Foundation contractors mark the boundary of the excavation.
Dale Everhart controls the backhoe while John King removes soil from the existing foundation wall (Everhart and King Brothers, Concrete Specialists).
I rent an electric jack hammer to punch a hole in the wall and slab of the existing basement. The idea is to connect the perforated drain pipe that will be placed along the perimeter of the new foundation to an existing clay pipe below the slab of the existing basement that has been connected to a sump pump.
