Good info about wells and pumps. Book even includes detailed plans for how to build your own outhouse, if that's what you want to do.

What you need to know BEFORE buying that "perfect" little cottage, or living year-round, out of the city or off the grid. Definitely read and study this BEFORE getting a city permit for that cottage out back.
