My eyes are red and sore after staring at that ribbon of highway for 6 hours today. Started off thinking we would work on the house but changed plans when we learned IKEA had storage units on sale. Now we are home, tired and ready for bed. Tomorrow the solar panels go in so I will have some photos by the end of the day.

Thanks for all the comments on the floor. Much appreciated.

Chat later

7 a.m. Tuesday

Just checked the house and saw that our heating crew was here while we were away yesterday and installed the hot water heater. Yea! This tank will also heat the water for our radiant floor heating. I'll post pictures later today. 

8 a.m.

Our water heater is in. This is a 40 gallon propane domestic water heater, direct vent to the outside. It will not use any power and will also heat our radiant floor hot water system.

As you can see from the top pictures the leaves are starting to change colour.
