Today, in addition to the requisite shot of whatever boat decided to visit this morning, I’ll give you a better image of one of the lilac hedges (wet because it’s raining), and a couple of photos of my largest crop. I wish I could figure out a way to monetize them.
I’m told that not only will I be able to see whales & seals & harbour porpoises, but also huge leaping tuna offshore. Cool!
So just after I posted yesterday I got a call that the Electricians were about to arrive. Yay!
It’s only 10 months late but the insurance company needs a letter that says my house is up to code. Also I needed the panel switched from fuses to breakers. To take advantage of them being here anyway I had them add a generator panel … just in case I decide to get one. They also installed a plug for it on the outside wall.
I did a bit of research while they were messing about downstairs and found an option that not only starts with a push button but also remotely. From inside the house. While the blizzard is blowing outside.
If I invest in a generator it’ll be that one.
The day went very much like this:
- Electrician: We’re removing a lot of these power boxes. Do you want them?
- Me: No!
- Electrician: Will you ever be hooking that oil furnace up again?
- Me: Hell no!
- Electrician: I hit my head on that hanging baseboard heater. Do you want them taken down?
- Me: Oh please!
In the space of 5 days I’ve gotten the major portion of the plumbing project done and now the wiring. I’m feeling very positive about things.
This afternoon the guy from the power company is coming to assess the house from an insulation/power smart point of view.
Once he makes his recommendations we can undertake Project Insulation. Then he comes back, reassesses the house, takes away the receipts, and the power company sends me money I can put towards the roof.
Now if I could just get the lawn mowed. 🙂
