 Today, while we are waiting for the arrival of the ready mixed concrete on Monday, we carried on with the preparation and installation of the pipework running around the perimeter of the building, with 8 separate connections to the roof and the guttering (when that is built!).

The pipework is standard 110 mm diameter sewage underground pipes, with down-pipes from the guttering in all the internal corners of the building (except  the one beside the back door near the garage, which is along a straight section)

We managed to do behind bedroom 2, bedroom 1, and around the Great Room (including the conservatory) doing 4 down-pipe sections. The depth of the main “ring” around the house is set to 350 mm below ground level, running 50 mm above the foundation strips, tight next to the Perimeter Wall.

On Saturday, we will hopefully finish off the front of the house and down the side back toward the Swimming Lane and the Filtration Module where the rainwater pipes will terminate.
