Wife and I are about to start the building process and very confused regarding floors.
We have heard that engineered wood is great for kids, pets, etc. and am considering using it downstairs in our new house. Anyone have any experience with quality brands to target or NOLA outlets with decent sel...

| Money Talk|| Building a House with Lines of Credit - Rev1897 on 11/1/14 at 8:36 am|
Have a family member who offered to put up his home to Get me a line of credit to build mine. I need about $400k for the build.
Any downside to doing this? Will I be able to get a Mortgage when I'm done to pay off his line? Seems like I would save a ton on closing costs and I would be able to sho...
| Tech Board|| Switching from AT&T in New Orleans -- Anyone have TMobile experience? - Rev1897 on 9/12/14 at 9:27 am|
So I've finally figured out AT&T Next and, basically, because I already have the family share plan I get no discounts--just have to pay $32.00/month for a new iPhone.
I'm considering switching, mainly to TMobile or Sprint... Verizon also potential, although Verizon looks more expensive than AT&T....
| Tech Board|| Someone help me with AT&T Next - Rev1897 on 9/11/14 at 12:59 pm|
Is this worth doing? I want to buy a 64GB Iphone 6... it doesn't look like I am eligible for a regular upgrade, just AT&T Next.
Anyone used this before? Seems like you are getting hosed, paying $30 a month for a phone over 18 months, when everyone else gets to sign a new contract and get the phon...
| O-T Lounge|| Golf Board: Pulling up in my golf swing - Rev1897 on 7/16/14 at 10:44 am|
Just started playing a year ago. Am working on mechanics, but getting a lot better. Taken some lessons. My biggest problem seems to be, particularly on my irons, that I am "pulling up," and often top the ball, hit only the ball and never the ground, or miss it entirely.
I just wan...

Appreciate all the help with the ceiling heights in my earlier thread. Meeting with our house designer today. We are planning to build in New Orleans.
We're planning to build about a 4,000 sq foot house. Planning to sub it out myself with some help from family. Anyone recently self-sub and...
| Money Talk|| 10 vs 12 foot ceilings in new construction - Rev1897 on 4/21/14 at 7:41 am|
Wife and I are working on plans with the house designer and downstairs ceiling height is a point of contention. We are building a 4,000sq foot colonial.
We both agree 10 foot is adequate but I am concerned about potential resale... Isn't 10 foot the standard these days?
Wife is concerned that ...

I realize we've had some threads on this already, but none of them were focused on New Orleans.
We have a set of house plans that we already like but would like to make some fairly significant changes. I've heard good things about Hollingsworth Design here in New Orleans, but they are $1/sq. ft....

Gordon and Steamer for Tyson, Metta WP and Beno Udrih.

| Pelicans Talk|| Hilton Armstrong -- Should we? Too late. - Rev1897 on 12/12/13 at 10:29 am|
Still kicking around the league. Signed by the Warriors. Blast from the Hornets past!
Apparently he was tearing it up for the Dub's D-League Affiliate.. Reason number 323 that the Pels need a better relationship with our D-League Affiliate.

I know we get a lot of these threads, but my situation is a bit different.
We are moving from House 1 into House 2, which is an older home on a beautiful lot where we plan to build a new house in the next three years.
House 1 is on the market in a desirable area (River Ridge) but based on the...

Somebody got a hold of my SSN and signed me up for 5 iPhones... One of the receipts came to my father's address and he opened it.
I called the numbers. They are all off. I guess this guy is planning to ship the IPhones over to China or something. Interestingly, there was no request or inquiry fr...

| Money Talk|| Asbestos Tile Roof - Rev1897 on 1/27/13 at 1:14 pm|
Wife and I have found a house that we like, not crazy about it, but mainly because the exterior needs some work.
It's about 3000 sq feet and on a great street, though, so I want to give it a longer look. The price is great, and I think I've figured out why: it has an asbestos tile roof.
| Pelicans Talk|| A Danny Granger deal might make a lot of sense for this team. - Rev1897 on 1/20/13 at 12:02 pm|
According to Chad Ford, he's on the block and the Pacers want a young big man and/or a point guard in return.
We don't really have any salaries that match, other than EG (which works straight up) or Ryno/Aminu/Passquez (which I would rather not do).
So... while he may not be worth our lottery ...
| Pelicans Talk|| Houston waived Scott Machado - Rev1897 on 1/8/13 at 8:48 am|
I know a few on this board were hot for him as an UDFA.... If we hadn't just signed sloan I'd like to see Dell go after him.
Also looks like the Lakers cut Darius Johnson-Odom, both are developmental projects but hey, so is the team. We can always use more guards....
