Well it does not matter now. We moved from the Tiny House, back into the Big Timber Framed house, so today I did some rearranging, and brought my generator over here. (The two houses are directly across the road from one another). I had a duck house I built, so I grabbed that, then grabbed my generator and shoved it inside the duck house so now my Generator is inside a building. This is a 20 KW generator so it can power two houses. I hardwired it into my main box, drove a ground rod, and an hour after I started, I am now ready for any power outage.
Just a quick update... the pond is holding water fairly well at the moment. After a bunch of rain we have entered a week of dry weather. I'm marking the edge of the water each day starting this morning to see how it does.
From what I can tell the pond is working a lot better than last year but the new material I added to the dam is still settling out. Plus there were some critter holes that are slowly collapsing. I have helped this process along a bit and it seems to help.
I think it may hold water better as the fall/winter continues. But so far I'm happy with it and with the improvements I made to the dam I can easily walk along the top of it which is fun!
