The architect emailed me yesterday with an update on the utilities situation. As I posted previously, our lot does not have water or sewer service so we’ve been planning on drilling a well and installing a septic system. The architect informed me that someone is interested in the five acres bordering our property so there may be some opportunity for sharing the costs associated with extending water service to both properties.
It appears the situation is fluid (pun intended) so we’ll see where it goes. We still like the idea of free water from a well, and from what I understand, can generally expect to have fine potable water not too far under our feet. At the very least, we may soon meet our future neighbors.
Kudos to our architect for keeping his ear to the ground and staying connected to goings-on in the area.
