Hi all,

Visited the house just before sunset this weekend to see how things will look after dark. One streetlight across from our driveway is well designed to shine down and not add much light pollution. Should make for some great star and meteor shower viewing in the back yard with all of our lights off.

Edit: Just noticed you can see the street light in the photo of the septic tank location.

Visible progress includes the septic tank being installed near the back corner of the house.







Mike, so this is brand new street with all those new build houses?

All utilities present?


Leo "Apolo11"

Per the picture - sewer is not included, and he had a well dug so water is also not included.

A septic system, not a sewer. Same job, differences in usage and responsibility.

Hi Leo, yes it's a brand new street and development. Was farm land a little over a year ago. All the utilities that we will have are already installed along the road, electricity, gas, cable, and phone. There won't be any municipal water supply or sewage, which is very common in less urban areas here. Instead, we have our well and the septic tank system.

We didn't make it over to the house this past weekend, so no new pictures. We are eager to hear when it will be time to have the pre-drywall inspection and meeting with the builder. He said that meeting is when we will get a pretty firm idea of when we can close, at least within a week or so. The projected time after that meeting is about 12 weeks, so we're already at risk for not being able to close by the end of August.

USS America - sheetrock - labor is the same but I am guessing your contractor wants to use 1/2 inch. I would go with 5/8 or 3/4 - it will cost you a smidge more in materials but will hold up picture hooks way better and has a significantly better fire rating.

RGR!

Do you have to have special filter for the water from the well?

Also, how often you have to empty the septic tank? Would you have to use it sparingly and not, for example, shower that often?

My aunt had this in her summer house on the Adriatic Coast (island of Krk) and she always reminded me to shower in the garden and not in the bathroom in the summer (i.e. water in the garden would go to ground and water in the bathroom would go to septic tank which had definite capacity and had to be emptied and that had to be paid for)...

Septic tanks settle out the solids while the liquids either have a drain field or a mound system to get rid of the liquids. Depending upon the usage and the size of the tank, it may be pumped out more than once a year or every few years. The tanks are usually between 500 and 1000 US gallons in size.

It sounds like someone just had a holding tank and not a septic system.

Crete is part of NATO an so is the US. So American military personnel may have been stationed on Crete and may still be stationed there. If they go native and stay there, then they would be Cretans.
