The very first thing we did was lay out the markers for the road. This was done by our surveyor Josh Cabio from I-Sukod. We then got heavy equipment in and cut out where the road was going then put in the gravel bed consisting of several different layers of gravel. While the heavy equipment was on site, we had them excavate where our future water reservoir and pump house would be going.
We then contracted to have a well dug by Ric Rose Drilling. Using a circa 1950 rig (considered modern here in Negros Oriental), he went down to approximately 450 feet. Casement, pump, piping and electrical supply lines were installed and the well capped off until the reservoir and pump house are completed.
While the well was being dug, our own workers built a large storage shed and wood-shop which we will use for the ongoing construction of the planned 20-25 homes we intend to build in this community.
Currently we are trenching the site in order to lay out the underground water supply system and power supply.
