Slow Going Until Next Week

Filed under: Exterior,solar kiln — Duane Diefenbach @ 5:02 pm

The weather this Thu, Fri, and Sat meant little work got done on the house except the plumber did accomplish some installation of drains and vents. Saturday Ethan and I moved a load of cherry up to the kiln. What an event trying to haul an overloaded pickup truck up into the field with 6-8″ of wet snow on the ground. We only had to reload the truck once. ¬†Below is a picture when we were done. Also, we installed the homestead pole from where power will go underground to the house and barn.

However, on Sunday the front door was installed. We “like” the Penn State blue color. Also, the siding will start going up quickly.

This week I have business in New Orleans all week. I hope to provide the electricians as much info as possible so that I don’t have to try to make too many long-distance decisions.

  1. Good day,

    I have a farm in Littlestown, PA. I purchased a small LT-15 Bandmill at an estate auction. I have been cutting logs for about 6 months part time as I do not live on the farm and storing the cut lumber in the barn where the cows would come in to get milked. It gets adequate airflow and obviously inside. In my reading and learning, It states I should kiln dry the wood. I am interested in where you purchased plans for your kiln and how it is still working. I also am curious on more information on your humidity logger. Any feedback would be very welcomed.
