Yesterday and today the septic tank was put in. Turns out we are sitting on a limestone shelf, more or less, and excavating the hole to drop in the tank was a matter of pulling out stones, rocks, slabs, and some mucking big boulders. (Mike is happy because now he has lots of rock for landscaping. He has plans for a firepit and a stone circle on the lower half.) Anyway, the pit was eventually dug & the tank went in just below the driveway; it's a thousand-gallon system, which should be plenty for a family of four, we're told. Leach field below that. Should be a nice green grassy field there ;-)
Meanwhile, the second-floor flooring is going in... rooms are starting to take shape. They'll frame next week.
