first thing's first - scifi - i promised you a fishing trip so this one is for you! you will probably have to give the trout to pioneer preppy and sandy, but hey, you get to go fishing, right?
nice morning for it.....
really nice morning for fishing !!!
we are going to where the trout are going to go pre-spawning, just around that bend...
here is fat healthy female..
and a male - note the colours - in a month they will be intensified 10 fold! i can't keep trout past sept 01 so this was one of the last days (aug 17th)
total catch - 3 YUM! stephen, your turn is next, i went a couple more times before the month was out!!
and we are back - gorgeous morning - we went to the river to swim!!!
hey stephen - you asked - the water heater... here it is in a closet upstairs taking up a PILE of valuable floor space.. seriously - this needs to be moved so we can complete the reno of the 600 sq ft mansion!!!
it is going in the basement - first step, build a base - luckily i have the EXACT dimensions in a piece of scrap from someone's trash - 2 ' x 2 '...
i have a LOT of junk wood to fill in the gaps ..
all free of course..
i only used the nails on the left - they are ALL 2nd hand nails so the base cost exactly 0.00 dollars ;-))
where to put the base/water heater... mom, this one is for you!! i STILL have w. shakespeare!!!
ever since i can remember, we always had this cutout from an old tea crate and i have always loved it - i can remember this back 40 years - it is alive and kicking on the left.. on the right, some copy of a scottish stag that would be a great towel/hat rack keeps the extension cord off the floor - yo use what you can eh??
i trust that these talismans will make part 2 go well ;-))
seriously, i have had that thing 40 years !!!
on the other side - same thing...
the base is going here and the hose has to pass underneath.. closer to the wall..
leveling is always important...
this is a plumbing AND electrical job - so all the components are laid out and ready to go - i will fill you in on the details during the installation post - getting ready is 1/2 the battle!!!
oh yeah - here is some "existing plumbing"..
your guess is as good as mine...
valves that...uh..?? ...stuff ... and things...
whatever - lets enjoy the sunset...
and a double rainbow over vandura!!!
yes a double!!!
cheers all more to come on moving a water heater!!! scifi - i hope you enjoyed the fishing!
