Has it really been 31 days since my last blog? Wow, time flies when you are busier that a bee and struggling to keep your head above water.:)
First let me update you on my lovely bride! Theresa is healing really well. She is still have some stomach issues with vomiting about twice to three times a week and she is still really weak. But she is doing so much better. I cannot thank you all enough for your prayers and more. (The Flowers above are from my Mum, Catherine Helshoj, the most wonderful and kind hearted person I know.) Lew also sent us one of his world renown rolling pins, which was awesome! Thank you so much Lew! So many of you have lifted our spirits. I will keep you informed as to how she progresses.
And now, to work:)
It seems that while we were away in the hospital, some deer feel into my trench! Thankfully they did not cut up any of my wire. They do have wicked hoofs you know!
So, once again I had to bring out the big guns to drill through concrete. I actually really love using large power tools…who doesn’t right?:) The hole through the block will carry the dogs water heater and their floor warmer in their new house…once I get it built. One thing at a time though:)
The circuit was able to come up the same 3in conduit that all the 4-way circuits are running in, so I just used a water tight hub to seal the hole in the LB.
Now the fun part was getting all those wires up and in the sweep!
With all the 4-way circuit run to the Woodshop, I could finally run the last few pilot light wires to the Barn/Glass Shop; with the help of my son of course!
Just a few more!
All the pilot lights are powered with 14/2 UF Wire.
Just One MORE!
And of course, the last run just had to require a splice! :)
And of course, I just had to forget to put the shrink tube on!:)
But at least it is an easy fix!
The final step was to route all the lines through the maze, under the old well electrical pipe, under the concrete walkway and into the junction box in the house. It took both my son and I to manipulate all those wires!
Here is the Junction Box as it sits in the space between the shell wall and the mobile wall. The current dryer duct runs over the top of it, but that will definitely be changing before the power is activated. There are a total of 21 circuits within the Junction Box, so it has to be large.
That is it for the 4-way lines. I still have to complete the clothes line circuit but that is a 3-way.
Thank you for reading and for your interest!
