Well here I am experimenting with the old blogger again. My pictures uploaded alot quicker today, but it seems I still have to relearn things here. This is just a few pictures to update some progress. This top picture is the electrical system. The inverter will install on the door of the larger white panel. Just a few more things, and I should be in power. I need batteries, incoming generator cable and some solar panels. Just a matter of spending a little cash. Oh ya, a battery enclosure also. I'm sure I will discover a bunch of other little things I need before actually flicking that main switch on.
And the picture below(since I can't seem to squeeze my text in below it) is the water system to date. It's kinda planned and temporarily connected for now. I did end up buying another one of those 81 gallon water tanks. Alot of people think I'm crazy cause ya only need one tank. Did I happen to mention though, that it is a solar powered house? Just like storing electrical energy in batteries, I am also storing pressurized water in tank storage. This will reduce the number of times that the pump will kick in during the day, or more importantly the evening. I will top the tanks up during sunlight hours or when the generator is running, and I should have lots of water for the evening without the pump having to kick in. If ever the pump needs to run in the evenings, it can all happen pretty easily if it needs to happen, but there just may be times when the power supply is low, and I just want to have the control.
This is a personal blog, mainly for my own use. I am building a house with my own two hands, but I am learning alot of things as I go. I do not claim to know what I am doing, or if anything I do is even close to being done correctly or safely. So please, if you are planning on using any of my ideas or methods for your own use, please get professional advice before actually following through with your actions.
