Get yourself one of those glass garage doors.
Not enough walking space around the hot tub
Bought a fridge finally. Going to be here tomorrow, the wait time for these things seems to have vanished.
Yea we discussed pushing it out further. The initial drawing was like this and had the hot tub going out into the pool. We pulled it out to give more swimming area and making it match the other side seating area but it does make a narrow path, like 4'.
Probably don't want to put those chairs there, then
I'm behind on the dbl news.
How many pairs of shoes is he up to?
What are we even doing if we’re not getting a diving board?
Are diving boards even a thing these days? a.tramp
I was at the pool last weekend and saw several hth
Damn your pool has multiple diving boards.
Only for people that want to pay extra on their insurance premium (in addition to what a pool will raise it) all for the ability for like 5 people to use it once every year.
So basically, no.
Can’t do a proper can opener without a d board
My buddy has this and it they know, it works. I was amazed. He asked me if I wanted to kill a rooster, I Jerry Seinfeld gif.
Like for real, I can count on one hand the amount of diving boards I have seen in the past year.
Texans are cowards, nothing new here folks
Looks really nice, dbl. Team shallow lounge all day, we love sitting there on hot/humid nights and they’re great for smaller kids/toddlers to have their own little area.
And if you do any kind of covered cabana/sitting area I cannot recommend these swing beds from James+James enough.
I assume a tube slide thing would come with a higher insurance premium too?
Was it better or worse if the pool deck was connected?
I can't remember. I want to say that if it's part of the house, it has more coverage than what you'd get from an "other dwellings" coverage in a standalone situation. Perhaps a higher deductible as well, though. I think that's just something I'd look into if I were building from scratch.
On top of renovating this house, just closed on a lot we plan on building on in the next 24-36 months. lol
Recommendations on Zero-Turn Mowers?
Looking for a standalone ice maker to free up some space in the freezer and be more bougie. I like large clear cubes but the kid likes the sonic style pellets. Ideally could do both. The ones I see on Amazon require water jugs but we have An RO tap we’d like to run off of. Any suggestions?
Seems like it would just be cheaper to pay homeless people to pee on your driveway and melt it.
The sonic style ice machines are more prone to issues. At least thats what the ice machine guy told me when i was buying the ice maker for our fraternity house back in college.
How much is the kid paying for the ice maker? Get what you want.
Want to get a new push mower. Is there a consensus on top brand? I've been using a 20 year old mower the former owners left here.
I'm happy with my Honda. Had it a few months.
Last I checked, Honda was the best. Toro won't be as good as Honda, but for the price (50-60% of Honda price), they have pretty reliable equipment. I've had my Toro for 13 years now with no issues.
I’ll add to the mower discussion that I have a Lawn Boy gas mower that I bought in 2016. Has never needed anything outside of routine maintenance like cleaning air filter and topping off the oil. Still starts on first pull. Think it cost me $350 at the time
I currently have a Toro Timemaster and that thing is a beast.
Toros can have a Honda engine
Wife was complaining that her bathroom sink was draining slowly. Well, sherlock holmes took the case.
In 28 years i had never had to snake a drain. Within one month of living with my now wife that changed quickly.
I figured it was just gunk in the p trap. Cleaned mine and thought, man this was easy. Slid on over to hers and entered a goddamn warzone
The gloves are a nice touch to emphasize to her how gross she is
Ned put on his hazmat suit
why is a Moen shower cartridge $88 on moen.com but Moen sells the exact same cartridge on Amazon for $40
For the people that are willing to order it directly off the website and do not know better.
We're thinking about building a pool house that my mom could live in when we have kids. Does this quote look good to you?
We have about 150k cash, but I'd like to finance it, even if it's only over 5 years. I looked at some HELOC's and not many places are doing it right now. Anyone have suggestions on that as well?
I wonder what impact (if any) rising rates will have on the renovation timelines and prices? Will people be more inclined to renovate than move vs. will there be a lull because you don't have as many flippers and people making upgrades in anticipation of selling.
Between a likely economic lag and new code adoption cycle, I've never been more happy to be more renovation/addition focused. As efficiency codes strengthen, building new homes is only going to get more expensive and less creative. Looking at the second half of my career, I think we're in a good spot. I will share that in the short term, lead times on windows and doors have come down pretty drastically. Prices haven't and won't, but at least we're not waiting a year for stuff.
Really appreciate your insights into all of these types of conversations. I think you help a lot of us both (1) not get ripped off and (2) act as better customers with our local contractors by diffusing some of the wide gulf of unknown and distrust
Is lumber market weakening?
Well, we are getting older….
Both dimensional and Engineered lumber products are still up 5 fold over 2-3 years ago. I keep waiting for the bottom to fall out (several big projects at our home planned), but it hasn't. Fuel costs aren't helping. OTR truckers are putting $1200 worth of diesel a day in the truck. Hurricane season also historically inflates the OSB market markedly.
