Wednesday update

Monday saw the laying of the pipe work for the water tank and sewerage. The green pipe is for the charged water system. All the downpipes drain into this green pipe and then flow back up into the water tank. The idea is all the stormwater run off from the roof ends up in your water tank rather than from just a couple of downpipes near the tank. The tank water has to be plumbed into the toilets and washing machine. If the water in the tank falls below a certain level then it gets topped up automatically from town water so you can still flush the toilets and wash.

Tuesday saw the completion of the pipe work and today the frames and trusses were delivered.

Shouldn't be too long before it starts to look like a house!
