PSA: Battlestar Galactica is back streaming (Hulu this time) - Rev1897
The re-imagined series, I mean. I am doing a rewatch (much to the chagrin of my wife). You really notice so many things on the second time around that you didn't realize the first time , like the irony of character interactions, a lot of the allusion to what happens at the end. Highly recomme...

Professional Range - Rev1897
Working on new construction in River Ridge. We have 48" for our range + dual ovens. I do not think that we are going to do the Dual Fuel, I think we have decided on the all-gas with convection oven. Currently debating the GE Monogram 48" 6-burner: [link=(http://www.ajmadison.com/cgi-bin/ajmadison...

A/C units in new home roof - Rev1897
So we're struggling with the appropriate place to put our two new A/C units for our custom home. Of course our designer did not leave enough room in either sideyard setback and a variance is not an option. So our options are: put them behind the master bedroom or in the roofline. Does anyone have...

Spray Foam vs. Fiberglass - Rev1897
Looking at insulation on my new construction, it's 3700 living sq. ft. Seems like fiberglass is cheaper, but Foam makes your energy bill less. Heard foam can have problems with moisture, etc. Any recommendations in the NOLA area? Thanks in advance....
