Maintenance for the Washhouse

by on Sep.28, 2010, under WashHouse

The Wash House has been up for about 6 years now, and has never been painted.  We have just been relying on the primered siding to keep out the weather.
The siding has done really well, but the door takes a real beating on the western side.  It has started peeling, so we decided to go ahead and put a coat of primer and paint on it.

Here it is after removing it from the hinges and laying it down on the deck to work on it:

Fixing the Plumbing

Broken Again
19 April 2008.
Well, after a long, cold winter, we finally made it back up in late April. The first thing we discovered while turning up the water was a broken inlet pipe to the shed. Good thing it’s easy to find sites like www.contractorstoday.com/commercial-contractors-near-me/ that will help you in a professional matter and promptly. Once upon a time it was a real gamble. especially with timing.

We had to remove the drywall, cut off the pipe, install new fittings and re-solder it. Looks like it will hold this time.
I’m no plumber…

Winterizing the Water Lines

Thermometer

OK, we actually made it back on schedule!
I had wrapped the connection in duct tape to protect it from the sun, in case we didn’t make it back for a long time.
Here, we took a cheap indor/outdoor thermometer and connected the outdoor sensor directly to the pipe, so we can keep track of the temperature of the water at that point. It has the indoor and outdoor reads, and more importantly, has the minimum and maximum reads since the last time it was reset. So when we visit, we can check to see how cold the water got since last time we were up. That might give us a heads-up that we might need more insulation if the reads go too low.
Pay no attention to the reads in the picture, I haven’t peeled off the plastic demo tape yet!

Water Line Installation Again…

Back at It…
09 Sep 2006.
Well, this sure took some time…I was sent on several business trips over July and August, as well as a personnal trip to Colorado in July, so we didn’t make it back up until September!
We finished digging through the rocks (using a pick and shovel) for the last 15 feet to the wash house. After placing the rest of the pipe and gluing it up, we covered it back up with dirt.
