Our next project on the off grid homestead is building a concrete block well house for our new deep well. I threw together a 6’x6′ design using Sketchup. Since I already have a lot of concrete block on hand hopefully this project won’t cost much. This is part 1 of the series and we start by leveling the grade, then digging and pouring a reinforced footer.

Guildbrook Farm is an off grid, modern homestead located in the foothills of Appalachia. We take you along on our journey to become more self reliant by growing an organic garden, raising heritage breed chickens and pigs, improve our skills in canning and food preservation, building off the grid renewable energy systems, prepping for events such as natural disasters, and learning old time skills. Join us as we build an off-grid cabin and homestead from raw land while remaining debt-free. Follow our successes and failures as we learn to live a more simple, sustainable lifestyle.
Thanks for watching!
