At least we'll be able to use the bathroom!
Although it isn't quite done (the guys needed to get another connection), it's getting there.
There's our septic tank.
We sure have lost some hay-ground and pasture in this process. Oh well, at least we'll be able to flush... if our bathrooms ever arrive.
We're going to have to make a decision on our water supply. We already paid $2,060 to the rural water folks; they didn't want to hook us up to the smaller line that runs along our dead-end road, so if we get on their lines, we have to hook on some 400 feet away. To do that, we have to pay half the cost of bring water from there to here. That's another $1,100. If we decide against them, they'll refund our deposit.
I'm going to call Culligan and see what the cost would be to get a water softener and maintain it. I have a feeling we'd be ahead using our ever-faithful well. The only thing I'm a bit concerned about is Cliff's heart issues: I've heard there is some salt in softened water. I can call and talk to the nurse at his heart specialist's office; perhaps she can guide me.
We shall see.
