Walking through @homedepot , covered in mud, will get you some strange looks.

Over the past three weeks we have been working on trenching and laying pipe for electrical and water.
First, we called "8-1-1 Call before you dig!" Which didn't help us at all. Though we knew our land had water and electric existing (the trailer home we demolished was connected to it), we didn't know where it was buried and apparently, they didn't either. They found the water main but that was it. So we had to just learn as we went and be as extremely careful as possible.
Our soil is clay. Straight up clay and rocks. At first, we attempted to dig trenches manually with shovels but quickly realized that we needed some power behind it. Last weekend we rented a trencher from ABC Rental Equipment. It made it easier but still wasn't easy.
We've got 115 ft from the electric pole to the container, 35ft from the water spigot to the container, and then an additional 25ft from the container to the foundation where we're building our porch.

The pipe went in and that was as much as we had in us for last weekend.

Yesterday, we tested the water from the main to the anti-freeze water spigot and noticed that we must have cut through the water line at some point because there was water coming up elsewhere. So today we went back, fixed the leak and water is flowing perfectly!
We could have hired someone else but that would have been too easy, haha.

Bittersweet moment. I cozied up in bed to enjoy my tiny tree and, as I took the picture, the reality of life in SoCal right now popped up on the screen. So saddened by all of the loss but thankful for all of the lives saved. Sending continued prayers to everyone affected thus far. 🙏🏼💞
To investigate some examples of small living, I got to visit a wigwam and other holiday like accommodation! The wigwams in particular weren’t too helpful for my research but I loved their external aesthetic 🍂🍁 #wigwam #camping #research #smallliving #microliving #project #design #productdesign #designer
