Wild Wonderful Off-Grid

پیش 16 روز

Today we are building a steel stanchion to hold 32 solar panels. Our solar power system fully powers our off-grid home and with the addition of these 20 extra panels we will be able to power our home on a cloudy winter day as if it was a sunny summer day. We expect this stanchion build to go more smoothly than the first since we have "been there done that" however, we run into a small snag when we incorrectly measure the hole we dug for the steel pipe last week. We need to correct the issue quickly and move on so we can get the concrete poured before nightfall and the next incoming snowstorm.

We are a couple who are building our own home from the ground up in the mountains of West Virginia. After living near the city our entire lives we finally decided to sell it all, pack up our 3 kids and live in an RV on our 73 acres while building our own debt free, off-grid house and learning to live a more self-reliant life.

Erin looks like a Gnome the way she wears her WWOG stocking cap. You need to wear your stocking caps the way Gnomes do for marketing purposes and for turning it into your own sales gimmick. Pity the weather cannot be more cooperative for you. You need to always lift with your legs and not your back. I reckon 24 yanks on that mixer cord is a charm, you think? Maybe you should have let Erin do that. Two or three pulls are suppose to be plenty, maybe you need a carburetor prime or at least soak your air filter in gasoline before you start it again after such a lengthy storage, you think. That is a lot of work for that particular job without throwing your back all out of whack in the process. Great video, you two. Namaste. 🙏🏻🖖☯️

Could you have taken out some of the stone with the post hole digger instead of re-cutting the pipe ? Just thinking ? Plus with the ground so wet just empty the bags of concrete into the holes and it will pull the water / moisture from the ground and actually be much stronger ?

Hi Josh and Erin, you two are the greatest. Erin, please look after yourself. Picking up cement bags etc. are not good for your health. While you are young, you don't realize what you are doing to your body but when you are older, you will know about it. Save yourself from it. Your co-operation in all the projects are phenomenal. I admire both of your determination to do everything 100 percent. I enjoy your videos which are filled with love, laughter, fun and excitement. Love you guys.

I use Sta- Bil in my engines when I put them away. Also tou can spray a little WD-40 into the cylinders to ensure the piston doesn't seize, plus WD-40 will burn when trying to start the engine.

For that low stanchion what I would have done would be to attach the stanchion to the pipe and level the pipe by supporting it on each side of the stanchion. I would have then poured the concrete and let it set, then removed the supports holding the pipe.

Are you pouring concrete at subzero temperatures ? Won't the water shift in your mix after it's cast ?

The ground wasn't frozen. Above ground temp was 35degrees. Our holes are 50" deep. After pouring concrete we left about 6" open to fill with dirt to ensure nothing would freeze

Sea-Foam, Walmart sells it. Just pour it in and NO MORE carb problems. If it uses gas or diesel at my place it has it in it. Even my gas jugs have it in it. A product that WORKS. I put it in my chain saws, weed-eaters, boat cars everything and I have had no problems starting or running. It removes moisture, stabilizes fuel, cleans carbs and injectors, and more. I have gotten so many to use it I SHOULD get a commission on all of it they sell. TRY IT jimbo

I am curious why you used Black pipe gas line in this project versus using EMT all the way? Just a thought that threaded EMT 10’ with threaded couplings for horizontal stability versus compression couplings which have no horizontal stability. I would also think the three combinations of metals would need insulators in between them to prevent oxidation.

I have had a electric concrete mixture I got tired of jumping the concrete into a wheelbarrow so I made a shoot or it show when I dumped it out it went straight to where it was supposed to go to I attached the shoot to the machine under Neath even though all of the concrete did not go into the place I still just had to rake it into the hole

That lowest front post ain't to far from the ground. Do ya think there's a possibility that some time, Bruce or Leon; or even one of their pals might try to hop up and go for a walk on your solar panels thinking it's some kind of ramp for them to try out? A protective wire fence wouldn't block the sun. Just a thought.

Actually we are debt free and have built our house and solar system with cash as we have gone along. No loans here 😊🙌 For our particular situation the cost of our initial solar install was the same as the cost for us to get electric run up here so we went with solar so the amount of time it would take to recoup that cost was irrelevant. Then we added an additional 20 panels and 2 charge controllers neither of which are super expensive additions... Especially considering we can do the work ourselves rather than pay someone.
