    Post Frame Construction Home

    I've been in several homes built this way. They all had unusual bypass issues, particularly at the floor platforms. How do you reduce thermal bridging when you replace slim studs with chunky columns?

    Are nudes allowed here?

    square footage

    I have commented on square footage a couple of times. On every occasion my gut tells me the actual square footage is significantly different then the listing or the tax data. I actually instructed one client to grieve their tax assessment, the assessors nearly doubled the size of the building.

    Crappy drill press

    Get out the Granger catalog, or watch the curb for a free bicycle. Either way, you're looking at a repower.

    Antique Meter

    That is very much like the meter in my house when I bought it. A new service was part of my 203k, and the power company wouldn't let me keep it.
  6. Because adults are allowed to think for themselves, and enter into contracts for things they wish to purchase (or not purchase in this case). Legislating what must be purchased is an overreach that seldom turns out well for the purchaser.

    Roof rack for ladder

    Just snapped this cool set up on an Isuzu Rodeo. Maybe you can find some inspiration.
  8. I'll see your crawlspace and raise you an open sewer pipe.

    Tree growing around the neutral wire

    The tree has been removed. That's a log.😉 It's very likely the utility, or their contractor, is the party responsible for leaving it.

    HI Artography - Recent images

    At first glance on my phone, the RTUs looked like zambonis on an ice rink. Or, maybe I spent too much time in the sun today.

    bad smell under sink and in base cabinets

    You said cottage. Is it over a crawlspace? I bet its nasty down there.

    Spray Foam in penetrations

    I bet all the work boxes look like that. When I foamed my addition I taped the boxes to avoid this.

    Poor airflow in Air conditioner

    Change your filter.

    flashlight bulbs

    My grandmother always gave us socks and underwear for Christmas. It's a tradition I carry on with my kids. Far from the only gifts they get, but they always get them.
