Long Time, No Post

November 21, 2011

Although we successfully filled the system with glycol/water, purged the air, and turned on the thermostat (35 degrees inside the house), there is an issue with the on-demand boiler that is holding us up. I will be one happy lady when the heat is finally on. Our concrete floor is doing a great job of maintaining a single temperature; unfortunately, that temperature is sub-zero.

In other news, we finally got a driveway:

We shaped and filled the curve above our windows:

Finished product
