Main Street for 10 miles from the black top.

Cyndy filling in the blocks.

Our fresh water system ready for plumbing to the house, or motorhome...

Our demarkation line to keep from driving on the septic system.

Start of our entry way at the end of the driveway.

We drove to St. Johns and spent about 2 weeks in mid-July at our place. We worked on finishing the septic system, had to have it back filled and do more paperwork for the county. Then we built a little buffer to remind all not to drive over it, used rocks and agave plants for now. You'll see in the pictures the half round from the juniper marks the end of the septic. Then we worked on the fresh water system, built a small below ground room for the pump and plumbing to run. We will return before it gets too cold and insulate the cover, should work well for now. And last did some work on starting the short block entry way wall at the end of the driveway. In between it all many trips to town to get water, had to fill the septic tank all the way up as it was being back filled (1,000 gallons), put more water in the water tank (1,550 gallon tank-not full yet)and re-supply our water supply in the motorhome. We must say thanks to the folks at the Ace Hardware in St Johns, they have been friendly and helpfull in keeping us moving on our projects. Y'all take care now.
