Second fire downstairs, had to remove a relatively large bird from the chimney. Alive and well, so recent entrant. Too large to fly back up, i pulled the new cap off the bottom. But apparently small enough to fit between the chimney cap louvers. Also a bit of a puddle on that bottom cap. So perhaps there’s a top cap issue. Looked good from the ground in the dark.

First of new shelving up. I have two more legs that length, and a bunch half that.
I don’t think they’re heavy duty enough for full barrels on top.

I think I want to tuck the fuel oil tank between the heater tank and furnace. It fits between the legs. Dealing with full totes at a time instead of barrels seems better. Reducing floor footprint of stored fuel seems worth some effort.

Diesel fueling station nearly done. 25gpm clearwater pump is a little aggressive. Took a bath priming it. Had second filter drain open to bleed and I was too slow when it caught. Have two drips. Took them apart once already to add a few more tape layers. Need a hook for the nozzle. Maybe need a support for the filter stack.

Pics later. Phone had gone dead. 
6.8 gallons filled the mower.

First fire in the wood stove tonight. Takes a bit to get a draught going through that big ass chimney. Smoked the fire out the first attempt by closing the door too soon.

 Realized there are NO hvac vents in the basement at all. Things to adjust when redoing the ceiling, I guess. I was going to make sure cold air returns were open to spread the heat through the house.

Silliness.

I keep fixing that silliness – like this is a forever house or something. The next folk will really have everything tweaked exactly how I wanted it. Remote temperature sensor for the main thermostat connected too. Need to figure a permanent spot and run a wire. Shame the wireless sensor wasn’t as easy as expected. Damn complicated model range.

There were three of those left at the store, keith took the third. Either they were not picked up (like the box van - it sold for $1200 but buyer couldn’t get a known-bad brake line replaced, so forfeit purchase and left it) or held back from auction for store tear down.

There’s one other maybe good to someone item, a probably 200 gallon heat recovery tank. Water in/out for domestic hot water or hydronic heat and an exchanger loop from hydronic heat or refrigeration return respectively.

It had been in use recovering heat from coolers for a warming loop.

Exactly what i want to loop engine coolant through for domestic hot water in joe, but at least 4x too big.
