We joke its only good for one thing not hooked up........
Thats misspelled, it should be Lobstah Cookah.
Nice, where in Maine?
You are right..! I am out in Freeport Durham area.....
Looks Good! Wish I were that far.
Alergic to Lobstah but a good fish boil would work for me ;-)
Are you going with a horizontal chimney?
Yup, I should have it all together by weeks end...... I will post up photos as it goes....
It's ovah... Cramah...lobstah...
Looking good!! All new construction,too. It's gonna be a sweet set-up when you're done. So, what are you going with for a chimney? All stainless?
Looking good, we need loads of pics ... not really enough about these units, even on the web! When I find my wee place in the USA I'd be so tempted to have one of these.
Oh, um, I see that I had a brain cramp. It says H O R I Z O N T O L. Sorry. Dumb question.
Looks good. Are you going to install gypsum board around it?
Stack straight out the back.........
Yes fire code 1 hour board around the entire garn room then filled with vermiculite SP
As soon as something else happens i promise to post photos.
And so it begins......
Looking good, wish I were that far! Tomorrow I will saw the lumber for the Garn enclosure. Parts will be ordered shortly. Maybe by watching you and Jim I will avoid a few mistakes. Thanks for posting.
Tat - looks like you have a good start. But I have to ask - is that teflon tape on the pipe joints? I strongly suggest going with a liquid sealant like Rectorseal 5 or Blue Blocker (both available at Lowes/HD). Teflon tape can tear in the threads as you tighten, and can leave areas of thread without sealant. It may not be an issue, but it's a hell of a thing to find out later with hundreds of gallons in the tank if it is an issue.
Keep the pics coming. I added more to my site: http://www.pennbrookfarm.com/GARN/GARN6.html
My Garn Barn is almost done, but I still don't have the GARN connected to the HX yet. Very frustrating getting parts & fittings for 1.25 Wirsbo.
Thanks I am going to ask him about that tomorrow......
Your's looks great, where did you get the elec. elements they sent mine through with the set up for them..?
Aha, I guess you have a plumber doing the install? I am doing mine. Some plumbers do not like the liquid stuff because it is messy. As long as the plumber stands behind his work if there are leaks, I guess he is free to use whatever sealant he chooses.
The electric elements are from my local plumbing supply house, but you can get them anywhere. I got 4.5kw elements, not the 5.5kw elements that Dectra sells. Mine are Ruud brand, copper element. Be sure to use some lubricant like dielectric grease on the O-rings. It will help keep them from distorting when you tighten them. I learned that the hard way.
I forgot to mention it on my web page, but the enclosure obviously did not come with the holes. I laid out the 9x9 grid and cut them with a hole saw.
Phase one done.....
Now the boiler end in the house, then the barn
WOW Things are really moving now. Looks great
