Re: Need Help With Site Prep, Received Quotes, More Confused

In your area, you'll need a proper foundation if you are going to build a stick-built building. So, if you put down a pad first and then come back later to do a building, you'll have to completely...

Re: Need Help With Site Prep, Received Quotes, More Confused

No. If you have a building already in place, with foundations, etc.; that's one thing. But if you are building a new structure, that's an entirely different ballgame. Building an entirely new...

Re: pex and control joints

I have stated nothing of the sort, nor would I ever exploit my lack of education or experience for public sympathy.

Experience is worthless currency on the internet, where everything in print...

Re: Epoxy Anchors - Help Needed please

Yea, on a two post, there is constant tension on the outer bolts as the posts feel an inward bending with the load on them. The forward or rear bolts can also be in tension if the load is unbalanced...

Re: Need Help With Site Prep, Received Quotes, More Confused

+1 The planning stages are not when you start digging.

BTW - Are you upstate or downstate. If upstate, you won't be able to do much with a bobcat until April. (Maybe march if this weather keeps...

Re: Can Someone Recommend a Toilet?

Well, the $2500 version does the majority of those things. The $10,000 one adds industrial disinfection. I recall there is a happy ending version, but they aren't allowed to sell that one in the...

Re: Can Someone Recommend a Toilet?

Here's a $10,000 one. But - maybe you can find one on sale? Can you believe for that price, you can only get it in one color???

Re: Can Someone Recommend a Toilet?

So... how much do you want to pay. I can recommend a great toilet for $250. I can also recommend a really really great one for $2500.

Re: pex and control joints

Take another look. It says "Construction, Expansion

Re: Lighting Input on 32X24 Garage

If you are going to do that, I'd definitely drop them below the rails, so they don't scatter the light. But - I agree with you. I think having the lights hanging from a vaulted ceiling would be a...

Totally. Given what's involved in repairing a leak, this is great/cheap insurance to get.

You are right to be concerned about walking on the mesh. That won't work for your concrete contractor. Even if they try, the chairs will concentrate the forces on your foam (unlike when you walk on...

Re: can I squeeze in one more double pole or am I hosed?

Ouch. Didn't see that one coming and the though of such a diabolical device (full-house electric heat) didn't even cross my mind.

Definitely need to go geothermal in that case! :)

Re: can I squeeze in one more double pole or am I hosed?

A 400A panel or a 400A service? I have both. The former is nice. The later is ludicrous. (My electrician talked me in to it due to the dual commercial/residential zoning of my property.)

If you are doing the entire floor, you will be glad you went out and rented a shotblaster: http://www.concretenetwork.com/surface-preparation-buyers-guide/shotblasters.html
