This is the day we get our septic system. We had requested and were approved for a five-bedroom system. We really needed four, but since we are building an apartment over the garage, it is considered a "separate" dwelling and the minimum system is for two bedrooms. Adding the main-house three bedrooms is how we end up with two 1,200 gallon septic tanks and an Infiltrator Systems' gravelless drainfield chamber system. Most of the time, it will only be the two of us, so this should last forever.

I wanted a driveway to the lower level where the house would be built over a daylight basement. Dennis had to move many tons of soil to build up the lower driveway. He did a wonderful job of packing the soil in 8" lifts.

We were so lucky to have a lot that was right on a ridge line. This gave us a lot of soil that we used to level off two pads. I never expected we would end up with a flat yard on the side of the mountain; this is a really nice bonus.
