The Borels have hired Phil Howard of P. Howard Construction to build their new home.

Here you are standing in what use to be the driveway to the old home looking towards the rear of the lot. After the home was destroyed in the Freeway Complex Fires last fall, the owners hired Tight Quarters, Inc. to demolished what remained of the home  including the foundation and footings.

The city of Yorba Linda issues a grading permit first. The contractor may need to re-compact the soil based upon the recommendations from the soils engineer and his soils report. For the Borels project EGA Consultants required a re-compaction of the area of construction at a depth of three below the existing surface. Once the site has been recompacted and inspected, the contractor is then able to go down and pull the building permits before digging out the footings for the new foundation.
