A Small Snag....

My husband, Tom and brother in law, Ronnie had started digging the area to set the containers in, the well digger was drilling our new well, they had the forms ready for concrete man and then the well came up dry!  We have a well on the property that we put in for my sister in law almost two years ago, but isn't a strong flowing well, runs about 3 gals per minute.  And while it is possible to share this well, it would not be possible to use the containers in the area we'd need to be in to access the current well.  So we had to rethink our decision to put containers onto the property.  Tom was bummed, we started coming up with alternatives.  However, there is city water available, so we waited til Monday morning and headed for Porum, Ok to see if it was available to us.  The head of the Water Dept came and spoke with us, told us he'd come and look over the situation as their main line is about 700 ft from our property line.  He'll have to put in for a permit with the state, we'll need to apply for access to Porum's water and have the septic approved. And then if they can dig a trench 24 inches down into the ground and  rock, we will have access to water.  But our plans will be put on hold until all of this is accomplished.  Everything happens for a reason, I always say, so I'll wait to see how things go.  It could always be worse, I could have no where to live!
The first two shots are of the hole for the containers, the second two shots are of the building of the forms for the concrete footings needed for the containers and the last if of the well digger.
