Backfill, Garage Drains August 1-3
Due to the rain and heat wave in July, plus difficulties getting the garage drain pipe
trench dug past HUGE tree roots, Sean did not get to backfill until the middle of this week.
This photo shows Alex trying to cut through the roots with an ax in 100 degree weather!
Sean finally used a skid loader to pry roots loose and distribute the pea gravel backfill.

loader. Sean should have known better than to have left the keys with me overnight!

The garage drain pipe connections can now be completed.
Finished running the drain into the crawl space. In this space, Sean will put a trap in
the line and connect to future bathroom vent. The wall braces were put up because rain
was a threat. With all the potentially wet mud on one side of the wall there is a risk
of wall collapse. End of work day 8/3/2006.
