Gulf Island Building.


The first major project this morning was replacing the old pipe from the wood stove in the cabin. Yesterday I sanded it in order to paint it, but when I hit it with the sander a chunk broke out of the bottom.

It's a bit of a battle doing this by yourself as you need to be able to raise the entire pipe assembly, and that's heavy. So I went up on the roof and removed the cap and double wall pipe, then back inside to lift the now lightened pipe assembly.

Of course it only goes so far before something hits something else, and that made it necessary for me to move the stove ahead to gain some space. That didn't quite work, so then I had to remove the 2" thick concrete tiles under the stove.

OK, got that done and then reversed the procedure. Have you ever tried lifting a wood stove and moving a concrete tile back under it with your toes? Not fun.

Here's what came out.

Most of that pipe damage was caused by me beating the daylights out of the bottom of the pipe to remove it.

You see, the original cap had worn out and it was leaking probably for the past year or two. I haven't used that stove for some time. So there was surface rust everywhere.

Nice new one in place now. And I painted the stove but forgot to take a pic. Manana.

We had some sun today Jim, so here's an end shot of your table. Looks better in this light.

Quick pic of the freshly painted wood stove. Looks like it needs a second coat.

Jheeeezh!

For a guy that is living on an island you always seem to be able to come up with parts and products needed to do any random job. Hell I would spend all of my time on the boat going to the hardware store.

And the helluvit is I know that black paint was high heat stove paint. I'm sure it was. Now who keeps that stuff on hand for an emergency?

Well, I do actually. Two cans of it here fortunately!

And if the top double wall stainless pipe had needed replacement, I even have an extra one of those!

You must buy supplies like I buy plumbing parts, a bunch at a time. There is nothing more irritating than to start a job and not have all the parts, I have a huge bucket of plumbing parts just waiting for the next job.

Keith, the table looks great, it does have character, beautiful. Thanks for sharing the photos of the beautiful flowers, they are fantastic.

Yow I figured as much!
I have a two car garage that you can't even see the floor. I'm not at all a hoarder either. All of the crap, er-ah-a parts and supplies I hang on to are ALL GOOD STUFF. I save ALL GOOD STUFF. That includes what I have stored in the barn and the chicken coupe.

On the long list of things to do before tomorrow, is evacuating the water between the two pond liners, and then filling the pond as best I can. Somehow, the top liner had pulled away from one side (likely by the otters) and several of the bricks that keep the liners in place had slid into the pond.

I think that's under control and the pump is working as we speak to get the water back onto the top liner. As soon as that is finished I will move more water from the big cistern behind the house into the pond. Then that cistern needs some attention. It never ends.

Today was the day of the viewing..or so I hope. The realtor will let me know any feedback as soon as he hears anything.

So after a truly hectic three weeks plus what with moving down from the interior and having to do the necessary work at the house I must get on with the new work schedule for tomorrow.

1. Get up when ever the mood strikes me.
2. Have a coffee. Sit in the sun and drink that. After today's *&^%$#@! weather it better be nice tomorrow!
3. Make something for brunch, because by then it will be way past breakfast time.
4. Think about what I could do in the afternoon. This is strictly a thinking deal here, no actual doing of anything.
5. Aim the chair towards the sun.
6. Check on the suntan.
7. Maybe an afternoon snack of nice fresh fruit that I picked up this afternoon.
8. Re-aim the chair...can't miss out on that good vitamin D.
9. That's it. Done for the day.
10. Well, OK then, maybe aim the chair one more time. But that's it, done, finito, the end, time to take it easy for the rest of the day.

Sounds about like the other day out in my shop, Judy asked, "what ya doing", I said "nothing", she said, "you were doing that yesterday", I said, "yow, I know, but I didn't finish." LOL

Buddy, you deserve a good rest after all you have been through, good on ya.
