Preping for for solar hot water

There is now a second pipe through the left-side roof close to the ridge allowing for the solar lines to connect to the panel which will be mounted on the other side of the roof (the sunny side)

Looking up through the pipe

The flexible lines in place before we put the pipe through

Its come a little late in the process but we have determined that we can and will be installing a solar hot water panel on the roof.

In order to be prepared for this we needed to put another hole through the roof to allow passage of the supply and return copper lines to go from inside the house out to the panel mounted on the roof.

The lines pass down from the roof through the walls of the 2nd and 1st walls to the basement where we'll eventually connect them to a hot water storage tank.
