Winter Project Update

So, as some of you blog followers know, I found this old tank behind Craig Knott’s house, and I  wanted to build something out of it. So here is an update. I’ll probably post a final Before and After photo once I get it painted and looking decent. It’s rough right now. But it’ll get there.

I found some scrap wire weave in the junk pile, so I cut a circle out.

This was the updated hinge, I wanted something I could easily pull out to get the door off.

Here is the door handle, I built from a piece of pipe, and an old truck spring.

Here is the old truck exhaust, complete with a chrome tip (that needs shined up.)

Here is the hole we cut with the plasma cutter to fit the truck exhaust.

After we got it all welded in and set up, we decided to give it a trial run. so we got a fire started in it.

image

It still needs sanded, cleaned, and painted, but its defiantly a start. should be good to cook on by June with some minor tweaks.

Until next time.

I think that catches me up for the past month. hopefully it doesn’t take me this long to post again.

The Snow Has Arrived

Last night as I was coming home from working on the Stove Project, It started snowing. and snowing actually pretty hard for a bit. And by the time I got home (after having a quick Gambino’s Lunch with Britt) we had enough to cover the ground.

Here’s a pic from the ride home.

Since it was gonna be a cold night, I made sure I got a fire going as soon as I got home, and our dogs just love laying next to the hot stove.

Wood Gettin’

Since Britt and I moved to Genesee, our apartment has a wood stove and baseboard heaters… Well, last year we used the baseboard heaters for a month (cuz we moved in, in january… and didn’t have any wood) well, we paid out our noses to keep our house warm!

So Britt and I decided we would do straight up wood this winter. I spent my last rotation off finding the darn stuff!

Luckily, Britt’s (soon to be mine too!) bro-in-law needed some dead trees cut down at his property, so we got some there. Then that following monday My grandpa and I went up Meadow Creek to try and find some. But we came up empty! Although we did run into some snow.

excuse my blury photos, I took most while I was driving… (Bad I know…)

But as for now, I probably have about a cord or so. so it should last us a month or two.
