Projected Projects Project
Well, nature bats last. We had some flashfloods last week---over a foot of rain. It channeled down the trench for the power, and filled the future laundry room with some very rich soil. It's not too bad really and my tenants are going to dig it out and use the soil elsewhere.
It's a reminder that winter is coming. This project will get backburnered a bit while I take care of some pre-winter projects----gathering firewood is one. The other is the generator project.
AnnaMarie's cottage was built to accept a small generator as backup power. We get power outtages all the time--hot weather, windy weather, snow. I finally found the generator I wanted---5,000 watts continuous, CARB compliant, electric start, dual fuel, 240v. I'm plumbing it to the house propane cylinder which, if full, will provide about three weeks worth of fuel. That should get us through anything. I want it easy enough that if I'm gone AnnaMarie can just turn a key and flip a switch. It was more complicated than I thought---geting the correct inlet pressure through the correct size pipes and all.
Been hanging around my 'starter wife' since 1987; 3 kids together so I'm hoping she'll keep me...Copter rescue medic , hazardous materials response stuff, and Urban Search And Rescue and USFS helicopter manager stuff. Also build houses. Mostly just a dad
