Building houses: You'll get more experience with more stuff than you ever did your whole life up to that point.

We got the driveway graded today. He also buried the sewer lines and the septic tank. He did hit the two way cleanout but they'll take care of that tomorrow. The lot looks good, well better.

A good friend, Jesse, helped out tonight. Things are coming along and Tuesday looks to be the day for the final inspection (the first one anyway). I am waiting on the solar water heater to be installed and the driveway to be poured.

We had a bit of excitement when the neighbors called with concerns about water shedding into their yard, the fence being compromised and washing out etc. We came up with a solution that will work. There is 3 feet or less between the end of the driveway and the fence. The driveway slopes 2.5 inches on the back from the garage to the fenceline and the front line slopes 5 inches from the garage. Thus, the water will shed toward the front corner of the driveway and from there I'll have a larger space to contain and help channel it towards the front of our lot. I'll also add a decodrain along the driveway by the fence so any water that gets past our sloping will hit the drain and shed to the front as well. And water that gets past the slope and the drain will hit a berm with 2-4" rip rap on it. If that doesn't keep the water on our lot, a retaining wall will be needed. Since we have a few good storms a year it likely won't get much use.
