Also, the upper part of the hole is more like 4' x 5'. In the end, it took 7
yards of concrete to fill the hole!

I had a similar "problem."  My contractor fix-bid a 5 x 5 x 7 tower footing
and then proceeded to build one 7 x 7 x 9 !  With over 16 yards of concrete
under it, I don't think my tower's going anywhere, either.  :)
