Well permit and house site.

Ev, here. we had a friend over a few weeks ago who does water witching and located a good well site (should hit water around 85 feet if he is correct). Last week we finalized our house site. I’ll try to upload a photo of the plat map with the house and well sites located on it to show you how it sits. The house will be fairly towards the front of the lot about 6-8 feet from parallel to the road so that the face will be as close to just east of south as we can be.

Dad and I drew up the lot map with the house, septic, and well sites and put the drawings on the well permit application forms so that we could get the well drilled ASAP. For some reason I can’t fathom we have to locate the house at this preliminary stage of the process. Rather than following the setback rules regarding distances from well and septic and siting the house accordingly later on. The county in their infinite wisdom requires the house to be sited before the first permit is approved. So with a healthy dose of trepidation and much planning, we took down the permit application to the county building and for only 502 dollars we were able to submit the paperwork for a well permit. Hopefully in the next week or two we will have a well drilled.

The rush is on to get the foundation poured before the winter weather keeps the concrete men from being able to pour.

Best regards.
