comment How can I ensure portable generator success during a long natural disaster?
This does not answer the question, "How can I ensure portable generator success during a long natural disaster?" If you are suggesting specific alternatives, then please add them to your answer. Otherwise this is little more than a comment. It doesn't answer the question.

comment How do I get acceptable water pressure when using two faucets on my 1/2" water main?
@Ecnerwal Correct. It would provide about 12 gallons for a shower, most of which would be replaced during the shower. This should be sufficient for a small house with a single shower, providing temporary pressure for occasional faucet use during the shower, or multiple simultaneous faucets without the shower.

Are the house and the pump house at the same level, or is there a slope between the two?

comment What can I use as a bowl for a DIY fire bowl/pit?
This would be fine with tractor rims that detach from the hub, but most vehicle rims are welded or otherwise non-detachable from the hub. It would be a lot of work to use a car tire rim...

comment Why would two circuit breakers be connected inside the service panel?
If it is a 3 phase panel (and with at least 17 rows, it might be - it's a big panel either way) then it's on the same phase. Personally I'd like it if my garage had a 3 phase panel, wouldn't you?
