    The walls are going up and the feel of the house is beginning to take shape in phase 1 of the construction.

    At this point I began working on the drain system as we decided to separate our toilet drains out from the rest of the drainage system. Toilet drains will go to their own, dedicated septic tank. The grey water drains from the sinks and showers will go their own underground, 2 stage clarifier tank which will separate off oils and greases off the surface with a lower access that will make the clarified grey water available used for watering the gardens.

    The washing machine will have its own drainage system as well, discharging to a circuit of 4″ slotted ABS pipe that we laid to weave throughout the gardens.

    (This drainage system design continues to perform flawlessly after 13 years of daily use and has left me wondering why this type of water management is not mandated in regions today where they deal with perennial droughts?)
