Re: What does the pressure test of my water line mean ?

^ Just had an idea. You could tap in to the pre-pump and post-pump water and have a valve at the house to choose which one you are sending to the barn. You could then use the low pressure washer...

Re: What does the pressure test of my water line mean ?

Then, I'd just put a pressure gauge on a hose bib at your house, measure the pressures with your pump on and see what your house pressure is. Your barn will get +43 more with a little loss from...

Re: Ideas on trusses.

You need a scissor truss as 10' walls with a flat ceiling isn't going to make you happy with a lift.

Can you press the 20' dimension out, also? I was in a 20'-ish garage with my Firebird and...

Re: is it worth insulating a ceiling with can lights?

True



Not True. If it was, why would we blow it in? We could just stuff compressed bricks of the stuff in our attic.




I think you may be confusing this with eliminating voids and...

Re: Wall Covering above overhead doors

^ This shoudn't be an issue unless the wood is really thick. The door should already stick away from the wall a bit and the only pinch should be right where the wall and the doors meet.

The door...

Re: Vertical Garage Doors & Lighting

I guess if you run this way, then the first opener would turn the light off once its timer expired. So, if you opened the first door, then opened the second door a few minutes later - even if you...

Re: Vertical Garage Doors & Lighting

The 8500 comes with a remote light that you can plug in anywhere. When you trigger the opener, it remotely triggers the light on and off. You can also get multiple extra lights to plug in to work...

Re: Gluing Wood To Concrete

Re: Using engineered wood I beam for roof of garage to increase clearance

That will definitely make things less expensive because the beam over your door will only have to support the loading of 1/8 or less of the roof. The other way, you'd support 1/4 of the roof loads. ...

Re: Wall Covering above overhead doors

I'm facing the exact same situation but have not started, yet.

Your tracks are angled away from the wall, so the door should pull away as it raises.

I'll be using drywall, but you should be...

Re: Using engineered wood I beam for roof of garage to increase clearance

This may be difficult to do economically, depending on your options with those particular beams.

Re: Gluing Wood To Concrete

I assume that this is because you want to preserve the option to remove the wall in the future?

Construction adhesive will never ever really "come off." You'd have to grind the stuff away and...

Re: Need help with concrete anchors

You have the answer to the epoxy question, above. Your instructions also spec 90 ft lbs. on the bolt torque, so 95 shouldn't be the source of any of your problems.

I would suggest taking a...

Re: is it worth insulating a ceiling with can lights?

My bad on that one. My eyes read the words and then my brain processed the language as air blowing over/across the insulation. Since the cans here are installed in drywall, I wasn't figuring how...

Re: Need help with concrete anchors

What are you torquing to?

Re: is it worth insulating a ceiling with can lights?

Wow. Do you have technical references for this?

BTW - I heard Vitamin C also escapes from orange juice once it sits in a glass, also.

Re: House in the hill

+1 on consulting an engineer on this one. A local pro will probably know how far down you'll need to go to find solid soil. If you have deep sand, the most economical way to get a solid foundation...

Re: Heavy Bag Problems

If you are mid-span on the beam, that's the...

I just built a 4 story house, with 60' walls all out of ICF. 4' lifts would have killed us.
