The Fire Is Hot – Electricity In Shop…


Share This Post with a Friend!

The fire is hot…in the outside fire pit that is. Still no wood stove in our shop, but I do have full electricity in there now. 🙂

After a full weekend of trenching water and electric lines I now have the power from main power supply across the creek over to our shop. Everything is working, all 120v, as well as all 240v equipment. WooHoo!

No more generators, unless of course there would happen to be a power outage or something on the power company’s end.

See pictures below of how I ran everything…

As you can see in the pictures I used electric type in ground PVC pipe so that I would meet local codes and so that it would be safe and long lasting. Once again as mentioned in the previous blog post yesterday, almost everything I’ve used here has came from jobsite dumpsters that house builders and contractors have thrown away. You to can go around and get permission from your local builders to go through dumpsters and their piles of throw away lumber, pvc and anything else you might have a need for.

The fire is hot outside in the fire pit this morning and all day today. I’ve literally been working in 20 degree weather with up to 20mph wind gust all day and without a wood stove or heat in the shop yet this outdoor fire served me well for getting warmed up periodically. I’ve went around and gathered up brush and downed wood that needed cleaned up anyway, so the fire also served another purpose besides keeping me warm.

More to come in the next few days from this project and others here at Pin Oaks Farm.

Always do your best,
