Curtain Drain

     Sorry it's been awhile since the last post.  Chad and I are both teachers, and returned to school this past week after our April Break.  In the evenings, we spent the little time left in the day re-leveling and re-pounding that first course of tires.  It is important that it is really solid and level, as that will be the base of our whole back wall.  It took a lot of tweaking, but Thursday we were ready to set the line to prepare for laying the next course of tires.  Meanwhile, Ryan and Mack, one of Chad's former students, dug a very deep trench uphill from the earthship and all of the way around to catch groundwater and direct it to the sides of our future house.
