    My Industrial Cabin Build

    well I didn't get far today. I was taking the housing off the CSST gas line with a new pocket knife....should have used a razor knife. The knife slipped and slid into the back of my hand and we were off to the ER to get me stitched up. I thought I was hurt a lot worse that I really was. I...

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    It looks to be a beautiful day shaping up for work on the house. I dropped the video from the night I broke my nose. It is not on film, as the battery had died. My headaches have stopped and my nose is healing up pretty well as ling as I don’t forget and tub my face. A habit I didn’t know I had...

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    I had a go Pro7 an 8 and a 10. I gave the 8 to my daughter. I use the 7 with an external battery pack for time lapse and also If I need a backup camera. The 10 is much better than the 8 for battery life but will still overheat in the sun. Making them black might be cool but they get hot fast...

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    You did fine. I should have done another couple takes to get it right but that was the day we found out we had to move from our old rental. I was overwhelmed at the time. I am still overwhelmed because The calendar is flying out from under me. I feel lime we are getting close but it kind of...

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    Thumbnails are tough to chose. We sometimes pose for the thumbnails but they have to be pertinent to the video. Thumbnails that have my wife in them generally do better than the ones of me. Shocker. My Daughter will be moving home in December so she will cameo in some of the videos. Especially...

    I have watched WIld Wonderful Off Grid for a couple years. I studied her filming because I think they have some of the best around. They are fill time builders/farmers/investors s now. That helps. I do all my filming with Go Pros. When we finally move in I will add a nicer camera hut right now...

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    I went through the rest of the boxes. Everything appears to be in great shape except a 1.5 inch section of cooling fin on one of the compressors has been “rubbed”. Not a big deal. I am really impressed by the way they are boxed. When I opened the first condenser (inside wall unit) I was in a...

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    I had planned to install the CSST propane Line today. I was on my way to the farm when I got a call from the trucking company, telling me they wanted to schedule a delivery. My wife works in shipping: logistics so she had insisted that I do LTL instead of a freight to door delivery. It saved...

    I had to look that up. Funny that I have gotten so old that science fi cartoons are overlapping into reality.

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    I spent some time reading last night as well. It looks like VA is on their 2018 code which they adopted in 2021 and which is 2017 NEC so I believe I am good to go. I just grabbed some dual pole breakers, 40 and 45 amp. I already have a couple 30’s at home. It will be nice to get this knocked out...

    Correction, the old ladder is a Werner As for the many types of Little Giant, I didn’t know they had so many either. I have one of the 4 foot green ones as a step ladder for the kitchen. Rock solid.

    Starlink

    I have been on the wait list since feb 2021. I was looking online at the accessories. It looks like the longest cable to connect the dish is 100 feet. How are you all overcoming that limitation. I was hoping to mount it on a post or pole in the front yarrd/field. With the wind we get here...

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    I got the 23 footers and they have been both useful and resilient. They are not as ruggedly built as the old webber I have but so far they have been worth the money to me.
