We have been working toward getting site approval for the local electric company to initiate a construction order for the power lines. The meter base has been purchased and we have the dimensional plans for the well house and the yurt base. We are planning to build the well house using Cord Wood construction. Here are some samples of some of the construction.
Many of these pictures are credited to Richard Flatau and can be seen at his awesome blog and Cordwood Construction Best Practices
