We have been putting off the big expense of the sewer line and grinder pump installation and the not so big expense of the main water line.  Now, we are at the point that we can not wait any longer. Called to place the order for the installation.  They (they being the county planning and zoning department) required us to pay for the water meter before they would issue a building permit so the meter has been paid for since January, 2007 and in place since last year sometime. Then, we are responsible for running the water line from the meter to the house.  I didn’t want to have to run the heat through the winter so we have been waiting to put the main water line in and always planned on doing it with the sewer line -- saving the cost of a second company to come out and run the line.  So, the sewer company that we are required to use (which still bugs me, I'm certain I could get it done for less) is working on the cost figures for the main water line (around $800 and its over 800 feet long, I just hope we have good water pressure) the sewer hook up (with 'Y' for future expansion to main house) and grinder pump (this is required due to the small private sewer plant we are hooked to).  I'll get the bill next week, which has to be paid before they do the work. I'm estimating it to be around $6,000. Any more and we'll be waiting again.  After the bill is paid they said they could complete the work within 14 days. We're making progress again.
