Progress 5

Since we’ve decided to include a bathroom in our new barn, we get to replace our septic system. Currently we have a dry well – certainly not code anymore. If we upgrade, we need to put in an above ground system since the soil has such poor drainage. Roger on Kevin’s tractorIn an effort to make it as invisible as possible, the engineer suggested we put it at the edge of the woods, along the fence row that we are gradually removing. Yesterday, our builder Kevin brought his cool John Deere tractor up to dig the test holes and the engineer used a little book of colors to determine the types of soil layers in the holes. Of course Roger couldn’t resist the chance to sit on someone else’s bigger toys. Sure looks like fun to me.

It’ll be less of a challenge to get it up the stairs that way. Oh yeah, I guess I forgot to mention that we have stairs too. And walls upstairs. The electrician has been busy stringing wires and setting outlets and switches. There are lots of exciting things going on.

    FUN to read my first blog and have it be you! Somehow, I don’t think I would be as intersted in many others…not nearly so full of flowers, color, design and personal connections.

    Glad to find you.
    I might forget to check this regularly, but will be glad to know you are there, and will tuck you into favorites…
