If you missed how the A-Hole came to be, you can see that here.
Here's a quick update.
We had a little rain. Not enough to stop forward progress. After much badgering, the concrete slugs showed up to build the forms for the footings. I guess they decided just bringing the forms was more work than they could handle and left for the day. And never came back.
Then we got more rain.
The giant hole is wet.
I guess they brought their hose too. Actually, it's called tile, but I'm not using that for my bathroom floor. Ugly.
Last, but not least, we bought a sump pit. Now, we are having a gravity drain that runs from the house all the way to the back of the property, so in theory, we'll never need a sump pump. In theory. What if a tree root grows into the tile and clogs it? At that point, it's much easier to have a sump pit ready to go than it is to have a flooded basement.
Philly wouldn't let me paint right on the lid, so I had to do this on the computer. Funsucker.
Tell me that little piggy-lid isn't dying for a smile to be painted on it.
