Installing water and sewer services is easiest done before any footings, or foundations, are poured.
Our excavation contractors were not expected back for a few days, but they were rained out at another project. They surprised me by appearing yesterday morning with their crew. I quickly rescheduled my material delivery to allow them time to install the sewer main.
The first step is to make a connection to the man hole.
Install the cleanout, and we are ready for back filling.
By that afternoon, the sewer main extension was complete. Backfill and finished for the day
Next morning they are back to do the house connections.
Below is the street, back in service and better than before.
My framing package arrived just before we finished. Things got a little crowded.
Below is our guest house. It actually holds a double bed, a sofa, and a table with 4 chairs
It has been raining, or threatening rain, for the last few days but the project fit right in between showers. Someone is on my side.
This has been a huge first step. I have no nore excuses. I have to go to work. If my ICF forms arrrive by the middle of next week, there should be no delays.
Thanks to a very efficient crew.
