Sometimes it's the simple things...

How exciting is the installation of a Septic Fosse?  Well, for us it is pretty darn exciting! We have been planning this for years and happy it is finally finished.
That cement tank is about 4 inches thick with steel reinforcement bars, capacity is about 1000 gallons. It was filled about to the half way point with water. A big storm was forecast and we didn't want the tank to float up out of the hole. And did we ever get a storm!

While the tank was filling with water it was time to dig for the filter/leach field.

And then it rained, and rained some more!

We got a LOT of rain. But the gravel and stone didn't seem to mind at all. The progress was delayed several days while the standing water in the holes was pumped out.

  Once the earth was dry enough to handle the weight of the equipment work proceeded quickly.

Marvelous Marcel covered the area with the top soil he had so carefully removed on day one. He tidied up the area and drove his front loader-back hoe home.

That's one more project finished and crossed off the list. 
But wait, we just now have to add "landscape kitchen garden" to our list... oh dear!

And if you have thanks for reading.
