The title for this post is not entirely accurate. Before we even got to this point we eliminated many existing homes and locations, selected the piece of property, selected a builder, decided on a floor plan, created our plot plan so that we preserve the view, have our gardens and trees, and access to the shop and RV pad, and redesigned the master suite and kitchen. Now things are happening. Our purchase of the property was partially contingent on our acceptance of a percolation test for a septic system so we have already had that done and accepted a plan for a system. This step is the process of getting a well drilled and then getting the water accepted by the county as being potable. So obviously we start with the well.
The crew has drilled down around 90 of the projected 160 feet. As you can see in the photo above they have found water already. We will continue on to get better water and a more stable flow rate.
This is obviously hard and dirty work. I am glad that I don’t have to do it.
Good water at 165 feet! The well has its official tag and the water sample is being checked. Soon we will be able to get the permits and start to really “get-r-done”!
Looking Forward To A New Home Base,
