I plan on putting a dual lamp outside shower. To me it was cool "in" the shower. When you stepped out of the water stream. Seems like steam unit would always have to be on? Well maybe with a steam shower door it may warm up compared to standard door?

Now that Spring is around the corner it's time to list projects for this year.

1. Finish retaining wall
2. Build support for heat pump that is attached to the house (see #3)
3. Increase water pipe size through foundation wall, fixing leak in process. Pipe entrance is under current support for heat pump. Driest period of year late July.
4. Over seed lawn
5. Till under fence row and plant wildflower seeds.
6. Install automatic transfer switch
7. Install manual transfer switch and outdoor connection. Second generator is "way" down the line...
8. Buck all the downed trees (June)
9. Rough plumbing work for master bath, close up walls

That's at least 9+ Wednesdays accounted for!

Up to the 6th and final course on retaining wall. Will finish most of the backfill tomorrow. Will top off with soil that will be trucked in this week.

Picture at 5th course complete.

Application of "Geo-Grid" before sixth course

Will need to rent a brick saw to cut top caps along with topsoil placement.

Been a while since I worked indoors. Spent today removing some "boxed-in" plumbing that was done previously. See post #142 for reference as to how it looked.

I decided not to remove all the insulation in the attic and bring the portion in our pantry above the ceiling. So we are stuck with the vent pipe there. Next I have to remove the 15A circuit and reroute it.

We had the transfer switch installed today! One more step to go! This will require some thought. Given the fact that the sewer line was hit by the propane installers with a trencher I am trying to keep all the lines above ground. I am thinking there isn't a reason power inside conduit cannot be above ground as well as solid gas line (iron).

Began fabrication of dining table, have to rip top in two directions. Completed test cut for one of the short cuts, will do both end cuts tomorrow.

Feeling a little uneasy about the long rip...

Finished caps on retaining wall, ready to order soil.

I keep having issues uploading from phone. Will close in after soil is placed (on right). Once I have the other side done will place #53 stone and complete paver walkway down to door.

The mound of soil in front and to the right has to be removed, probably tomorrow so to be pitched away for drainage.

End assemblies complete the more difficult task of attaching to long aprons tonight. I don't have clamps this long so will be trying the ones that use black iron pipe...

Use of pipe clamps turned out to be difficult (heavy) so needed some help from wife
