Build Week 1

This was a week of preparation and traipsing around in the sticky clay. The aim was to get the foundations & drainage set out and started, and to get the retaining wall waterproofed and french drain installed.

The constant on / off rain proved very frustrating as the clay became really sticky and foundation excavations filled with water. However David, Mick & Tom battled through, and the first week was relatively successful with the retaining wall waterproofed externally with the french drain installed to carry water away from behind the wall. The mains drainage was connected and most of the foundations excavated.

Looking forward to week 2 getting the foundations poured and looking like things are starting to take shape ... and some better weather would be nice too.
