During our pre-construction meeting with Doug, he said there'd be plenty of dirt to even out the backyard. We had some doubts that there would be enough dirt, but looking at the pile just from the driveway, shows that it should be good.
He laid down sandstone for the construction driveway. It will get packed down tightly during the construction, so it'll be a good base for the concrete when the time comes.
They said it would take 2 days to dig out the basement and the next day they'd have the footers poured. The block will be delivered by the end of the week.
I will spare you another Carlton gif, instead, here are some actual pictures of progress.
