4494My house in the Lithuanian village
- Feb 9, 2013Hi Franz and all,
I signed an agreement to purchase this house in the village of Eiciunai,
in the Lithuanian countryside:
Here it is in Google Streetfinder:
I will live here in Fall and Winter, and live in Englewood, Chicago in
Spring and Summer.
So I'm asking myself "global village" questions, especially about how to
renovate the house. Currently, there is no indoor toilet. A typical
solution is to put in a cesspool tank for about 500 euros. When the tank
fills up, you call a truck to have it drained. The problem is that you
have to be very thrifty about using water so that as little as possible
goes into the tank.
Another solution is to clean the water yourself. I'm curious what
systems we know about that I should consider. Here in the neighboring
city of Alytus there is a business that makes such systems:
So I will be asking this and other questions. I appreciate our help!
P.S. Greetings from Nuremburg, Bavaria, Germany! I'm on a road trip
with my father to visit the towns where he grew up as a boy in
Lithuanian refugee camps after World War II: Scheinfeld, Weissenberg
and Swaebische Gmeund.
