THEN I can get to making some of the projects
Thanks man. Yeah its a cool project, perfect way to power a home shop.

I'm still looking for a grid tie UPC solution. Where your entire home has a 5 minute battery backup (basically a DIY powerwall) It stops things from tripping breakers and the like when there is a storm or gust that knocks out power for a few over and over again.

Thanks,

Workers are finally back at it after being halted for ~8 weeks. It will be so nice to have a kitchen sink again one day!

Countertop guy was here doing the templating today.

I have foundation contractors coming out on Monday to try to level the kitchen floor - I requested that be part of the reno, but the ball got dropped somewhere and I didn't recognize the floor wasn't leveled prior to them installing the new flooring. So, fingers crossed leveling the floor from the basement side doesn't cause too many issues with the brand new hardwoods.

Pics on Monday after they're done.

They never stopped here. They about put up a full house in the past 3 weeks right down the street from me... Amazing how quickly it went up.

I wish. We've been without a kitchen sink since 24 FEB.

Worked on the room for my pressure washer set up in my washbay. It was a pain getting the anchor lags into the wall.

Testing the bucket shelf.

And our stopping point. Both shelves in and the roof is on. We need to get some aluminum roofing like what is on the carport and some beadboard up. Then on to the doors. I also need to paint the inside before I set up the washer. I am hoping to have it close by next weekend.

I don't have the same pictures because I always forget to stop and take them when building, but made decent progress on my Mitre Saw Station. Just need to fasten the top and install the bench for the mitre saw, then work on drawers and a sliding fence.

Picture would help I suppose.

Its coming together nicely. I need to paint the inside, take my pressure washer setup apart and hopefully get it all plumbed this weekend.

I still need to get a roof on the washbay shed, and paint the exterior but I got it all set up this weekend.

That was Saturday, and I let it dry over night. Early Sunday my dad came over to help do some plumbing.

The bucket filler, and my water delivery system. :lol_hitti

I then installed a 2x6 to mount the reel to, and painted it and the plumbing while my dad shortened the electrical cord on my pressure washer.

Once all that dried, I moved everything into the shed.

Since I grabbed the wrong glue for the CPVC I had to wait 24 hours before running water through it. Rather than wash last night I drank beer and watched the race with my buddy while everything dried.

I woke up early this morning to wash and..... leaks. The piping was fine, it just leaked anywhere I had metal threads in pvc so I did some taping.

I taped up this fitting, but the hose itself leaked so I had to cut the end off and clamp a new end on.

Ok with that leak fixed, I turned the water back on and there was a leak on my bucket filler.

I taped that a little better, turned the water back on and let it sit for a few minutes. I didn't see any more leaks so I pulled the wagon in for a wash.

I have a better bucket filler hose coming from Obsessed Garage but this will work for now.

While washing I figured out the best spot for my wand holder and mounted it. It was so nice to not have to worry about the car drying while I did something else.

And the finished product. I am so excited about this. I really have to thank my dad for all the help planning and swinging a hammer. Up next, exterior paint, roofing, and hopefully lighting soon.
