 If you have a mlne-barn take up the floor and put the well in. Hing the floor for easy opening.
I did this at a house use to own.

Call around to find the pipe and drive head, you can set up a pully and make a driver, and your all
set. get a hand pump that is easy to put on and take off, you will have to prime the pump every time
you hook it up.

I did this and no one knew I had the well, not even my wife.
I found out how to drive the well in a copy of Backwoodsman Magazine.
I will get the issue # tomarrow.
