Plumbing going in

leave a comment »

Rough in plumbing was going in this past week.   Hooking up the well pump to a pressurized tank that feeds the system as well as installing the water heater.  Both in the utility room now.   A lot of the work is for the venting of the house which seems to be a requirement now of the building code.   A great system allowing you to move the air through your house and bring in outside air by mechanical means.   Guess they have never heard of windows !   Most people seem to shut it off in the summer as all it does is bring in hot humid summer air and replace the nice cool air inside forcing people to have cooling systems.   With a strawbale house kind of silly seeing how many are built in desert areas without a cooling system thanks to the insulation.

 

Hot water tank and pressurized tank on shelf. Well water goes directly to the pressurized tank. Hot water tank is propane heated

Part of the venting system to circulate the air inside the house.

Shower walls going in and faucet hooked up.

Beat after a day of working and hoping someone brings some food over

Ready for the cedar siding. Vents in attic space cut out. Beautiful fall day

Clutter of the west porch where i spent most of the time relaxing. Need to find an outdoor sofa, table and better chairs though. And a hammock !
