Been working. Both at my day job and on my land.

The slab is a monolithic pour. I guess you could pour the footings first but you would have long lemgths of rebar sticking out.

I have a soil scientist who is supposed to be coming out either Thursday or Friday to do a perc test. About two weeks out on having the well drilled.

Hoping to pour concrete the week of September 17th.
Oh and I have the anchor bolts brought and in possession.

Sunday the soil scientist finished up the soil testing for the septic leach field. I should expect the paperwork on the mail later this week. Then I can go pull the permits.

I find that odd. Specially with the freezing weather.


Also had some help yesterday smoothing up the building pad. Friend brought out his Ford 8N tractor.

How level do you think you have the pad now?

Septic beds, if functioning properly, won’t freeze. There’s enough heat generated in the septic tank, and the bottom of the tank is below frost level too.

Raised mounds here are generally a ‘filter bed’ with a specific sand used. On top of that is 10-12” of coarse (usually 1 1/2-2”) stone, where the pipe is. Any effluent from the tank drains into the stone right away, and then on down into the filter sand.

At the farm the tank and bed have been installed about 15 years and no issues.

Most of it is within 2-3" about 1/4 of it within 4".

Keep having to remind myself it will have to be final graded in after all the footings are dug anyway.

Ever seen a raised mound that worked? Not here. The county is forcing this down our throats, and the contractors building them tell the customer that they won't work, but have to be done anyway. And when they fuck up, and flood your lawn, and freeze solid, why you just dig up the discharge line, and go to a pump out setup quietly.
Like I did.

Tim,you need to cover that pad with plastic before you get 12inchs of rain on it.
Cover the edges with dirt,if you don't its going to wash away.

Rain ended up being a non issue for me. In fact I can still see the tire marks in the ground from the last time I drove on the building pad over a week ago.

Went to the county health department this morning and turned in the paperwork for the septic permit.
