When we realised we needed to dig 40metres of trenches for piping; storm water and sewage, hiring a digger was the obvious choice.
When we rang to book the digger the machine was only available between 9am-4pm. The pressure was on. Fortunately as it hadn’t rained the digging went more quickly than we estimated.
Prior to taking this tangent we’ve been building our deck. Decking had come to a halt though as the trench was to intersect through the decking, unless we wished to dig by hand it was time to take a detour. In no time we had two trenches dug.
Whilst PC was on the digger I raced into town for a couple of loads of crusher dust, which was then spread as a base in the trenches.
Next the pipes were laid and joined up
ready for the plumber to come and connect to the outlets.
One trench covered over and the next trench ready.
Satisfying to have one more job completed and crossed off the list. Back to the decking.
