As our farmhouse will be buried under 2,000 cubic yards of soil we have to make sure that it does not leak. The first action is to place a drain around the perimeter. This consisted of a 3" drain pipe with a sock around it covered in 3/4" rock. Any water that flows off the waterproofing will be carried away in this drain.
Next week we will start applying the water proof material. It should take us about ten days. We have to have it all ready for July 4th weekend when the earth moving equipment arrive to bury the house.
