Hi,

Funny how we end up "here" when we intended to go "there" on the internet. I was searching for a solar battery charger and wound up researching solar heaters.

I became excited to build one but don't have the extra $ right now. That turns out to be a good thing since I keep finding more and more good ideas here! Right now my plan is being updated and modified in my head. I guess it will be safe there, barring a hard drive malfunction !

Hopefully I'll have the time and resources to complete this project before next winter. Right after the long-delayed (15+ years) completion of vinyl siding installation, painting of trim, etc., etc. . .

Welcome Dan!  Sometimes we really do wind up at the destination we were meant to, even when we start out heading somewhere else!  We are glad you found us!

Hi, Dan !

The good news is, U found the site !
The other good news is, you don't need *ANY* dollars just yet !
All the initial expense (!) is mental !  (but very enjoyable all the same, or so I'm sure you'll find...)

Make sure you check out these two important areas, if U did not already do so !
