The pipe you see coming out of the house below the double window in the dining room is the vent for the hot water heater. It won't always look like that, of course.
Next to the door on the garage, you'll notice two boxes. The top one is for an exterior light, and the bottom one is for an electrical outlet.
I'll publish another post sometime tomorrow with two photos Steve snapped for me yesterday. The trapezoid window wall has been sided, and we had just enough melting for you to see a bit of the roof with the siding! I know, I know, the anticipation is killing you! Try to get some sleep tonight anyway.
All is well in the Keweenaw.
