    Thank you and it seems to have been more a matter of paying $$$ than anything else....

    The 'site plan' is a small scribbled drawing that looks somewhat like our land... :haha:

    I think the main thing is don't put the septic system next to the well.... :rolleyes:

    I think that should be commonsense.

    I was shocked when the county health dept sent our drawing. I was expecting something more.......... professional looking.

    Congrats on the big step.

    Isn't it funny how homesteaders get their thrills from septics and wells! Don't downplay this...it is a major milestone. What would be the appropriate beverage and wording for the celebratory toast?

    I would LOVE to post the 'site plan'-it is SO funny.. :haha:

    However as it is so vague it would be difficult to put the septic in the wrong place....

    Afterall we simply followed the site plan. :D

    It Is funny how excited we all get over rather 'boring' events...

    I used to LOVE muscle cars and fast bikes...now it is tractors :)

    When we bought the land we celebrated with Champagne...well the 'Champagne of Beers(Miller High Life) :haha:

    Hmmm, nothing wrong with a brewskie or twoskie but, I think Muscadine wine ought be be voted the national drink of the Homestead nation. I don't know what words for the toast though.


    Congrats Oz and Mrs. Oz

    I guess Toilet Water should be used to christen the septic and "Down the Hatch" should be the toast!
