tying into new septic tank
Crawl space wall is almost complete as you can see in the photos. The long trench will contain the piping connecting the existing house to the new septic tank. It turns out that the inconvenience caused by "abandoning" - crushing - what we thought was a septic tank not in use - moved up some work that had to be done anyway and it is easier to dig the trench now than run it through the finished crawlspace later. It also makes sure we get a larger drop to the tank which lessens problems in that long run.
