We had a productive weekend. I made use of this guy and did some grading, and cleared out my front yard of rocks.
Then we built this...
just met with the contractors. As I expected, they are trying to get me to cover their mistake of not quoting the sidewalk.
I think we are just...
can you put sticks in the wax bins?
yesterday was an ok day for solar production :)
Living room space
from the other view:
once we take down the tarps and it dries out a bit (hopefully this afternoon) I will be able to get in there and get some pictures of it all set...
It came down to space. Also, the solar is connected to our house, so the electric bill is all the apt.
i have never burned a piece of oak in my stove.
but I did reload this morning with a few elm pieces, some willow, and some aspen. When I left...
i really like that. I need to build one :)
all of the solar panels are up.
concrete stoop is poured, and currently being protected from the rain.
1.83kWh yesterday on the new panels for 2 hours
1.8kWh yesterday on the old system too (for the whole day)
i just put 21 panels on the roof of the new garage. It would be functioning, but it is currently raining. i can't wait to see what my bill is!
i am sitting on roughly 10 cord of cut/split/stacked, and roughly 5 more that need to be processed. We are about 6 years ahead at our current...
can you tell me more about these sticks? do you have pictures? How do you know if they will burn.
i know. we went from having a bunn industrial to a keurig. I actually stopped drinking as much coffee because of it.
always the whole bean.... i have the ground stuff at work since we have a keurig and I refuse to use the pods.
tankless electric. it was the same unit i previously had, and it is really tiny and does the trick. It uses a bit of power (60amp breaker), but it...
i did find myself turning on the gas furnace a bit more this year instead of doing cold starts. I burned about 4 cord last year, burning 24/7.
we are heating around 1900 sq ft, in a poorly insulated house. In fact, for the coldest months of the year, we had no insulation, with the winds...
the first thing i said to my wife was "i bet you that gets really slippery when its wet"
I am leaning towards the gravel path idea as well.
we burned just about 3 cord. We burned roughly 14/7, but we also did a lot more cold starts than we did last year when we were 24/7.
i was trying...
i thought about that as well. I think it might look cool for something temporary, but I would be interested to see what it did over the next few...
We have some power!
Rough inspections passed on the solar panels, the electrical final passed for the garage. They were out there...
Thompson Water Sealer
I never would have thought my wife would suggest this, but she came across this idea and wanted me to build this to the front entrance of our...
I buy my coffee from Dunkin Donuts and have a french press :)
well, more exciting news! Solar going in!
The water heater that I was reusing decided it was not going to actually engage the heaters....
had a nice fire last night. today it is 44º. I'll probably reload when I get home.
apparently they came this morning to turn the power on... hoooray! Of course they told me they were going to come later in the week, so I planned...
we are possibly going to get up to 16" of snow today, so we will see. nothing yet, but we will have a fire tonight for sure.
the corrugated metal came in sheets 40" x 8'. I will get you the specs on it. We got it from the same guys that did our roof, they sourced...
