Instant hot water

 Long over due update. Things have been a lil slow out on the Mesa. Mostly hiking, and happy hours. Until recently when I realized old man winter was creeping in fast.

Finally got around to installing the tankless hot water heater, which required cutting another 5 inch hole in the roof to vent this thing. 80000 btu puts off a lot of carbon dioxide, and even after all the holes I've cut into the container its still pretty air tight, so Ive been figuring out ways to get some make up air into it.
 Hole cut, and double walled duct installed (B Vent). Not the ducting recommended for the unit due to possible corrosion overtime, but the recommended duct cost 220 smackers for 4 ft section, and this piece cost $14, so even if it needs replaced every few years its worth my time.
Vented out the roof originally planned on venting out the side of the container, but figured out that was not a option after I already had water lines installed. Was lucky enough to have just enough space between the panels.

Thanks for visiting!
Good Day!
