I have lived in the same place for 11 1/2 years now, and have yet to build a well house.   Year after year, we battle frozen pipes, either under the house or at the well.  Two year’s ago we wrapped the well with insulation and a emergency blanket and a tarp, that wasn’t too bad, but we still had a few times it froze.   We had even spent $50.00, our very first year here and bought a well heat strip, it was supposed to keep the heat strip hot enough that the pipes won’t freeze.  It stopped working last year or the year before.    So today, I bought a canvas tarp since it is a little thicker than the plastic tarps, a heat lamp bulb and some outdoor duck tape.  I propped up several pallet’s, so that it has a tent effect and draped the canvas tarp over the pallets.  I will then put in a heat lamp and since the pallets will keep the tarp away from the light, should provide enough heat to keep it from freezing.

That should give me enough time to plan out and maybe build a proper well house.
