    Day 3: Setting the Sonotubes

    Day 3 began with finishing our footing holes with the use of the auger, and prepping the sonotubes to be placed. The holes are drilled to be 2’ wide by 6’ deep with a total of 14 holes. Minimal items (including Atsushi’s phone) were dropped in the holes.

    Once the digging was finished, we began inserting the tubes and tamping the soil flat. Each tube was then filled with 4” of gravel and tamped once more.


    With all the tubes placed it was time to clear the site, which meant shoveling and removing all the dirt displaced by the auger….. It was quite the workout.
