I am building my first home. Lucky me because it is in the woods! It is an adventure I surely will not forget.

Again, yes, another perc appointment!

This is the fifth one, so far, and it isn't over yet. It is scheduled for later this week. Today I have to go meet Sammy to discuss some more holes.
Hopefully one day, we will move on from septic hole to water well hole!
I'm trying to rationalize the high cost of Septic World. If I get to use the shale out of the knoll for around the culvert, and use it for the driveway, and pick up the 1100 sq of free new, still bundled, shingles in Chatham, and then get the barn for free, more free stuff from the yahoo freecycle and yahoo reuseit groups, and other places, maybe all the mucho $ I may have to sink into, or rather on top of, the ground for septic, may balance out.

Honestly, I could use a composting toilet or an outhouse! Now, there is an idea. Think about it, how many people use the outhouses at Heldeberg Workshop, for how many years...

I like the solar "powered" outhouses up at the Lawsons Lake campsite!! The waste cooks in the sort of greenhouse glass enclosure. Maybe cooking it makes it decompose faster??
