Digging Frost Footings

This far North in Minnesota it is recommended that you place your footings at a depth of 60" to stay below the frost line. Since the house will have a 6' high berm around three sides we only had to dig the front and 13' of each side to frost depth.
 The beggining of the day.

 The bucket is 3 feet wide.

Caleb in the trench (note the water seeping out at about the 48" deep line. This seems to never stop)

Caleb getting the ground water to run to the sump hole that we dig so that we could pump it out.

Ready to start building forms.
