Well it’s 5:40am, the hens are done and I’ve just ‘flashed up’ our new ‘drier’,
It’s pishing with rain, which makes a change from snow,
but it’s presenting a challenge in the washing/drying department.
At least it was until we started utilizing Harry, our 12kW Lister generator, with two large fans running and the heat given off by his air cooling he makes a fine ‘tumble drier’ The SMA 6.0 H ‘off grid’ inverter has a function on it that enables you to run the generator for an hour. This we’ve found is the ideal way of drying our clothes, at least until the weather improves. Not only that there is a tapping direct into the alternator so when he’s running we’ve a 3kW heater on in the caravan. A perfect start to a chilly morning prior to work
The view from our bedroom window.
Moving oil to the Schoolhouse the easy way.
How to roll a barrel up hill over the wheel arches using a ratchet strap, necessity is the mother of invention. I usually use a piece of wood but forgot it, this method is far easier.
Fresh back from Hawaii, and with a drop in temperature of more than 25 degrees Lachie starts work in a blizzard!!!!
A blocked jet on the ‘Stream Engine’ hydro turbine, sorted in a few minutes and probably something to do with me fitting a new filter screen last week.
All the sockets and switches fitted yesterday
The ‘ships carpenter’ made a shelf for the portable ‘air con’ unit last week as temperatures in the wheelhouse soared. This week the heating is back on and I’ve seen the gritter out on Skye!!!!
