The weather was cooperating and it was a great day to be drilling the piers.
You can see the details of the rebar cages and the HDPE geothermal tubing coming out of the cages, protected by the flexible insulation.

You can see the hole has been drilled to depth and is ready for the rebar cage to be lowered into the hole. Note the water at the bottom of the hole.

Cage to full height, raised to clear west wall of house.
When the cage is over the wall, it must be guided into the hole.
Cage is almost in position (6 ft to go).
Rebar cage is now positioned in the hole (just the HDPE tubing is visible).
After the holes were completed, the pumper truck folded its boom and prepared to leave.
Of course, after the pumper truck and everyone else left the site, the ‘real’ inspectors arrived! Jo-Anne, her mother, Dode, and Wendy Watkins came to the site and reviewed the progress.
Bryan skates through the inspection (and is quite pleased with his performance).
