Connecting The Dots - Water Pipe And Pump Installation

This day marks a huge milestone - for the very first day, since house was originally built in 1896 - house will have a fully automatic water supply. 

This day also marks the end of the planned major tasks for Summer 2016. Gosh, that was a mad ride - let me explain, in order to get water supply inside house, at start we had to drill a bore hole, see:Drilling Borehole , then we had to completely rebuild some walls for house and construct both pump room and bathroom. As it might sound straightforward, it involved a lot of planing, managing, constructing a of course money,

Now was the day we could connect the dots, and it started with an excavator arriving in our yard:
