    Tomorrow I will try to move it. If that doesn't work, I may dig deeper and roll it in.

    Up here, that's really not that big of a rock. I'll post a picture of one tomorrow with my tractor beside it.

    Measure it to weight it.
    Rock averages 150-160 lbs per cubic foot.

    I'd love a free rock. The only problem is they wont let me take it on the ferry.

    just dig the hole deeper , then shift the rock into it. consider it aggregate for the cement pad you're going to pour...


    besides , look at the size of it so far , imagine how big it will grow to in the future.

    You can't just leave it alone?
    Or dig a deeper hole next to where you found it to push it into?

    Do you have any friends who are sculptors?

    That's a big one.

    I think I would have moved the garage over if possible, or plan on leaving it if it will be below the concrete pad. I don't know what sort of foundation you are planning, but to disturb the dirt deeper than necessary is a mistake, even if you are having fun with the rock.
