Someone once told me you can tell a lot about a person by how they spend their Sundays.
I spent today crawling under my house sistering up piles, adding bearers, and piling under joists where our new wood burner will go.
Between the spider webs, dead possums, and cat poo, it’s not a fun job.
But once finished, it is very satisfying knowing that the floor is basically bomb-proof.
Here is the Fairburn.
Additionally, a 225 litre hot water cylinder is going in the corner between the two stoves. That is another 250 kgs once full on H2O. I added another pile under there.
Aside from being intensely satisfying, the other redeeming value of re-piling in the middle of summer is that it is the coolest spot on the property.
