Janne called over the weekend. He was asked to help a couple of neighbors have a well drilled so he had the driller visit our land to give me a quote for doing ours, too.
This is the sort of thing I hoped we could do, as we could share the transport costs of the drill among three households rather than my paying for that all myself. It's a win all around for me, my new neighbors, and the drilling man... all thanks to Janne.
The cost I was quoted is within my budget- hooray! It's a flat cost up to 40 meters and then so much per meter extra. Janne's well is 60 meters, but another house he's working on is 11 meters. I would be willing to bet we'll be 40 or maybe a little more. The drilling should take place next week, so I'll report back.
