Wanted to say thanks to Nester for the help closing off the ceiling of the garage with plywood. Damn furnace wouldn't fire up for the first hour and a half. finally got the furnace running, sorta, and that made the work a lot easier. Pipes are frozen, bringing my brother in law out to fix the furnace this week. Hopefully no pipes are broken. Still need about 1 more sheet of plywood to finish the job but looks good and better light with the fixtures moved to a better spot. Gotta get some heat to fix the yj.

No problem Bill. I hope you get that furnace running good again and that everything is fine once it all thaws out. I will try to run another sheet of board up there ASAP. Man, was cold in there yesterday morning! Good thing the heat came on for that little bit to heat that place up.

Richy, my brother in law that does heating and AC for a living, stopped by and fixed it. line and filter were frozen. said there had to be moisture in the line, water sinks to the bottom and fills the line and freezes. he ran a new temporary line and replaced the filter and it fired right up. nice and toasty in there. now to find the H2O cutoff so the pipes dont flood the place if the pipes are broken from being frozen.

furnace was repaired and works great. couldn't find the right cutoff valve for the water supply so I took my chances, failed. pipe broke in the garage and there is about 1.5" of water on the floor.

Well good that you stopped the leak. Did you find the leak? You need anything to soak up all the water?

last checked the vehicle side was just damp and will likely dry up quick. The fridge side had about 1/4 inch of water left, ran out of time and had to get to work. Hoping a lot of it dried up overnight, I'll know this morning.
