Gulf Island Building.


I have replaced it with a plastic one and then installed 2 more ( one for input the other output). That way I can shut the water off to the pump and filter and empty those lines so I don't have to worry about freezing ever again....woohooo.

I can't remember if I put another stainless steel valve at the wellhead or not, but I do know that all the lines which feed off the main line from the well have plastic valves on. As far as I know, none of them have blown up. I got mine from the House of Pot.

More small stuff done today.

The divorce hole is getting covered with mocha painted plywood to tidy it up before the posts go in.

First post in was the corner post. Don't know why, but it refused to go in straight. I ended up enlarging the bolt holes just a tad so it could be tweaked a bit.

The next two posts should have been dead easy to install...but it seems that all the posts want to cause trouble today. I think part of the problem is that the lag screws I'm using are 1/2" by 6". That's a pretty skookum chunk of steel. I would use smaller, but there aren't any here that would do the job.

I also think that the wood I'm drilling out for the screws has become hardened since I cut it and installed it several years ago. One thing is for sure, the posts aren't going anywhere.

On the other side of the hole, there are two sections of the ceiling as yet not covered with cedar. Before the mocha plywood can be installed on that side, the ceiling needs to be done. It seems there's always some little thing to disrupt the proceedings today.

The round table in the solarium got treated to the lauan plywood top today, along with the bits just above it. No more spruce plywood to look at!

I got asked a question about the iris pic above as to how the "shadow" appeared around the flower.

That's not natural of course, but when I took the pic it was fairly late in the evening and the light was just about gone.

In the process of fixing the photo for publication I was doing the adjusting in iPhoto, and I think it was probably the "highlights" button that brought that artifact out. I don't think that would happen with a decent daylight pic.

There has been a hole between the kitchen and bathroom floors forever it seems. Great dirt catcher!

I made up a piece of arbutus to fit and got that put in...plugged the countersunk holes and it has the first Varathane coat on now.
