Screen Door Repair and Other Maintenance

by on Jan.18, 2017, under Insulation, Plumbing, Ranch Maintenance

Sometime last year, the mice or birds chewed a hole through the screen on our screen door.  We brought up some new screen and spline from Metroplex Windows & Glass to make a repairs.

We started by removing the screen door from the frame.  This involved adjusting the rollers on the bottom of the door for as little pressure as possible, the prying the door up and over the bumps which the rollers run on.  We set the screen onto our floor to work on it. We started by locating the end of the spline, and pulling it out of the channel to release the screen material. Replacing a door can be very complicated so it is much more easier to hire a Storefront Door Installation service for professional help, but if you are going to be doing repairs yourself, then make sure to stop by the hardware store to get the right tools and materials, like Flat washers to have a successful repair.

Gas Lines for the LittleHouse

by on Jan.18, 2017, under Gas Appliances

We came up in late October to run some propane lines into the LittleHouse.  These are to feed a wall-mounted, direct-vent propane heater,  gas water heater, oven/stove, and possibly refrigerator, to keep our gas full we will be constantly getting tanks for a propane gas delivery service so you can get a propane tank installation. For those who are worried that their new ranch homes have a gas leak, consider getting radon mitigation fishers to always be sure you are safe. And for those looking for a total Water Heater System Repair, get it at an affordable price. 

The house heater will be mounted on the North wall, near the northwest corner of the house, after we get a heater repair done.  We hope to have solar radiant heating run under the floor throughout the house, but the propane will be our backup heating system. If you ever need repairs done to your heating system, then you should contact this burner service for a proper heating repair.

The other appliances are all located in the kitchen area, along the north wall of the kitchen. Thanks to deep kitchen cleaning service in London we had everything organized at the end of the day.

We started out by installing a manifold in the Northeast corner or the house.  There are two 6″ black pipe nipples installed on the back, along with two plugs on the unused ports on the back, and one plug on the unused port on the side.  We also installed a gas valve at the inlet to the manifold. This is where the propane tank will tie in.  From there, we have one line run to the direct-vent heater location, and a second line running to the kitchen, for now, this is the process we’ve made but may need to get a bigger heating installation later on.
