the plumber was on site today and we tackled the dreaded task of hammering through the frozen solid ancient river sediments. Many existential questions were asked, such as, why am I doing this, don’t I have a dozen more urgent concerns than jacking this hideously tough rock? At least we are making progress. I need these basements done, and poured. Soon.
a lot of hard work is invested in making these basements drain properly. This needs to last decades with little to no maintenance.
