Fall Farnsworth Trip


We went to the Farnsworth House site to survey and look into the ground conditions in preparation for putting in the foundation. We surveyed the building perimeter to get exact measurements of the amount of soil that would be required to dig up for each site to put in our foundation. We also dug a four foot hole to figure out the soil type and get a better understanding of how many rocks and other things would be in the soil, that we would have to move out, in order to do the foundation. We had a barbecue for lunch, and showed off the Farnsworth house to one of our studio members who had not gone before.
