You did the right thing, that wouldn’t be dry before March.
I’m guessing I should still maybe spray a sporicide on the concrete and up around the base boards?
And still look into fans and a dehumidifier to try and minimize damage to the walls and baseboards
Get the moisture out first.
ALL THE ZOYSIA
If we hadn't discussed location in the dm's I would have been

I have Verizon Fios and bought my router though them. I live in an 1800 sf townhome and have always had good performance with my WiFi until recently. I only have a few smart devices (4 switches, 2 cameras, a nest thermostat, a couple computers and phones) but bought a new TV that connected to WiFi. Since around that time, my performance is spotty and a lot of devices are having a hard time connecting to WiFi. TV can’t connect to Netflix, nest thermostat offline, etc. Could this be related to the extra TV or just random bugginess? I feel like my 10 devices within 25+ of my router shouldn’t be an issue. I also seen the 5G network for me to connect to so hoping Verizon can explain why I can’t use that one
Ugh, main line is backed up. Have a guy coming out this evening. I’m sure the line is fucked as the house is 50yrs old and I have some pretty big trees in my yard.
Big fan of that water tower. It provides some cool scenery around sunrise/sunset.
Anyone have experience with replacing a fireplace?
Sending prayers for a couple of you guys.
Thanks for reminding me I still need to buy a water leak sensor before winter.
anyone here have an outdoor elevator style situation? curious on cost of such a thing.
I have 4 to send supplies to various wings of my mansion, what do you need to know?
I'm looking at a house that's built on a bluff that has amazing views...but also has like 100 stairs up to the front door from parking.
boy you are in luck, my mansion is perched on the rim of the Grand Canyon so 2 of mine are exactly like that, only 1,000,000 steps.
cool. so cost estimate?
sorry, I bought it like that, couldn’t tell you.
For real though NineteenNine I am sure that is something that could vary widely by area, contractor, and demand as it is a pretty specialized project. I have seen those in abundance at lake areas for shuttling gear from docks and such up to houses/cabins.
*edit - key factors could provide a big difference in cost: do they have to anchor to rock or is there enough sediment to dig for placing posts for support.
Just buy a scissor lift
how many pounds of candy do I have to eat for you to do this yourself after you’ve had a 12 pack and video it?
I believe you have as much experience with elevators as you could ever want
But if you want more, proceed sir
None, if it doesn’t involve a boat.
I’m about to go through a wood to gas fireplace conversion I think... part of it because we want to hang a TV with our renovation
Thinking about the same, share details when you got them
What exactly are we replacing?
Wood burning Insert, flue
First guy that came out said we would have to rip out the brick on the interior to get into the fireplace and replace it, i am curious if it’s possible to remove the siding from the outside and replace it from posterior
Posterior talk, I am in!
i am very curious on this. i hoped one could just slide an insert in...
looking good Degausser
Price per sq ft or piece?
Thanks, man. What specifically are you asking for the price on? The sod?
That's now how ours works, but idk what you have going on. Seems unlikely but not impossible that getting it out from outside would be easier. Usually they have a separate face plate to fit back to the fire box, but maybe yours was bricked in. Pics might help.
Yeah, the unit price of the sod.
I got a quote on Zoysia, among others, but didn't feel like they gave a competitive quote.
Having laid sod twice, I would easily pay double that to never do it again
I was thinking the same thing. I did a pallet one afternoon a couple years ago and thought, yea that’s totally worth it.
Is that an insert or just a grill/grate that covers the front of the firebox? Never seen an insert with andirons like that. Either way, I bet it could come out, thought it might have to be cut/demoed. I put ours in and installed a flue liner too. Not a lot of fun, but saved several grand.
So finally moving into the new house and it's just going swell.
How it started:
How it's going:
Apparently the distributor and builder didn't communicate on the electrical requirements for the fridge so this nice hunk of metal is sitting in the kitchen while we use a 20 year old dorm fridge. Range can't go in bc of a gas shut off valve issue. And steam oven/microwave/dishwasher didn't go in bc the distributor didn't realize we'd already closed and they could. Beyond livid. So all of this is sitting in the kitchen and we spent an entire weekend with a $100 air fryer and old dorm fridge.
Purse and giant Reeses are mine. Camo hat belongs to contractor.
Beautiful home. Sorry to hear about the issues you’re having.
Not installing your appliances before move in is a capital offense
Yea learning the hard way. We paid for a few big ticket items outside of the mortgage so they had to be installed post close. A few of those items took longer than planned so it pushed them back 2 days, to the morning of our move. That's when shit hit the fan.
My wife has been on me about finally installing our table before thanksgiving dinner. Needless to say, it turned out well
What’s the consensus on termite bonds? I live in an area where they are definitely a problem, and remember my parents having some big termite disaster at our house growing up, so we’ve always had one.
It’s been $100-125 per year since we bought the house, but now on year 5 they want a $500 “5 year retreatment” to keep it active. Apparently this will be every 5 years. Is this a standard thing, or are they trying to rip us off right before Christmas?
Seems more like a boom lift job
40’ extension ladder and trim your way down. Livestream regardless.
There may not be a piece of equipment that I’ve heard more regional names for.
