From: Mass. USA. now in Lancaster, OHIO
Visited the house just before sunset this weekend to see how things will look after dark. One streetlight across from our driveway is well designed to shine down and not add much light pollution. Should make for some great star and meteor shower viewing in the back yard with all of our lights off.
Edit: Just noticed you can see the street light in the photo of the septic tank location.
Visible progress includes the septic tank being installed near the back corner of the house.
Mike, so this is brand new street with all those new build houses?
All utilities present?
Hi Leo, yes it's a brand new street and development. Was farm land a little over a year ago. All the utilities that we will have are already installed along the road, electricity, gas, cable, and phone. There won't be any municipal water supply or sewage, which is very common in less urban areas here. Instead, we have our well and the septic tank system.
Do you have to have special filter for the water from the well?
Also, how often you have to empty the septic tank? Would you have to use it sparingly and not, for example, shower that often?
My aunt had this in her summer house on the Adriatic Coast (island of Krk) and she always reminded me to shower in the garden and not in the bathroom in the summer (i.e. water in the garden would go to ground and water in the bathroom would go to septic tank which had definite capacity and had to be emptied and that had to be paid for)...
