Swimming Pond: Design, Concept and Initial Excavation

Last week I rented a mini-excavator under the pretense of finally installing a septic system for the timber frame cabin. However, the first thing I did with the excavator was spend two days digging a massive 6′ deep, 20 feet by 8 foot hole for a swimming pond. Here’s a brief video about the design:
