Let it Rain

Progress.  Today our ground workers built a dam to keep out the water. Right on cue it started to rain... and it worked!


When we arrived this evening they were still hard at work. Along with laying the dam they had dug and installed the second control shaft we can use to see the ground water level around the house (and pump it out if required) and were in the process of putting in the rain water cistern, which is huge!


   




The drainage was also laid on one side of the cellar and the protective foil was stuck on the wall on two sides.

Tomorrow they should complete the drainage and hopefully start filling in the hole.
