Wonderlike pics en stories, janee lyk of mens heeltemal somer moet oordoen daar  :lol8:   :thumleft:

My son was reeling them in on our last day. His sister was chocked that she caught nothing. They even changed fishing rods and 2 minutes after the change he caught  a fish with “her” rod.  :imaposer:

Demmit, I must be the only saffer that would love to be in these winter weather. I am, afterall, ahem, well insulated...

I have always dreamed of Canada but it just stays out of my reach. Now I am old, diabetic, cancer survivor, dumb (no degree/diploma) and just have to keep looking at these pages... :'(

Ah well, I have my model trains to keep me happy.

We get crime updates in our local area via text messages. This one was pretty funny:

On August 17, 2019 at approximately 01:19 3 unknown males entered........One of the males had a toy gun while another male had a rubber hammer. All three suspects were wearing black balaclavas and gloves. The owner was hit over the head with the rubber hammer and the suspects stole $1500 in cash and 6 -8 liquor bottles.

My wife is now hinting at Canada but I'm pretty sure I'd die of the cold. Just moving from EL to Ct was bad enough for me, I had to go out and buy jerseys and long pants  :o

It’s not cold all of the time. July and August usually maintains temps in the pluses. ;)

Speaking of cold.... we spend thousands of dollars on making the house air tight to save in heating, condensation etc. And then we spend thousands more to make it “breathe” again.



From right to left:
Fresh air intake with fan connected to the range hood for cooking. When the range hood turns on, the intake fan also turns on replacing the air the range hood pushes out. This fresh air could be -40C so it needs to go through a 220V heating coil to take the cold edge off.
The white pipes are the furnace fresh air intake for combustion air, and furnace exhaust.



From right to left:
Air exchange fresh air intake
Central vacuum exhaust
Clothes dryer exhaust
Air exchange exhaust (for condensation control in winter. It brings in cold air, blows it over a heat exchanger, and blows out high humidity air from showers and bath rooms)
Hot water heater exhaust
Furnace exhaust
Pellet stove exhaust.
The pellet stove fresh air intake is around the corner....



Furnace fresh air intake

And here is where it all comes together

Amazing that you know what it all is.  Around here people don't care to understand.

Also interesting how many 2" pipes you have for ventilation.  Around here I can't do anything with a 110mm pipe with the volume of air required as per the 'new' building regulations.

 This fresh air could be -40C

What happens if your power goes out for 24 hours or more, can you cope? Heating done by gas?

Hy het 'n pellet stove vir hitte.
Daar is ook 'n heat exchanger wat seker omtrent 75% van die energie bespaar om die koue lug warm te maak.
Dan as ek reg onthou het hy ook 'n generator om krag aan die gang te hou??

Korrek. Het ook n gas “fireplace” wat nie elektrisiteit nodig het nie, en die pellet stove kan op 12v batterye loop as die generator moeilikheid gee. Het n plan A,B en C  ;D
