The hydro lines have been installed underground, and the geo thermal heating lines have been buried under the driveway.
Here is a picture of the geo lines (the black cables) 6 feet underground. The telephone line and Hydro lines are installed on the "shelf" beside it which is 40" deep.
Here is a picture on the way up the driveway (before you enter the treed area). This was taken October 4th - you can see the fall colours already! The house on the right is at road level....you can see how high the hill is...
Next - as soon as the well is installed, the plastering can begin!
