I’ve been framed…

My last update was when we had just finished pouring the concrete slab.  Since then carpenters Tom, Ron and Chelsea have done a great job getting the house framed, walls up, trusses on and ready for the roof.  Our schedule is to roughly be at lock-up by early November.  Now at least the house has a shape and form.  It is interesting to walk through the house, checking out the different rooms.  The size and scale of the house changes with each new bit of construction – sometimes feeling way too big, other times just right!

Well…

When doing the winter fence project, we discovered a well in the hedgerow.  With no end in sight to the never ending summer, I decided that today would be a good day to pump out the well and check the recovery rate.  My neighbours Grant and Gerry helped out and Manuel made a quick appearance in a supervisory capacity.  We discovered the well is about a metre in diameter by nearly six metres deep.  Cleaning it wasn’t an experience for the squeamish or those with claustrophobia.  Anyway, we’ll check the recovery rate tomorrow but hopefully we’ll be on to a new source of water for my winter planting project!
