Sunlight and small electric motors.

Final exams and term papers are fading, and I’ve been preparing my workshop for a summer in full swing. Checking my tools, buying a bird feeder. Stationed on the balcony of our third floor apartment, my shop gets an F (okay, D+) for weather protection, but an A for view and natural lighting. The open-air environment is fitting given the destination of the boilers I’ll be making there.

I’ve found the process of designing and prototyping the boiler a fascinating one. The goal of this blog is to give some insight into both the production of the widget and the operations of a small outdoor industry startup. It will also give those who have reserved one of the little gems a chance to track the progress of this initial run. Updates about when more will be available will also be posted for those who missed reservations.

Please feel free to share it with friends and let me know what you think about it!

GREAT JOB. I just finished another Grad degree so I understand your relief!! Tired of giving up everything but work and family for school. Looking forward to your posts.

Congrats on finishing! I still have a semester to go, but at least I have the summer to myself. :)
