Wood Burning

Wood Burner    We only heat our home with a wood burning stove. I love the independence it affords and the cheaper electric bills. It is a lot more physical work than just turning up the thermostat, but physical work provides exercise and satisfaction from a job well-done. This will be the fourth year of heating this way, and every year around this time we start to wonder how much longer we’ll be burning. I thought this would be a great place to keep record of that.

This has been a particularly harsh winter. We’ve gone through most of our firewood so this summer will be spent harvesting a new supply. Just this week it looks like the weather is going to finally warm up a little. Up until now we’ve only had a handful of days above 60 degrees so we’ve still been burning all day & night. It looks like most of this week we’ll be able to just burn for a short time each day to knock off the chill, but the sun and warm temperatures should warm the house during the day. Praise God!

Master Bathtub Drain

Dad and I finally put the master bathtub drain in.  It turned out to be an easy job.  I cut out the plastic sheet and 2″ blue board. Then I had to take out 10 gallons of pea gravel to expose the pipe.  We then installed the trap and glued it all together. Next, I plan to hook this up to the tub.
