Thanks, E-Kat. I've enjoyed the pics you've posted of your place too. It's similar to what we've dreamed of creating - the house, gardens, outbuildings, and workshop all inspire.

Reilly,
Is that a attic fan bollard you are belayed to?

One time we were putting a fancy copper chimney cap on an old chimney. I had to rteach one of the guys to belay so I could go up there. ;-)

In a perverse way, I love my old house.

Pulling off some original plank sheathing today (one of the pieces measured 16 feet and 30" wide), I found this scrap of the primitive 'vapor barrier', newsprint from the venerable Hoard's Dairyman.

A friend who attended one of my drum making classes dropped by last week with a fresh deer hide. I spent an hour or two scraping fat and membrane off the inside, much to my dogs delight, and then placed it in a vat of water with garden lime. Yesterday the skin was sufficiently swollen for de-hairing.

I now have to neutralize the ph, rinse, and stretch it on a frame to make rawhide for Native American style hand drums. I just recently shipped out three drums, and have two more for sale on etsy.

Woo Hoo! New job!

No more piecing work together, not knowing what's next. I helped out a contractor I've known for near on twenty years on Tuesday. I was back helping him out today and was offered a job. Payroll, no 1099 like I'm used to. A few bucks less per hour, but job security is such a breath of fresh air.

The only downside? I'll be plowing snow this winter when we get it. I sold my trucks plow last year because I'm not a huge fan of it. Oh well, I'll take the bad with the good.

I accepted the offer with a caveat, I can and will still take on my own projects when they come my way.

Psyched.

What's the source for the radiant? I see forced hot air in the floor so I'm assuming propane/oil heat and radiant fed by the domestic hot water? If you say geo we should talk.

Geo is just the best way to go with any heating/cooling system. The cost of the retrofit is high but it will usually pay off in savings within seven years(less in colder climates). Add to that the fact that the 30% tax right off until the end of 2016 and the systems make more and more sense to me.

Are you running any mixing valves off the domestic hot side?
