    Day Two: Auger

    Today we drilled our foundations!



    This year’s DBB house sits on top of 14 concrete piers. Located in the Aneth Chapter on the Navajo reservation, our site is located on a flood plain near the San Juan River. We used a 24” auger to drill 6’ in the ground.

    Due to caving and hitting river rock, we poured water to stabilize caving sand as well as soften the river rock bed.
