Self Sufficient Culture. Mark , Oct 18, Good advice Mark. Short story Years ago I owned a house on the North side of Brisbane and needed to put up a fence.
I was keen to have a go until I did some test digging a noticed the whole area was on a massive rock garden. I hired a fence guy who ended up ripping himself off as he spent weeks digging the post holes with a long crowbar.
He was the most unorganised tradesman I have come across and I think he was new to the job. One day during the job he knocked on my door and asked to borrow a hammer! He said he had a run-in with his work-mate his brother and he took his only hammer with him, and the work ute.

He had to catch a cab to finish off the rest of the job. He ended up doing an awesome job but I felt sorry for him as it would have cost him a lot more than he got paid.
My other post-hole story My grandfather aged in his 80's dug a well in his backyard with post hole digger and a heap of water pipe screwed on to it. Took him many weeks from memory but it worked.
What a trooper his was. Steve , Oct 19, That's one silly tradie but at least he did a good job Your Grandfather digging a well in his 80's is pretty awesome!
Coincidentally, I accidentally ran across a clip on YouTube about a guy hand digging his own well in a similar way you described. I've heard it can cost thousands to get it dug professionally so DIY sounds like a great option if you have the know how.
