.....and I have read that 4”–8” of drainage gravel was the recommended amount to use. Such a wide margin as to the soil type and climate I'm sure.

I know you want to do nothing but your best with this construction, and it shows with all your hard work and dedication but don't let it rob you of your creativity by remembering to keep be out of the lines every so often! :)

After all, with the break from building and all that free time you must now have on your hands (when their not busy feeding your rmh or petting your girls) what a great way to pass on your fountain of knowledge.
...can you tell we miss your updates Peter?
