comment What records should I make of underground infrastructure, before covering it up?
It's a pretty wide-reaching law in the USA that you have to get the utilities located before you dig, but that's apparently only for utilitiy-owned lines, not private ones. See washington811.com "They will only mark the lines they own. They will not mark any private lines"

UK plugs are great in a lot of ways. Switches at the socket. Plugs that don't fall out. Handy source of caltrops when mob turns to looting.

A micro excavator or a Toro Dingo may be small enough to fit and carry the rock.

comment How common are wet rooms in the US?
@msanford: In cotton socks - yuck! In my experience there was a squeegee to clear the water up. Here's a super-compact version from an extreme RV: earthroamer.com/galleries/2006_interior/08_09_4381.htm

@shirlockhomes: Oops! I can't edit my comment for some reason. I meant "this is permanent service to a remote location (a post), not attached to a structure." There are no structures on the land at this time.
