Before and After

The septic is hooked up and working. We passed and the excavator is relieved. This is the first time he has jumped through the new hoops (guidelines) put in place by the state. They’ve made it complicated and expensive to upgrade and put in new systems and our engineer was being a stickler. But the mounds of dirt are gone. So are the trenches and large holes. The men have worked all week to cover things up and smooth things out. They’ve put down loam and spread it nicely. And this morning they were spreading grass seed and covering it with hay. This time of year is perfect for grass growing – a little soft rain and nice sunshine and we’ll be good to go. If not, it will all be ready for Spring.

There are just a few more outside projects before the excavators move on: Another smaller curtain drain along the side of the driveway (which doesn’t need inspection!), a little bit of stone work to fix a walkway and our front steps, prep of the driveway for paving, and resculpting the lower corner of the yard for better surface water drainage. Just two more days. Then they’re done. We’ll miss them – great workers and awfully nice guys .
