    HI Artography - The Thaw

    Funny, Les. My eyes are autistic when it comes to "seeing" art. I can admire it but can't usually discern it without someone like Mike pointing it out.
  3. I've always found it odd that we dig a round hole in the ground, call it a well, and expect it to produce water. Then we dig a square hole in the ground, call it a basement, and expect it to stay dry.

    You do realize, DuoMit, that this post is almost a year old without any responses, right?

    I'm jealous of your artistic eye!

    Cost Estimates

    I'm with Jim. If I know an approximate, I'll tell them. If I don't, I'll tell them I don't and to get a contractor to give them some estimates. People are hiring us for advice and guidance about their home. Why wouldn't we provide all we can. Granted, some inspectors can't provide any advice or guidance other than "Recommend a ___________ further evaluate ______________." But still take their money.

    This ladder still OK?

    I'd think that, as long as the pins are properly locked in their holes, it isn't going anywhere.

    This is COOL

    HI Artography - Gargoyle

    Ah Les, your choice of reminders is - fitting - sarcastic - humorous. Something like that.

    Roof Part Name?

    Thank you for the answers, Jim & Bill. I'd forgotten about this post from last year. Dragging up memories!

    Raised stair nosing

    This place is always good for a chuckle or two and sometimes a downright loud belly laugh!
  12. There's always that one dang grammar nazi hanging around, huh Jerry. "Neoprene (also polychloroprene or pc-rubber) is a family of synthetic rubbers that are produced by polymerization of chloroprene. Neoprene exhibits good chemical stability and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range." My apologies for not being so specific as to include the word "synthetic' in front of rubber in my post. 😁 😁 😁
  13. Seen a bunch of lead flashings chewed up by squirrels. Though it seems to take longer than it takes for the rubber ones to dry rot.
