Cazie & Fringe enjoying the cool dog house:
Eventually I will build a trellis in front of the swamp cooler. It will go up and then angle over the cooler to the wall of the house. I'll plant an evergreen vine to grow up the trellis to hide the swamp cooler and electrical box from view.
Although not in the picture, a timer and conduit was added later when swamp cooler installed. I was able to pull wire from the other side of the wall during the bar area remodel (future post). I also tapped into the water line and installed another faucet and valve for the water line to the swamp cooler (not shown).
Unframed corner due to solid bedrock that wouldn't break up.
The blocks were topped with saltillo tile and then two redwood 1x2's used to support the cooler up off the tile.
