...and crafting a purposeful recovery

Toy Story

Enough about recovery, let’s get back to reclamation.  The past couple of weeks have been hugely productive.  I am nearing the completion of the fresh water project and will soon finish up the subfloor.

This water challenge has been one of my favorite milestones encountered in Sparta thus far.  As a child growing up in the mid-sixties, one of my all-time favorite toys was the Kenner Girder Panel Hydro-Dynamic Building Set.  This toy combined making buildings and designing  water systems which flowed throughout the structures with a  variety of tanks, vessels and tubes.  The combinations were endless.  Another favorite toy was an Erector Set, a product of the early-1900’s likely handed down from my much older brother.  Sparta and, in particular, this water project have combined the best of these idle pursuits to provide me with a great sense of satisfaction.  These toys no doubt planted in me this passion that is now flowering.

With the fresh water system in place, the only remaining task is to run final testing,  because God forbid I should seal up the floor only to discover a drip, drip, drip through the belly skin.  The challenge I face is that the closest faucet is 100 yards away.  I could rent 4 or 5 hoses I suppose but have decided, instead, to rent a 5 gallon Igloo cooler and make three or four trips in a wheel-barrow to partially fill the system and check it for leaks.  The cooler is reserved at a nearby rental store for next Monday.

In addition to drinking water, I have made significant progress on grey water disposal – that which will flow from sinks and shower.  Most of the original copper piping will be retained.  It is perfectly good.  I got rid of the old flush toilet flange (I will be composting, remember) and have detoured around that space with plastic pipe and fittings.  I also will replace the original shower drain.  Have a look. By the way, for comments and questions just email me directly at tomgpace@gmail.com.  I had to turn off the comment tool here because of spammers.
