Tuesday Morning Update

Couple more shots from yesterday, finishing up the two block effort. The reason they only went two blocks is simple, really. That's as high as you want to go in order to put in the lower electrical outlets and run wire in the walls. Of course, later all the counter-top outlets will be put in in similar fashion after four or five rows of block have been installed.

Here's a view showing the height of the foundation and the first two rows of blocks. The walls will be 9' high, so it will be a pretty tall structure even with just one floor's height.

Yesterday afternoon, the guys started digging the trenches for the septic drain field. This morning, they finished and began dumping gravel into the trenches. Then 3" perforated pipe will be laid over the gravel. This will be covered with another layer of gravel, then the whole thing will be covered with a layer of filo.
