  1. Supporting roof, ceiling, and one center bearing floor, the IRC says that 2 2x4's can span 27 inches. with a 50# snow load. Where you are, they can span 32 inches. 3 2x4's aren't in the chart but they're likely up to that task. Look at the plans.
  2. So Mike, do you have any mushrooms left?
  3. Me again, I covered passive voice, basic punctuation, misplaced modifiers (thanks to Bonnie Trenga's book), third person and run-ons. What common issues do you folks see that drive you nuts?
  4. All 83 rooms of the hotel are blocked for us. I made the deposit on the meeting room which will definitely accommodate us (it's enormous). We're blessed with Kibbel and Katen and, on the last day, I'll do my best to keep people in their seats. A visit to the Henry to meet the staff and see the facility left me totally wowed.. It's truly fantastic. Great food, great drinks and a beautifully and respectfully restored interior. If you friends would, please take a look at our website- surf around. If you're pretty sure you're coming, will you please let us know? You can sign up on the website (whether you pay or not). If you don't pay, I'll send a reminder in late November at which time it'd be great if you commit or decline. Even if you're on the fence, take a look at the website The Inspector Roadshow™!
  5. Also a fan of Schluter stuff for de-coupling, but when I just need membrane, I use ProVa.
  6. I was going to post something, but now I forgot. I figured it was a conspiracy. Thank you, Mike
  7. I am grateful to Impaler of Horizons for reviving this thread. I'm writing a course on report writing and this provides fodder. In spite of my gratitude, I cannot help but think, Impaler of Horizons? WITAF is that all about? We're home inspectors, pretty much any nom de guerre will suffice. May I suggest Bruce?
  8. It's a sad state of affairs when one has to settle for "doesn't suck".
  9. I'm presenting at KREIA this fall and I need to do 3 hours on report writing. Truthfully, I could probably find enough material in my own reports (both good and bad) to use, but it'd be way better if some of you shared a report or two with me. I have a lot of confidence in this group's abilities and skills. I will cleanse your content and redact any identifying information for both you and your clients. If you would, please send them to me chad@structuresmart.com If you think it's too much trouble, think about about me... I have to read home inspection reports from people who are likely to be better writers than me.
  10. I've seen that video 5 or 6 times before. I watched it again. There is something elegant about large mass rotating in almost friction-less babbet bearings.
  11. I don't dislike this flashlight. I hate this flashlight. It gets hot- uncomfortably hot. It has a single button for all functions. To turn it on, you have to hold the button for exactly 1/2 of a second and then release it. Then you have to cycle up through 5 steps to full brightness. If you hold the button for 6/10's of a second when you try to turn it on, the light goes to strobe. Twice, I've had to re-boot it by disconnecting the battery to get it to work. Oddly, the claimed 1600 lumens is drowned out by the 1,000 lumens of my UC35. The only redeeming features are its small size and the magnetic charging.
