Fiberglass pressure tanks work well here, as galvanized ones rust out much too soon. This system provides water to the dock and our apartment, the store and the shop.
The power distribution system is all manually switched. Here are some of the big master switchboxes. When there is an interruption, we fire up the generator and manually re-direct 8 circuits to keep the entire property energized. Even Carol knows how to do this.
This is the ice factory. Ice is a hot commodity here. It costs $5.00 for 8 lbs. The ice maker runs 24/7.
The marina never sleeps and is a major hub for all waterborne activities here. The ''TREEHOUSE'' is on the second level, above all of the action. It is a great place to watch the goings-on and have our privacy, all at the same time. Did I mention that this dock is also a scheduled ferry stop?
