I found this thread while looking for a different answer (drilling some small holes into a concrete floor), but now I need closure.

How did you resolve this? Was the answer 'more concrete'? Or to move? Or did you decide that, actually, Mrs C was the problem?
Sorry, didn't see your reply.

I drilled about 30 holes through the concrete, with a large SDS drill (40mm bit about 400mm long). Filled bottom 3ft with rubble. Conveniently a house up the road was demolishing stuff, so I barrowed away a load of their rubble. Covered that with a garden mesh. Then barrowed in sand; 4 dumpy bags of the stuff.

Never got round to building the steps down to this.

Some millenia hence archeology students are going to have a field day working you out ;D
