Murphy Excavating has been tasked with doing the excavating for many, many homes throughout Central New York and the Adirondacks over our years in business. These projects have come out beautifully, and were completed both on time and on budget. However, we know how personal and private a home is. It’s your sanctuary and your safe haven. For this reason, we choose not to post pictures of the properties we’ve worked on here. However, to give you an idea of the scope of our work, some of the developments in which we’ve completed projects include: Herthum Heights, Herthum Hills, Chestnut Hills, Meadowbrook, South Woods, Jubilee Estates, Woodberry, and Oakwood, among many others.


However, to give you a better sense of the work we can do on residential properties, here are a few pictures of homes owned by Murphy Excavating family members. Our family began the project below in the early 1970s, and completed it in 1974. It was all hands on deck throughout the construction, and even the youngest Murphy children were asked to help.

To get started on the work, unwanted trees and brush were removed from the property, without stripping the area of its appealing, lush look. From there, the cellar was excavated, the foundation was installed, the foundation drains were put into place, walls were waterproofed and backfilled, and the construction of the actual home began. After this, a septic system was built and landscaping was completed. Today, the homes are more than 40 years old and are still as solid as the day they were built. This is a testament to our family’s attention to detail and commitment to excellence.

The two homes you see above were constructed in the early 1990s, and are still owned by members of the Murphy Excavating family today. The properties, known fondly as Murphy Manor, were built on a cornfield. We constructed a road that met town requirements, and was eventually converted into a town road. We handled the excavation of the cellars, cellar drain installation, backfilling, development of septic systems, creation of driveways, sidewalks, and retaining walls, and all landscaping
