  1. Sorry, I don't speak bullshit. Could you explain *exactly* what it is that you plan to do?

  2. I think the porch is fine the way it is. Invest in some good landscaping for crying out loud. It'll do way more for the house than a bunch of pointless concrete.

  3. Taping the joints was never recommended or required. In fact, with listed B-vents it's prohibited - always has been. If we're talking about a Category I furnace (hot exhaust) there should be negative pressure in the vent anyway - never positive pressure. That's part of the definition of a Category I furnace. The furnace motor does not "push" the exhaust through. The exhaust rises by buoyancy, creating negative pressure behind it. The draft inducer (the thing you're calling the furnace motor) only serves to draw a regulated amount of air across the burners - it does not "push" air through

  4. That's spider debris. The small separation at the top of the window shouldn't be related to insects. Is the window flashed on the outside?

  5. I wrote a report on the internal combustion engine when I was in fourth grade. I recently re-read it after finding it in a box of junk. On every level, it was better than that piece of crap.

  7. Jim, I think this might represent a springboard booster that could lift the whole team to a level never dreamed about before our team leader woke up that morning with such a great idea. PM me for a link to permission to access ever increasing horizons of opportunity!

  8. It's not so much a stairway as it is series of sidewalk segments that accommodate the change in elevations. Just keep the riser and tread dimensions consistent.

  9. It's pretty damn wrong. I'd certainly tell them to get it fixed.

  10. Years of experience means nothing here. If you're going to be disrespectful, take your great knowledge of HI elsewhere.

  11. Looks like general dust & debris sifting out from the gap between the window frame and the window casing. Seriously? It's just as easy to omit flashing on an Anderson window as it is on any other window.
