The plumber arrived at 7 this morning! The pipes were set into the trenches and I filled in around them with crusher dust. I think it took me about 8 wheelbarrow loads. Building biceps, building biceps. That's my mantra these days.
My kids were terribly excited to have the new wash room up and running. Is that just a boy thing or do young girls have the same fascination? It leaves me bewildered and often frustrated on a daily bases. Potty talk is hilarious in this house at the moment.
So now I am filling in the rest of the crusher dust over top of the pipe and then laying in some of the soil that I dug out to make the trench. Finally, I will begin carting in more gravel to lay over the top of it all. Some day, the deck will extend over this area. Hopefully the next trench I dig unveils a chest of buried treasure to pay for that.
Digging the trench out by hand instead of hiring a machine saved me a lot of money. I can't say it was enjoyable, but it feels good to have it done and know that I did that part myself.
