  1. Today
  2. get lottsa oil sunflowers out. they will come. Just has a fox sparrow fly in. White thoats and song sparrows should be close behind.
  3. Scare some 50 miles north Eyeguy.
  4. Couple of questions/comments... Check the draw on your AC. I assume that 15amp @ 14 awg will be good enough, but would be good to confirm. Make sure to look at the draw at start up. Have you gotten the 12 ga THNN wire yet? Seems like a lot of the companies tend to oversell the gauge of the wire. It looks like you have overkilled the gauge requirement for most of your DC circuits (i.e. lights) which is good, but if you feel it is lightweight, you might want to step up your furnace and DC outlets again Hard to tell from the schematic, but you are running both ground and positive back to the source correct? I wouldn't start tying ground circuits together. Every connector that you put in a wall is a potential fail. Obviously it is unavoidable for items on the same circuit, but the schematic looks like you are tying grounds across circuits. Just a follow on to the previous comment.... Are you spray foaming or doing batts/foam board? We did spray foam "from the outside in" against the tongue and grove before we sided it. For that reason, we cut PVC and used it as a junction boxed and then taped the ends of the PVC before foaming. All connections occur in these boxes... that way we can get to them "if" some butt connector causes a problem or we need change out something (had a few hold lights fail, and this work awesome to replace) Are you putting your hole lights on a switch? Didn't see one in the drawing Are you using pancake style ceiling lights? I was wondering if you had the capability to turn them off individually if desired. Another comment on the same topic. We put in a 3-way for the ceiling lights so that we have one switch by the entry door and one by the back bunk.... Is definitely nice when the rattle reels go off at 2 am! These are just somethings that we did... along with some things that we should have did - but it looks like you have put a lot of thought into this. It is definitely easier to do things the right way first!
  5. Usually first part of may they get here. Tons of finches here yet. And juncos and the regular wood peckers. Hopefully see some cool new ones soon.
  6. Any word on Orioles heading north yet? I'm still a sterile bird void at my feeders.
  7. I'm washing every wall and ceiling in the house .... and it's kickin my butt. Pass the Advil.
  8. Well, something is broken. These links should have worked. It's been strangly inconsistant this way all along. The 2nd and 3rd are from the Ben Harper video already posted so ... yea its broken. Too bad. https://youtu.be/Wck03Y72340 https://youtu.be/4B-VMr2-228 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4B-VMr2-228
  9. Interesting, I found some info online about it. I went to Rosemount HS.
  10. 1968

    12VDC wire?

    waytekwire.com has great wire plus other supplies, and is local. Puts regular store wire to shame.
  11. Was curious is all, billy goat was the bridge on parkway.
  12. Yesterday
  13. At the rate things are going..........probably attend my first Vikes game at US Bank. But I'm kinda with Del on this one, walking through the grass barefoot and being able to truly smile once again would be very nice.
  14. Not sure which bridge you are referring to. The old swing bridge across the MN River? Only lived here in Savage as an adult, so I don't know where the cool kids used to hang out.
  15. The power converter should tell you what gauge based on distance between it and the battery . The farther apart the heavier the gauge they will want you to run.
  16. Find me another telecommuting job........this is awesome!
  17. We have 15 sign up with one likely duplication,(so 14).
  18. What about making a moveable dinette? Make the two booth freestanding (and light) so that that can me moved wherever you want. 30" wide is prob all the wider that you would go. just a thought?
  19. Yep. I got some woodies in the backyard pond that found my wood duck house today. I was trying to get a pic but they werent cooperating very well. But I've got a lot of coffee on the deck mornings for the foreseeable future. I'll catch them with my camera. I did get this guy catching some sun the other day. Didnt waste any time coming out. There was still a bit of ice on the pond.
  20. Social distancing today. Nice to get away from home for the afternoon and enjoy the nice weather with my kids:
  21. I'm gonna have a big one-just-like-silly-me bonfire and go all night long
  22. Over a day old
