I mean, it's pretty cool. but settle down.
Does exclusion also work if moving states for a job? Considering a promotion at work but can’t do it if they hit me with capital gains. Only lived in current house for 18 months but its gone up 200k in value.
Just went down this road - there are a lot of exclusions that apply. I went through this whole process of drafting a memo for my reasons and I don't think my cpa even read it. My personal approach was to go through a cpa rather than self file, just in case there's some documentation that I wasn't aware of.
Maybe he’ll find them boys from the grassy knoll. Buried in the damn desert. Unmarked graves out past Terlingua.
Can’t do it if they hit you with cap gains? You do realize you only pay taxes on the increase, right? And they max out at like 20%, so you’d still be netting +$160k on the sale. How does that stop you from taking a new job???
Not gonna get into all the details here but just trying to make the move make sense in both the short term and long term. It’s all good, we should be set on the exception sue to the move.
blind dog does consumer reports parse by counter depth?
need a fridge
Not BD but counter depth is an option but as far as I can tell only after you choose door style and width.
Lots of options on refrigerators
top freezer, bottom freezer, french door, side by side, built in
then all of those categories have diff widths
lmk if you need any of those posted
Christmas polywood order is finally in. Looks like I’m going to be busy tonight.
Time to rejoin this thread. Moving from Phoenix to Denver for work. Looking on South side of town, like Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Parker, etc… Anyone have any advice on Denver?
I hate buying and selling houses. The anxiety of hoping someone will put in an offer on your house while also stressing about being outbid on every house you put an offer in on is just the worst.
This will be the 5th house my wife and I have bought it just about 11 years (all work-related moves). I keep saying it’ll be our “forever” home and I keep being wrong.
Take solace in knowing that part isn't going to be a problem at least.
I think this part of the country is pretty and interesting. But, what the hell do you do for water? Do you drill a well?
Yep, drill a well, that’s what my friend did.
Got one of them fancy velux skylights with the solar blind today. Come to find out that it needs a $200 gateway to interface with wifi. Anyone come up with a cheap workaround for that? Seems like there may be a diy solution for the initiated.
i bought the gateway which came with a temp/humidity/CO2 sensor for inside the house as well, because mine also opens and closes based on solar power. i think the workarounds aren't very easy/good. Velux Active with Netatmo is compatible with apple homekit and google home, but not SmartThings, unfortunately.
Have some lights that are the same way. I really hate the extra boxes. Seems like it would be easy for them to just let it work with google/alexa/siri out of the box
i let mine sit in the closet with the other boxes
It wouldn’t be easier at all for them. It’s easier to develop their own closed system and then charge you extra for the convenience.
So lovely waking up to the house at 78 degrees with the AC set at 74 and the unit running but not cooling. I was not looking forward to this.
Just noticed two of my vents have condensation and my handler is flashing some neat codes. It's gonna be a fun summer
That happened to me last August. I live in Phoenix. Not fun.
Boy oh boy. Looks like I’m gonna be learning to run a backhoe on Wednesday. Who in their right mind just let’s a guy borrow their backhoe? Gonna save me a couple thousand bucks though.
don't hit a gas line
What kind of machine, and do you have any excavation or equipment experience?
Depends if the lines have been switched to operate like a trackhoe.
Moving boulders and ripping out small trees on an outside undeveloped lot. No gas lines to hit.
Manual labor only. But he says he taught his sister to use it in 30 minutes. I’ma die aren’t I.
Nah man. You'll have a blast. Easier if you DON"T have experience on another excavator, honestly. Couple of thoughts:
-Make a mental checklist of things to do before moving (outriggers, bucket, p brake, travel lock, etc.)
-Take 10 minutes and operate the boom/stick/bucket without touching the ground. Pretend you are trying to move a soda can around on top of the soil. Best way to learn.
-Make sure you know how to get in low gear at low throttle to traverse, you'll want more throttle to dig. (1000rpms to move, 1500+ digging)
-Outriggers may seem like a bother, but from a safety standpoint, they are crucial, don't dig without them engaged.
-Don't get greedy. It is way safer to take 90 secs to reposition than it is to dig way off to the side.
-Hills are tough. Hoes are ass heavy like you wouldn't believe. If you have to torque on something to get it up/out, be downhill of it if possible. Hoe will pull you towards the work from above.
-Smooth bucket (as opposed to one with teeth) is better for grading, but either is hard to see from operator position. Better at loading than digging or smoothing.
Send some before/after pics, and enjoy the machine. Mine makes life a lot more fun and expands possible projects immensely. Can't wait to get it out on the new property.
damn now i want a backhoe
Team never above 70° in the summer. I can’t even imagine.
Turns out my condensation is from my ac boots not being insulated. What's the remedy for this? I've read spray foam isn't all that effective. Could I just move the insulation to expose the metal, cover with mastic tape, and put the insulation back?
Foil faced bubble wrap. Lowe's carries it around here. That, a pair of scissors, and 3M foil tape. Maybe a couple of beers too.
Something like this?
Exactly that. All new metal duct in residential applications has to be wrapped and sealed in unconditioned spaces. Boots are a PITA to wrap, but worth it. Should be R-6, and typically mice won't chew it.
I had an AC tech sent out by my home warranty at the time cut through some insulation to read the temp on the return. Fast forward a few weeks and I ended up having to replace dry wall in my basement.
Gracias. Would you recommend using that as a waterproof bottom layer and going over the top with something like this, or is that by itself sufficient for insulation?
Forgive me for not recalling where you live......in VA the bubble wrap is enough. If you are further south, more humid, are more poorly sealed from outside air, or are OCD, you can add more, it won't hurt anything. My guess is that you will have had enough with the first layer, it's not the most fun task.
I'm in dallas and really just want to stop the dripping on 2 vents that are in a cathedral ceiling. Maybe I'll try that as the first pass and add more from there
The yard has really loved all this spring rain we have had in the PNW
nice backyard but i do not miss the small pnw backyards
almost makes me miss oregon
then i remember that all that shit grows so fast you're always doing yard work
It's not for everyone but I like a very full and kept yard and don't need much grass. However next house I need a bit more room for sure.
I'm just not a fan of Suburbia type lots with massive setbacks and huge front lawns. They just look so... boring.
Everything is growing like crazy right now too, over 300% our normal rainfall for April-May thus far. Legit spent 12 hours this last weekend gardening and removed an entire truck bed of debris off my 7000 sqft lot
i dont like having my neighbors right on top of me. fucking sucks.
My lot is 4500sqft
Five other houses within spitting distance
I have 3 acres outside of Salem. I have someone who does 12 hours of work a month then I’m doing stuff on the weekend. Even with that, my property looks like total shit right now due to all the rain.
I was walking in flip flops yesterday evening and noted the grass touching my ankles and thought man I need to mow
Then I realized I last mowed on Thursday
Cover your ankles you trollop
Question for the board, anyone going the route of installing Solar Panels? It looks like the federal government still has rebates available and I am considering it, but am kind of clueless to best understand how to get started. Any ideas?
