The drawing board

I've spent many hours with graph paper and the online room designer this weekend and still haven't got a plan I like for my cabin. Where I'm running into trouble is with the storage - clothes closet, coat/stuff closet, and utility room. Arranging these to my liking is proving difficult. I also keep going back forth about the indoor plumbing thing.

If I can drag my butt out of bed early enough tomorrow, I'll go look at some 12v 150Ah AGM batteries I found online that are close to town here. He only wants $50 each for them, and says they're all good. They came out of a cell tower. It's worth a look.

I also want to stop at the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore and see what they have in windows, doors, and kitchen cabinets.

Good, because they're sitting in my garage now :) Next task will be to choose a charge controller and inverter. And find some solar panels!

$50 each - a bargain - and they're good - brilliant.

Hope the brunch is delicious - what's on the menu?

I was checking out your blog and see that you have a webcam, but it doesn't seem to work in my browser. I need some sort of plug in. Any idea if that is a java or flash player?
