Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

It actually drilled pretty easy. Much faster than I expected but my dainty wrists and biceps were a bit tender this morning. I spent a few hours with the skidsteer today. We laid the perforated pipe around the 3 uphill sides and covered with rock. Then I backfilled the downhill side and leveled out ...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

You beat me to my own post. I was planning to update later today. Top of the wall is probably 9' from finished floor which will be concrete slab at the level of the bottom of the door frame.

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Exactly right. I may have mentioned in passing. So far I've spent over $10k on soil testing and additional engineering above and beyond what the architect was paid. Many, many times more than that on excavation, addition concrete, and retaining walls. Not bragging, but not an FML by any means. Just ...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Along the bottom of the wall in the first pic will be a flexiible drain pipe coverd by rock. The pipe will drain downhill under the back yard. Then a waterproof membrane gets applied to the outside.
