Pump House Build

Go Back

Needing permanent structure for our generator and shallow well electric pump, we used the 100 year old Fir beams our friend Sean Doyle donated for the main structure. The siding was created with free 2x6’s collected from a business in St. Paul,MN. Tin roofing from J&J Metals in WI.  Windows and other materials from our “obtanium” pile. AKA the “boneyard”.   
    Solar gain through the windows and the well ventilated generator keep the pump house warm even on the coldest days. The sliding window adorning the front of the pump house designed by David Welder. Spending only $50, we spent more on screws than anything else. ​
