Holy cow, things is a happening

A big, big milestone was reached today.

Today, we had Daniel from Geo Drill come out to the block and do the soil tests. So the first actual work to be done on the block that has meaning in this whole big adventure has been completed. Daniel drilled core samples for the slab engineering as well as setting percolation test holes for determining what sort of effluent disposal system we will be allowed to use.

Now we just need to wait on the engineers interpretations of the results to see if we need a complicated and expensive slab for the house, or if we’ll be able to get away with something that isn’t going to cause great financial pain.

We’re being billed for this as part of the engineering work so I don’t as yet have the full account. I expect it to be somewhere between $1600 and $1800.
