Water Heater & Rain

It’s been a busy week or so with very little progress to show for it. I spent most of last week prepping the things outside for the looming rain forecast here in western Oregon. We knew the summer like weather would end sometime… I just wanted a few more weeks ;).

We did pick up a hot water heater … Now I need to bone up on plumbing to get it installed. I am hoping for progress this week.

  1. We haven’t gotten much done lately either – other than getting ready for the rain. Currently trying to learn about wiring the yurt so we can get that done. Any advice on that piece would be greatly appreciated!

    • Well, how do you plan to get electricity to the yurt? Does it already exist on the property? We simply had to have a friend (electrical guy) split a 60amp feed off the main that already existed on the property. … We had the work inspected (by land owner request) … Which ran into “entanglements”.

      I am not sure what you would do about a new electrical line having to be ran to the property… That could get messy. I would start by finding someone whom you trust to get that main box done… The internal stuff isn’t difficult … I have no experience and I seem to understand it now lol.


      • Glad to hear the inside stuff isn’t too bad – that’s what we are getting ready to attempt. I thought I had enough of an idea to start, but then we walked into Home Depot. There were a million choices for single switch boxes!

        We have solar so our power will be coming from a closet full of batteries.

        Thanks! 🙂
