Digging the Foundations

  • Studio

Finally I’m underway with digging the foundations for the pottery studio/storage shed. The building consent came through at the end of February and my builder Rudolph set out the profiles in early April, then the Bobcat came in and started drilling the holes. I managed to hit huge rocks, a septic tank outflow line and the phone cable (luckily not the power!). So that has meant an extra week of work with a new trench around the site for the power and phone connections, some clever engineering to get the rocks out and a clay plug to stop the septic water filling the hole . The holes are now all down to the right depth and cleaned waiting for the inspection on Thursday.
