Picking up microwave from stock at Henrietta Lowe’s today. Can’t stand no microwave any longer.

Other kitchen appliances ordered.

Anyone have the technology to thread black pipe? I have a gas leg in the right neighborhood already from an old garage heater. Just ned to cut it back and run it from center of house to exterior wall.

it probably wouldn't cost much extra to just replace whatever stick is too long and have all ready to thread together though. Need to locate stove exactly and actually measure and get the materials list together.

At least the stove isn't broken - that's just an upgrade. but I'll probably need an extra hand for everything but the microwave, so being ready to go will be good.

buy pre threaded pipe sections / nipples.  you should have a 4' flex line at least for pulling in and out for service above the floor.  and a shut off. 

threading black pipe best done with real tools most people dont have.  i did it for years.  not worth the investment or time.

I used to do it for stage work. It’s a bitch. That was 2” stuff, no joke. Will make this 3/4 or 1” whatever it is look easy

On layout, I’m thinking stub through the floor, then shutoff and flex, rather than shutoff in crawl space. Right?

1/4 done. Other three being delivered.




Dropped my level behind the stove while aligning the bottom bracket, and had to pull the stove out to retrieve. Looks like all I’ll need is the flex hose!



Makes for a short follow up trip. Flex hose, light fixture, getting there.

Under cabinet lights are on the way.

Any surprises about the house so far?   either glee or disappoint.

I have bird problems. They're in everything.

Need to dig out my roll of chicken wire and go to town.
They're above the insulation on the old side of the shop, they're in my attic due to some missing trim that I was only thinking of weather-tight when I saw and ignored, and they're in my drier vent. The one acceptable place they're in is the propane tank hatch for the shop.

Found drawings from 1984 of the standard configuration for this 1988 build. Confirmed the strong suspicion of modular, shows where the 4 pieces broke up (no surprises)

The water is a fun project as long as the sump pumps keep working. If they don't, that's a lil problem.
The disconnected battery backup is present, need to evaluate that.

Oil furnace doesn't light. Hydronic heater shows no water pressure though valves are open.
Shop needs new lower power and more effective lights.


LOVE the property.
Road noise isn't much of a bother.
Working in the shop office is everything I dreamed of.

Miss a sidewalk between shop and house, but from back door off the deck to the shop is a dry route even when it's soggy.

overwhelming in all regards to have this large an increase in space.
