Dad and I spent half-day Saturday, half-day Sunday and all day Monday working on the property. Dad drove the machine which left me as the 'ditch man'. Apparently there are all sorts of protocol items that the 'ditch man' should know in a formal construction operation. This was NOT a formal construction operation :)
Things we accomplished this weekend:
Ditch dug from the transformer to the home-site.
One 3" conduit for power and one 1" pipe for water.
Our water meter was installed last week, so I had to tap into it.
Note there are 2 couplers there.... it turns out one should WAIT for the
PVC to dry before turning on the water. Lesson learned.. the hard way.
Temporary water installed.
Power hand-hold installed, ready for the PUD
Home-site cleared and graded.
