This project is still in the planning stages;
Here are my specifications, open to public comment and quote. We hope to have it installed shortly, as winter is upon us.
The fireplace is fitted with a wetback. The flue rises up through the mezzanene floor and then through the roof between our two photovoltaics. The solar hot water panel and tank is at least 500mm (50cm) lower again on the roof. The pipes will act as towel warmers as we make our way to our steaming showers.
Kirrah is concerned about the pitch of our roof, the tank is very heavy and we want to use experienced, harnessed and insured workers. This extends our time from glory and increases the cost – money well spent i’m sure.
We have revised our plans in the interest of expediting the works. We now have a winter plan and a summer plan, to be phased in accordingly.
This is the winter plan. Again the hot water out line is brief.
