides and bottom corners as I was not good enough with it to do that but not bad for two day's by myself, now I just need to get the energy to start on the footings, feeling old today there is no way I could have gotten the stumps that I found out by hand one is about 400lbs and I could barely move it by myself
