Compressing the gravel, etc

We wanted to get a head start on Monday for an inspection (underground plumbing) and get ready to pour the concrete slab on Tuesday at 8am.

Underground plumbing in my case is just one septic pipe that protrudes up through the future concrete slab, so we need to run the pipe 10 feet above the gravel and put water in it, testing it for 15 minutes. If it doesn’t leak then we can pour the slab.

In addition the County wants to take a look at the rebar for the retaining wall, which divides the lower level (carport / storage).

So by working four hours on Saturday we’re ready to go!
