The excavation for the footings commenced on Monday, and lo and behold those trees (or at least the the remaining stumps/roots) just happened to be right where the footings were planned to go. Up until this week those trees were but a distant memory. A whole day was wasted removing this dead wood from the ground - what should have been a strips of concrete footings now resembles a hole for a swimming pool.
