So the shower glass is finished. I did the four smaller showers and the glass guys showed up on Thursday and finished the other two he had left.  Sandra grouted the niches so the showers are finished.


Although I thought a lot of the 4th floor baseboard was finished, I spent an afternoon running more until I ran out.  Sandra needs to prepare some more so I can finish it off.  

Got the gas and electric run to the outdoor fireplace today and fired it up.  Tomorrow I’ll begin getting it set up for stone-set the fireproof panels and attach the metal lath.  I should be able to start running stone on Monday.  We will be certain to enjoy it as once the sun goes down, it gets chilly pretty quick.  

We’ve been overrun with chipmunks and ground squirrels and they have been eating Sandra’s flowers to the ground.  So we bought a couple traps and in the course of three days, have caught 24 of the suckers and relocated them a mile away.  

We have been having fits with the showers that run off the the pumped loop.  This is the loop that provides for constant hot water at all of the fixtures. The shower temp starts out hot but within a few minutes, begins to cool off considerably.  Thought it may be bad temperature compensators at the showers, but yesterday I got the bright idea of actually grabbing the hot water line on a shower where the the piping is external to the wall.  It was the hot water itself! So now I’m running ideas through my mind - is there a blockage in the air intake or exhaust? Is there an issue with gas flow? Is there simply a problem with the heater itself? So I pull out the manual and read through the troubleshooting section.  Apparently, I was supposed to install a couple check valves in the system.  One on the main line, and one on the hot water loop. What the function is supposed to be ( of course I understand what a check valve does) here, I’m still not sure, but I’ll head to the plumbing supplier on Monday, get a couple and see of that solves the problem.  Cross my fingers!
