here is a video tour of the completed roof. we installed a new “cool roof” and solar plumbing system that will supply 90% of the hot water needs for the home. we also reinstalled a 4 kilowatt (4000 watt) photovoltaic system that will supply 60%+ of the homes electrical needs.
our westbourne project is almost complete. the owners will be moving back in in about a week and a half. we have a couple things to finish inside but i’m excited to show you where we are at with the project. over the course of the next week or so, i’ll be posting short videos showing off each room or rooms so please check back often.
this was a big day. the airstream is now ready to roll for the vintage airstream rally happening this weekend in albequerque, new mexico. there will be 50+ vintage airstreams there! we made a push to get it in a temporary state to be able to use it. i picked it up from area 63 this afternoon and will be putting it on the road tomorrow as we start our journey. it is essentially an aluminum tent at this point (nothing installed in the interior, but we will be able to sleep inside it).
i have owned it for 2 1/2 years and this well be the first time we’ve actually used it and slept in it. very exciting! on the way back home we’ll be spending one night in sedona where the mrs. will be enjoying a stone helaing massage thing as i’ll be babysitting the boys… i mean spending time with the boys. we’ll be shooting video at the rally so check back soon for updates!
i couldn’t resist a photo-op at this point
new panel. notice the reflection in the middle, down lower is actually a reflection of the asphalt.
