More work and a tractor, we have a bunch of enrichment for the garden.

Working on the barn again, pulled off the other side. And our barn like structure was really a compost pile.

Scrounge up some old stuff and we have a new light. The things that side track me while cleaning up old junk. only thing new I'm going to have to buy is the caps for the pipe.

The barrels setup in the basement for water as we were working on the well. Once the cellar is done they will be moved there and moved higher for better gravity feed. Also going to put a Schrader adapter on and use a bike pump, or our battery powered pump to pressurize the system. Which has worked well so far.

This system has been cheap and effective, worked great for our time without running water. We had all the 3/4 pipe from the basement.

Thanks

Fun times, well pump went out. Furnace stopped working, and the breaker box started arcing. Three bad well pumps later and 3 week's without water. The ponds worked great for flushing the toilet. New water storage in the basement 60g of fresh water. it's a good thing we always have back up plans, wasn't much disturbance other than showers. We already had backup heat, and a secondary water pump.
