The winter weather that's currently gripping the country so early in the season is no exception in Nashville. So, we've done a number of things to cope as the house is a loooong way from having central heat. First was to shut off the water with the valve down in the basement. Nighttime temps have been in the low 20s and daytime hasn't been warming up a whole lot. Next was to snag a kerosene torpedo heater at Northern Tool. They have been going fast. I called Friday morning, and they had three. I asked for one to put on hold for me until lunch time. By the time I got there the others were gone and the manager had called me asking if I was coming to get it, as people had gotten the others. Picked up insulate pants and a Carhartt knockoff jacket.


Got the heater assembled and filled and lit it off. Pretty loud with the fan it has, but kicks out a ton of heat.

Sandra and Cassidy continued putting the foam panels between the rafters, but also went and put in the additional blocking that needed to be done. I was working again on roughing in the drain lines and finally have it run together and through the main floor into the basement. Need to finish the vents which will take tomorrow, and plumb the first floor bath. Next weekend I should be able to start on running the water lines. I'm not too smart, but I did learn from this cold wave, that I shouldn't actually connect them up until we have heat In the house.

The new 125,000 BTU heater. Got it big so we can use it at Angel Fire on the Last Rodeo when we finally kick that project off.
