Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch"


Being pressed for time decided to use sprayer to paint molding. Boy this so much easier, except for bugs that suddenly decide to land on wet work. I painted five 8' base and eight 8' door casing in an hour including set up and clean up. I wish I had used it to paint table legs.

Spent this past Wednesday getting generator set in place for electrician today.

Took most of this morning and afternoon for us to get the electrical all ran. Now the long wait for the propane company to come out.

Elected to run both electrical and propane "above" ground after thee septic drain line was hit in same area when propane was first put in. Thus the support.

Will need to place more gravel on the exhaust side of unit.

Can't seem to get an answer from propane company on the line, what material and does it have to be buried. I am just fearful they will hit the septic line again! I have a heavy pipe rod maybe line can be located that way?

Propane company came out today, everything they can do involves trenching so on to the black pipe. Will need to find the appropriate paint for it.

Also, worked on getting the downspouts drained under the retaining wall and future over sidewalk. Will post a picture of this tomorrow.

As promised pictures of drain. I excavated enough to replace with topsoil to grade. I have one little hump too remove.

I dug a trench underneath the pipe and compacted #53 some here. May have been overkill, but don't want any issues.

The entire drain will be underground once I have upper retaining wall in place.

On to the propane and painting.

Resuming trench for retaining wall, very difficult since out had been so dry. Soaking then digging...

This gas line is giving me the flux. I keep forgetting the Golden Rule. Do plumbing BEFORE electrical.

Ordered more block today so I can resume with the wall next week.

Generator installation complete! Just a few minor things like painting the gas line and gravel at exhaust end, to do.

I should have known... Painting the babies room I thought would be easy. Why is the carpet all the way under the drywall?

Those blocks sure look nice. I like the way they lock together. What do they cost each? I'm doing a wall right now too. Keep up the great work. dorf dude...
