bad architect

we had water leaking into the shop/our temporary home from this back wall, so i dug out a canal and paved a thin concrete ramp to drain the water more effectively. it seems to work for now, and we will eventually build our home over this area and shut off all rainwater from entering the shop.

so, i say bad architect because this all happened because we did not remove an existing containment wall, we built the shop right next to this wall, i now know the old wall should have been removed, and now its impossible to remove. fill dirt used to fill the area now dug out, you can almost see on the far left where i planted 200 vetiver plants to contain erosion

you can also see my homemade solar hot water heater on the roof.
