The joiners get a chance at the end of Jan to return to put in the
skirting and door architraving in place
lots of painting needed on hands and knees for the skirting, some primed already,
but top coat needed on all of them....
mid-week sees the arrival of the water package tanks
first, 2 primary settlement tanks on lorry one
then, 5 hours later, the main filtration tank arrives....delayed by motorway hold-up
the Herdy's look on with interest....
interim resting place with a view...it won't be there for very long
the unloading was much easier than the departure of the delivery lorry which went off piste part way down the track....unwise since the field is very wet due to the recent rains
telehandler to the rescue - pulled from back....
...and then from the front back onto the track
Thank you Ian for getting the lorry out of it's predicament and on its way
1st Feb sees the installation get underway with diggers and dumpers at the ready...
checking out what is what in the tank
digging gets underway - a dry day for once...
the enormous hole for the main tank...
settling it into place on the bed of gravel
after the first primary settlement tank goes in, backfilling with gravel
and the last primary settlement tank goes in.....
all tanks necessary for 20 person accommodation
precision levelling required
next, the connecting pipe between the barn outlet and the tanks is put in place
all tanks in - looking from the east
....and looking from the west
drainage field still to be put in, and connected up, but need to wait for a drier spell
