Friday 15th February 2005 - Oh Well

Fuck it !

Yesterday, the builders found a well. So, after a whole 3 days of smooth work we've ground to a halt.
OK, it's not quite as bad as it sounds. I mean, it is a deep well, and could go even deeper (they haven't hit the bottom yet and they're down to 3 metres), but if it goes much further the engineer will design some steel to go over it. Then we just pour concrete over the top.
Still, it puts us back a day or two right at the beginning.

UPDATE : It looks like they've hit the bottom at just past 3 metres. If so, they'll have to dig around it for a metre or so (2 days) and then we can pour concrete. If not, the engineer will design some steels to put across it, dig around it even more and then pour concrete.

Put a toilet over it and get on with the building.....problem solved.
