YIPPEE Volume 50
October 2008

YIPPEE Volume Fifty

October's Dictionary:


The Doors: 1) A trippy sixties band. 2) In the Land of YIPPEE: Poor quality Home Depot doors, two for Power House and one for Utility Shed, pre-primed. These doors caused Cassandra much physical agony and both C's annoyance, as the inferior quality made the painting task difficult.


Working from home: 1) Probably includes bedroom slippers, high-speed internet, heat and access to electrical outlets, hot and cold running water. 2) In the land of YIPPEE: Chris grabs some toaster pastries, walks down the driveway, travels to Poocham to switch into public clothes, travels to Keene, for wireless access, works 10 or so hours, returns to Poocham for SVP, travels back home (aka, where Cassandra is) to wait in driveway and walk uphill. To work 10 hours "at home" has taken Chris 14 hours. But he is glad to see his Cass, sleep in his own (albeit unusual bed). C&C greatly appreciate Chris' ability to work locally and end up with some rare site-work together on a Friday! During his week home, Chris arranged a Debate Date: C&C enjoyed a cookie and coffee snack before listening to a Presidential Candidate Debate on the radio.


US: 1) United States 2) In the Land of YIPPEE: Utility Shed.


What is the Utility Shed?: For many reasons, laid out long ago, C&C's YIPPEE plan is decentralized. The US will house water and heat related "utilities". Pipes from the outdoor wood boiler come in, radiant floor tubing goes out. The pipe with spring water comes in, hot and cold water go out. Various controls and such will be inside this heated and insulated little shed. C&C struggled terribly with the JSJS plan problems, but have made this building much happier with a green metal roof and nicely stained shiplap sides.


"Another one bites the dust": 1) line from a Queen song 2) In the Land of YIPPEE: Chris's summary of his another successful entrapment to end Park Avenue mouse shenanigans!


PH: 1) The measure of the acidity or basicity of a solution. 2) In the Land of YIPPEE: Power House.


What is the Power House? Another of the awful JSJS plans was used for this building, similar to the US but bigger. This building will house YIPPEE-Land's power-related functions. Power lines will come in from various exterior sources such as solar panels and/or wind or hydro turbines. System components such as inverters and batteries will be on one side, accessible by Cassandra if need be. The other room will house the backup generator, and is not likely to be accessed by her.



At no point during work on The Doors did C&C listen to The Doors.


October's PH activity: C&C made it a happier building with green metal roof and stained shiplap sides. Doors are painted and waiting inside for Chris' install. Corner molding is ready for install. PH: corner molding made, sanded, stained and sealed. Brown goo application completed. Shiplap installation completed. Door paint mixed up to more acceptable color and applied. Doors carried downhill by Chris and into PH awaiting install.


October's US activity: corner molding made, stained and sealed, access panel work, doors, floor started, discovered can't do solo, plan for use of wallboard scraps.


October's Doors activity: 

Once the expensive-but-safe-for-Cass paint was received and tested, Chris installed the Utility Shed's door. After that, Cassandra was the main one to work with them, applying expensive-but-safe-for-Cass paint coats. said something along the lines of how this is making painting too difficult; it should be taken apart. But it was left together and she did her best to work around that. Cassandra's color mixing saved both Cs the eye agony of having utterly obnoxious green doors. At one point, one door was an obnoxious green, both are now darkish green, originally white. The doors' inferior quality caused both Cs annoyance and made the painting task difficult.  The US door was, to Cassandra's annoyance, painted in place. The PH doors were taken apart and painted on the deck. These doors didn't quite get all the coats that would be ideal before frosts and rains. Biting skeeters and other little nasty flying bugs did land on the doors. Chris carried the two PH doors downhill to that building himself, by moonlight, late one night.


October's Weather & Site Work Conditions Report:


Snow, Heat, Cold, Rain, Ice, Clear, Cold, Rain, Up, Down, Moldy, Windy, Leafy, Icy. There were not any hurricanes or tornado sightings. There were many skeeters.


October's Cass Report:


The month of October started with Cassandra feeling very sick from end of September activities and the cold didn't help and it was dangerously cold and C&C couldn't put off the Annual Firing Up Of El' Camp Stove Beast any longer and my oh my did it suck to have to go back to wood smoky stench and several nights were ruined from the problems of that stupid stove. Outside, as much as possible. On the deck. Breakfasts were eaten up there, even in freezing temps, amidst frost, sunny mornings preferred and some gorgeous ones were savored. Also on the deck were The Doors which made Cassandra quite ill. Some idiot who can't read, but was probably a nice guy otherwise startled Cassandra whilst she was eating her breakfast on deck.
