That must be what it's like for my wife to be married to me.

"Yeah, looks nice."

Re: A&E's House


I have a buddy that went to the bank and got a loan to build his house.
In the loan,he included a small hourly wage , to pay himself ,while building his own house.
Just enough to keep the bills at bay .
He would work Monday-Friday and take that weekend off, just like his real job.

In the end , he built his house , didn't have his bills get behind and ,kept a marriage. Plus the house got built in a short timeframe .

You'll put the addition on and decide the rest of the house needs a total re-do
No way. I'm disturbing as little of the rest of the house as possible. I love the bull nose corners.....drywall is not my forte

I have a spare condensing unit and A-coil but it's R-22...Do I go ahead and swap it out or bite the bullet and spend a couple of G's on a new one?..R-22 is gettin phased out.....I've been battling with what to do....Don't really have the money for a new system...plus I'd probably have to buy a new furnace w/ the system....which I won't use cause I have a wood burner for the winter

I know, I have round base corners at home.
But the 3 piece crown really bugs me...

And I used tall base at home and didn't scribe it to the uneven floors.I'm a F@#%in' hack too...

They were offering rebates to get you to switch. Yeah phuck that for now. Mine is a split level hard to cool w/2 ton. The foyer from basement floor to ceiling is 16+ feet....real phucking heat trap

What to do ...What to do

2 portables ...one up one down 12,000 BTU's each...that's 24k BTU...that's 2 ton.....about 1100 vs 5k

I got the tall ceilings too, way overrated, waste of money to cool.
The only nice thing about getting a new ac unit is you could go with a heat pump unit for heating and cooling and lose the dammm gas furnace...

Ain't no gas around these parts unless you want that big ugly tank in your yard. All electric....ever try to heat a 1500+ sq ft house with electric?...it's a joke...that's why I put in a wood stove....Plus i get plenty of firewood free

right now though I'm tired of sweating like a farm hand in certain areas of the house
