This evening there is a meeting taking place that will hopefully give us a definitive answer as to whether we can move forward with the purchase of our dream home.
As it stands, the current property lines are such that when the new septic system is installed, it would take up pretty much all of the usable space in the backyard...leaving no place for my gardens, or the dog run, or the chicken coop, or place for the kids to run. Based on the type of soil on the property, the lines coming out from the tanks have to be above-ground -- for those of you in the know, it would be a 'mound' system.
Without going into detail, we pray that it will be clear how we should proceed.
Will post again when we get the word!
