Week 2

 

Drilling was begun and has been progressing well. Six of the sixteen vertical boreholes have been completed. Each borehole is 300 feet deep and filled with a continuous, closed section of flexible pipe.  The two ends of the pipe are left sticking out of the ground.  These will eventually be interconnected and extended into the house.

The most surprising discovery was the partial uncovering of the small concrete moat that the Dawes family had built for their children.  The waterfall section that fed the moat has always been visible, but the moat has been buried for years with no record of its location.  We still do not know the size or configuration. We will be exploring our archeological find after the drilling is completed.  Stay tuned!
