I built this for our 20th anniversary, my wife has wanted one for awhile. So while she was away, I got busy, This is built from scratch from the ground up. It stands just over 8 ft tall, and is about 5 ft to the outer most points. The base is made out of green 2×4’s cut to about 12 in each and laid flat. The top was a little more difficult and as I have not seen to many round top wells, I decided to give it a try. The top is also made out of green 2×4’s with cedar shingles. All I can say is Im glad I went with a six sided roof over a 2 sided, it looks awsome. I am currently working out detailed plans that I will post for free.

How deep is the well? I hope the city didn’t mind you tapping in the the city water line. Now your neighbors will have to come to get water from you. By the way , how long was your wife away? It would have taking me about 3 months to build that. Anyway, beautiful sentiment and design. I know she is proud of it. ( you should put an aquarium in the bottom and a wishing well sign towards your neighbors, might pick up some change )
