Now the wall is nearing completion it's time to crack on with the back of the house so we can get the boiler in.
Unfortunately this means digging up more of the patio to put in a proper retaining wall. I'm doing this a stage at a time though as we only need to do the first section to get the pipes in for the boiler.
|The boiler is going between the two pillars on the wall.|
Unfortunately the day we chose to do this it rained all day, both my dad and I were soaked through and were both ravenous by the lunch time, I think we were burning calories just trying to stay sanding up in the mud!
As usual we ended up concreting the footings in the dark, but I was pleased with the results in the light the next morning.
Tomorrow we're doing more digging, again regardless of the weather, to lay all the pipes and cables that we need. I have a feeling it's going to be a long, wet & muddy day!
