Had a go figuring out where the ground would be using some bricks, level and a 2.4m timber. The stack of bricks on the bottom right represents the bottom of the suspended floor at the front, 52cm. I knew it would be around that figure but seeing it in person is making me worry this office will tower over our garden.
I'm beginning to think that I should do a bit of digging. The two raised beds either side of the pathway have about 35-40cm of top soil that I really am starting to think I need to get rid of.
Anyone know much about digging? Is attempting to excavate 6x3x0.4m of top soil with hand tools possible? I'm not adverse to a bit of hard work.
