    Default Cubby House - site location

    Hi all,

    I've selected a site for my cubby house at the bottom of my yard. The site has what looks like a stormwater drain (see photo) in the middle of it.


    Two questions:

    1. Is it ok to build a cubby over the drain (from a structural perspective rather than a planning perspective)?
    2. The far corner is actually on top of a 5 metre high retaining wall. Is there any problem sinking a cement filled hole there do you think?

    Thanks so much for your advice.

    From a structural perspective do a google on zone of influence to understand how a footing in that area is likely to affect the drain and retaining wall.
