Home in Progress

Our first home, possibly the final, since we moved to the great state of Maine. These are pictures of a few of the on-going projects around the house, inside and out.

Log Drying Solution

It's cold in Maine.  People heat with wood and it's not uncommon for wood stoves to be used 12 months a year.  People burn between 9 to 12 cords of wood per year, but we only use wood for a fire pit we enjoy on the deck.  All of our wood comes from our property (so far) and is from newly chain-sawed trees.  After the first burn - I discovered that green wood is useless except for making smoke.  A little googleing gave me the bad news that wood takes a whole season to dry after cutting. Doh! Time to experiment with solar dehydration!

The Anxious Boat Build

I've been wanting to combine a few favorite hobbies, woodworking and physics, and dive head first into a project I know nothing about - sailboats.

Indoor Golfing with a Wii and Real golf clubs

I've always wanted a home indoor golf swing simulator so I could geek out on club head speed, estimated distance, trajectory, spin rate, etc. I began to wonder if I could put a simulator in my home.
