DCP03204.JPG (98253 bytes)    April 21, 2005 - Thursday - Mark Brown again showed up to assist on Monday of this week.  His help and company is always welcome...especially since on Monday we installed the large shower for the master bathroom.  This shower is 4 feet wide by 3 feet deep and has a seat in one corner.  Its not really very heavy since its made of fiberglass.  It is however a bit of a chore moving it around carefully!

DCP03203.JPG (96633 bytes)    April 21, 2005 - Thursday - Tuesday saw the installation of a toilet in the master bath.  We bought an inexpensive Eljer "Patriot" unit that was the only budget model made in the USA.   This temporary unit was installed so we could send back our rented portable toilet while at the same time not risking damage to our wonderful Sterling "Rockton" units.  This one is a bit short on privacy however.

DCP03201.JPG (97553 bytes)    April 21, 2005 - Thursday - Today we installed the whirlpool tub in the master bath.  For those who are detail oriented this unit is made by Maax and is their "Temple" model.  Maax acquired a company in Bellingham, WA in the not too distance past so our tub was made in Washington State!  We always like to support local jobs!  We have our outdoor hose bibs working so this picture shows a garden hose coming from the hose bib on the back porch being used to fill the tub.  Even though it is a shame to waste so much water, our new tub must be fully tested to make sure it did not develop any leaks in transit.  As with our other tub and shower, the whirlpool tub rests on a platform we made.  It is very important that the bottom of the tub is supported by the floor.  It is also very important that the "deck" (the top of the tub) is equally supported.  After the tests are complete we will frame out the front of the tub such that the front edge of the deck is supported.

DCP03208.JPG (139531 bytes)    April 22, 2005 - Friday - Today saw the install of the electric "actuators" on the send manifold for each loop in the radiant floor heating system.  These actuators will open and close the various loops in response to calls for heat from the thermostats in each of our heating "zones".  This home will have four zones: bathrooms, bedrooms, living areas, and the garage.  The actuators can be seen here as the bright white units aligned with each loop on the upper (supply) manifold.
