We just got some bad news about the dam. We got the quote via email and wow! someone must have told the guy we were made of money! It is way too much. Greenman is feeling sick. At this cost, it’s a real blow to our plans; we need water storage from which to irrigate. I suggest that maybe a dam half the size would cost half as much and that maybe if we told the contractor what our budget was he could do something within it. Of course, a tank is always an option but not nearly so aesthetic. But that alternative isn’t cheap either. We decide to have the conversation about the budget and await the reply.
