Making foundation for new sunroom/ and room under sunroom

We removed our deck and now in that place. on the top we are making a sunroom on top and bottom into a closed room. So for the bottom we need to dig 24inch and make a concrete foundation about 600 cubic foot. Problem is, we can't bring a big truck concrete mixer around the back where this will be built. what other ways we can fill up that area with concrete? Need some advices.

It's not cheap to have done, but it can be pumped up and over the house, or just loaded into a skid loader or tractor bucket and brought to where it's needed..

You can get some guys with wheelbarrows. There are jockey trucks used on commercial construction sites specifically for moving concrete around. Then there is concrete pumping. I'm assuming you'll go with wheelbarrows or the pumper. It's a pretty common problem that is easily solved if you put a little money/labor to it.

Another option would be to just pour the concrete footer 8" thick and then lay block to get the desired height.
