    Default Evaperator ordered

    I placed a deposit on a new unit. 20 X 66 CDL Maple Pro . It looks like it will do just what I want. Now to finish the sugar house to put it in. Should have the roof on in two weeks. It's hard working after work when loosing day light. Trying to figure out the best way to buils the coupla. Looks like 3' X 6' is the plan with 2' high doors. I think that will work. Every thing I read points to around that size.

    I need to figure out how to add pictures now. I am going to try tonight after work.
    The wife has 800 pictures on her camra. What is up with that. I think it would be faster if I just went out and bought my own camre.

    Default Roof material

    I have been looking at allot of recommendations for roof material. I can see that I need to stay away from OSB. I was thinking about Advantec, but not sure of that either. Might as well stick to boards. It will take longer, but should last longer also. Need to update the photos.

    I would like to use advantec because it would be faster. Just need to make sure it would last.

    I used Advantec on the upstairs floor of my sugarhouse..... so far very happy. I have a section above the arch that is wide open to the cupola so the steam escapes quite readily.

    Im in the building trade, and i can speak first hand. when it comes to plywood, theres nothing like this stuff. it holds up in the elements very well. resists rain, and stays flat. would reccomend it for any project. as a matter of fact i had an old trailer with a wood bottom,4x8, that needed a new floor. so i used a shhet of this i had laying around 3/4in i believe. i had hauled rocks and other debris on it and still looks like new. very good product

    Default Ash Pan

    OK. Now for my next issue. I am purchasing a new CDL evaporator. I see that there is no pan under the grates, just open to the floor. The person I am purchasing it from said that I don't need one that the majority of the ash will go out the stack. Just a little will end up on the floor. Anyone have a similar outfit? And if so what do you do.
