Termite infested bushes, trees and tank stand
Revealing the original ground level when built.
Reinforced by finding a very old spoon drain

These hardwood floorboards came out of the kitchen. You can see the felling axe cuts in what would have been the side of the log, before being sawn.
Same board with the bark still on the underside.
On this pit sawn board you can clearly see the last inch which was split off rather than being sawn. Old stuff.
