Thank you..

It was brought to my attention that I'm and inspiration to a few friends of mine. With basically building all this with my own two hands and minimal help.

Never really considered that. I always just figured people viewed me as a regular guy just trying to get things done.

The way to happiness, or at least contentment. I think most of us view our projects as just something that has to be done.

Git'r done, Tim.

Yep,a regular guy,building a dream.
The only chore i don't do anymore is wash the cars,we have a fancy drive through car was here that has a monthly subscription.
you can wash your car every day,like 25 bucks a month.
Its next to home depot,and takes a few minutes for the wash but man is that easy.
everytime we go to HD we get a car wash.

The pickup has to have the bed empty,so it never gets washed.
No way i can unload all that shit to get it washed.

But yes Tim,i think we all salute you for doing what your doing,but we also want to kick your ass too.
Keep building,you will be fine.

Started on the power feed for the well between the main panel and where it will exit the building to go underground to the well. The trenching and conduit outside will be done by the well company. I'm having 1" schedule 80 buried. For now it's just to run the well but later I'm going to change it to have a 50 amp panel in the well house and feed the well pump out of it and have a circuit to run a heater in the winter.

Going to build a 8x8 well house with a removable roof but tall enough to stand in.

As a former Fireman we liked wells hooked directly to pole disconnect . We could kill the building power and still pump water . 10-15 gallon a minute don't sound like much but it helps keep pumper fed between tanker drops . .

Had not thought about that. Not sure what hoops I'd have to jump through with the county and the power company though.

I like the idea of the remote power feed.
and having a removeable roof is excellent.
or at the very least you can put a hatch in the roof,12x12'' or so,just big enough to drop a cable through and pull the pump out.
did they use plastic drop pipe to the pump?
if so,the hatch may not work so well?

My brothers well building is about that size. He poured a concrete slab around the well, and framed a building. He used 1/2” plywood inside, and cut access panels where the anchor bolts are.

Electrical feed goes into a subpanel using liquidtite or similar flexible conduit, so undo the connections, undo the anchor bolts, and pick the whole building off with a crane.

If he ever needs to have a drill reset over it again it can be done.
