Week 20: Trenching

With the concrete complete and the framing started we dug our trenches for the utilities today. This involved 2 trenches:
1 "dry" trench for gas, power, and telephone.
1 "wet" trench for water, sewage, and drainage (see the photo below of the 8'-0" deep sewer excavation).

The complicated part was that we had to "saw-cut" and trench through the driveway and not cut through the existing utilities which are all "live" and connected to the main house. Over the next week we will install and cover all of the utilities for the iT House so that it can be connected and functioning by the time our finish work is complete.
