Will using Laser Level to set the Oubliette Hatch
I’ve added a progress chart to the Butcher Shop page which shows a new column for percent done on each of the line items of our To-Do list.
One might notice that there are a lot of things in the future that already have a small percentage done. Although the list is written in a linear format, as constricted by mere two dimensional paper space, projects don’t happen that way. Rather bits and pieces of different things are happening and then sometimes there is waiting for something to arrive, for something to cure, for something to dry or one person is working on one thing while others are working on other things. At other times we all are working on the same thing such as a concrete pour. Thus many of the line items are making progress in parallel.
In the picture above Will was helping me to set the granite hatch for the plumbing access. These granite frame pieces were cut by Ben from the waste granite we get from the local stone quarries and carving sheds in Graniteville and Barre, Vermont. The frames will hold up 1/4″ stainless steel diamond tread plate which we’ll polyurea over when we seal the floors. This way should we have to we can easily get down into the trenches to work with the plumbing. I don’t expect to do that much but there are a few expansions we’ll be doing, adding new drains, when we convert part of the initial cutting room into the smokehouse for makin’ bacon.
The word of the day is Oubliette.
