The heavy rains at the beginning of November highlighted the need to add some more drainage to the Main House site.
To the left, Willy Willow is inspecting the 2" poly pipe to ensure that enough holes were drilled in to let the water seep in the top of the pipe and then drain out the end of the pipe.
Thankfully the floor had not been built up yet; another few hundred wheelbarrow loads of gravel are still to be hauled!
Below, another drainage pipe was slid underneath the two Arbutus trees to allow the ash pit of the Ondol tunnel to drain before the water level could rise high enough to reach the cob foundation walls.
Of course, once the roof is in place, with its wide overhang, these drainage issues will likely never reappear, but if they do, we've got the systems now in place...let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!
