We are going to be building a new home and are in process of getting our figures together for our construction loan. We would like to get bids on building the house pad but everytime I talk to someone they want to know how many tons of dirt I need but nobody is ever able to convert the figures to tons. We need a house pad that is 7000 sq. ft. and we need it built up about 30 inches. I understand that with the compaction rate we will need to add about 1/3 more onto the total amount of dirt needed. Can any of you math wizards out there help? Thanks!
