I am normally not on the spot for a blog entry, but lately I have been busy. As a Handyman, and also cheap, I do most of our required and ‘I want’ tasks myself. This week it has been preparing for a driveway repair (culvert pipe replacement). The culvert is at Shirl’s house and she has done most of the leg work. I have also been busy installing a hot water heater.
(storage building at our homeport)
When we set up this last house as our home base. We installed a Motor home port and carport. Then we combined a storage shed with an additional 280 sqft of storage area. I decided then to run water and electric to it and install a normal size washer and dryer. I did not add the hot water. I felt it was time so I have rewired and installed a hot water heater.
(from 2012 when the storage was built)
Since all my projects seem to grow, it is now laid out for later additions of shower, commode, vanity, closet and kitchenette. That is enough for Sherry and I to retire in, if necessary. We can live in 280 sqft and our care givers can live in the 1600 sq ft house here on the property..
(I installed the water heater under the drafting table, Sure, you know I keep the drafting table, I might build again )
(The black pipe lead into the storage room where the drafting table is.)
Before I forget, Bonnie, who did a wonderful job of proofing my last book has decided to enter the blogging world. I think you will find something of interest there, She resides at :
It is good to see someone blogging when many folk are headed for FB. Good luck Bonnie.
In closing this entry, I must show this rose, given to Sherry by Don and Evelyn from their rose garden, it was like velvet and very beautiful.
Thanks for reading this scattered entry. I am one whipped puppy. Sooooooo
I really do love to work. I have enjoyed the installation of the HW heater, except, it was under the drafting table and it is honestly getting hard to get up and down. I cannot believe I am 75!
