Gravity Fed Water System

The assembly and first run of the gravity fed water system.  The hot water side is waiting for a on demand propane hot water heater, but...

We've got water!  The most precious and undervalued resource in Western Washington.

This collaborative project features the ceramic work of Joelle Montez.  Joelle threw the basin after experimenting to see how large it had to be to hold the pressure of the entire carboy.

Bill Dawson helped me by expanding this 3/4" to 1/2" reducer bell to fit on to the ceramic water basin.

And Bill let me buff this old Crane faucet I got at the Packwood fleamarket almost 2 and a half years ago.  I bought it for 15 bucks and with some new gaskets and cleaning I mounted it today.

 I forged the brackets and fit the cedar board to hold the basin.

The ongoing aesthetic feature of the Leafspring has been to expose the functional components of the house in a beautiful way.
