The Septic is In!
As I've probably mentioned before, I find it perplexing that the first thing the county wants us to do is to get our septic installed. Why not electricity or well? I don't know why it's all about the septic, but I have to admit, I've never been so excited about a sewer in my life.
It was installed yesterday and we went to take a look. Here are some pictures of what will be buried underground in front of and slightly to the side (northwest) of our house.
It's big. See the green pipe sticking up in the back? That will be where we plug in the camper we will live in while building. There will be a pipe going from that spot (underground) to the house (which will be to the left of this photo) when the time comes.
This is looking from the other direction at the tank and down toward the drain field. The four white pipes (two close and two farther away) are the vents. Those will stick up from the ground, but I'll plant a nice flower bed in this area to disguise them. Considering what will be in the ground beneath, I bet that will be one flourishing flower bed!
