Mounds and Bottomless Sand Septic
This pass week I have spent researching two types of septic systems : Mounds and Bottomless Sand. My septic designer called and suggested the research, as I will be installing the septic myself, with professional guidance. Reference Material was from http://www.doh.wa.gov/ehp/ts/WW/pubs-ww-topic.htm. Both publications on Mounds and Sand systems were easy to understand. Another excellent resource was http://www.thenaturalhome.com/ . This site offers :
“Sustainable housing design, passive solar, green home, zero energy, high thermal mass (HTM™) do-it-yourself solar house plans are featured along with septic system parts and consultation”
Further Progress has been made on working with a builder and drafter, thanks to the recent Tacoma Home and Garden show. I interviewed several firms, took my time reviewing materials and actual buildings (yes, partially complete small homes), before making my selection.
I presented the Builder with a booklet of my ideas, simple drafts of my small home, and a site plan I created.
Great article from Builder Magaine Nov 2006. Read the pdf here…small houses and from homes designed by Ross Chapin. and cabins by Cabin Fever always inspire me. Till next time…
