|What's behind the wall?|
This is both incredibly exciting and has pissed me off completely. Summers are crazy, I completely get that, and kids need to have a chance to be a kid, stay up later, enjoy these days. But that means they are loud and running around and having friends over and pretty much end up being the annihilators of silence and try as I might, I can't block them out enough to get writing done.
|That's all copper.|
Come to find out, when the house was build, they put in a radiant floor system. That they then hooked up to solar panels. But it was in the 70's and that stuff doesn't work and the house settled a little ruining the radiant floor system. But here is the most bizarre thing.
The builder constructed his own 650 gallon water heater.
In the walls of his house.
With 2x6s and sheets of rubber.
We figured the pressure of 650 gallons is just under 6,000 pounds. That's three tons people. Can you imagine pitching, or having the idea pitched? "Honey, I have this idea..."
The best part of this, outside of the entertainment factor that someone actually built this, the really exciting thing is this is step one toward my quiet away from the center of the house the kids can only bug when it's important room.
Have you ever seen something so bizarre? Have any big plans for the weekend?
