Today the line-sets went in, as well as the massive heat-pump.
The covers on the channels are a great sign. These are paintable, so we’ll be shopping for some grey paint come Spring. They put a vacuum on the line-sets and they are all sound, so they charged and primed the system.… Read the rest
Everything happens at once. Yesterday we took down a 75′ spruce tree, and today they started installing our ductless mini-splits.
Today, they installed the four head-units, the backer plates for the exterior channels, and the pad for the outdoor compressor. Tomorrow they install the line sets and hopefully the outdoor compressor.… Read the rest
My basement temperature and humidity sensor has been up and running for 2.5 years now with hardly a hiccup at all. But, it is time for an upgrade.

This thing was in the sky for about a month before things lines up enough for me to get a glimpse of it. Never could see it with my naked eye.
Most folks say binoculars are the sweet spot. Guess what I do not have.… Read the rest
I think, and I could very well be wrong, but I think I am done with the main structure for the fort.
The painter showed up bright and early this morning. She was sober this time, which was a plus. She stained the gangplank, then knocked out the unpainted half of the front wall, then got started on the light blue of the inside.… Read the rest
Or something like that. The hardware for the gangplank came in. As I was heading into The Big Orange Store, I spied that someone posted to Amazon that they used 2x10s for their ramps. Sold.
I managed to hit joist while trying to secure the gangplank to the deck.… Read the rest
