The Well

There was an old well on this property - actually there are two but I'll talk about the other one some other time. Anyway the guy who lived here used this well. He had a bucket and rope. So we would like to continue to use this well for yard and garden water.

First of all we had to knock down the old structure around the well. Then Bryan dug up around it until the actual well was exposed. It is a very cool looking well. R says it looks like "The Ring" which I haven't seen but I'll take her word for it. I wish I knew who built it and when. Bryan and D cleared it out and leveled it out so we could have a concrete vault delivered and set into it. This vault will house the pump. Now Bryan is working on putting in the pipes and pump and the hydrants.

You'll also notice that the 'house' is completely gone and the hole filled in.
