re: Person shot in Summerwood neighborhood - Crusty
Not flaming...just a discussion... Unlike some, I don’t need a gate for “status”. I couldn’t give a rat’s arse about that. However, I do believe a gate is a deterrent to random/petty and possibly even sometimes serious crime. It keeps the “opportunists” from just taking a stroll or cruise thro...

re: Person shot in Summerwood neighborhood - Crusty
[quote]A gate won't do anything but cost you money.[/quote] I'm not sure if you are serious or not? So you don't believe that a locked gate at the front of a neighborhood would discourage any of this crime at all? So all of the gated communities that we have around the country are just wrong? T...

[quote]Ill say again Public streets............no gate[/quote] I'm not following you here. There are gated communities all over that were once "public" streets so it does happen. In fact, my MIL lives in one of these private communities now...which was originally a "public" street. So I'm not...

re: Masons of the OT...can I install a brick "seating" wall on an existing patio? - Crusty
I still find it hard to believe that such a small wall would require so much support. Then again, the OT knows thus the reason I came here. Thanks guys. ...

re: Masons of the OT...can I install a brick "seating" wall on an existing patio? - Crusty
The existing patio is basically 20’ x 25’ and it was added after the house was already built so there really is nothing tying it into the existing slab that I am aware of. I was out of town when the patio was actually poured, but I did see it framed up and I don’t recall any footings going around t...

re: Masons of the OT...can I install a brick "seating" wall on an existing patio? - Crusty
[quote]CarRamrod[/quote] So you are saying that the existing slab should be able to support this weight...assuming the soil conditions underneath the slab can? So, if I cut/dig a trench to put this brick wall in there...that too will depend strictly on the soil conditions? Sorry, I am just a li...

re: Masons of the OT...can I install a brick "seating" wall on an existing patio? - Crusty
Thank you for all of the input guys (and nice drawing Junkfunky). It is actually a combination of an outside edge (which would be ok to build an additional footing as soon as I move irrigation lines), but it would also come across my slab right next to some steps. I didn't want to have to demo t...

Masons of the OT...can I install a brick "seating" wall on an existing patio? - Crusty
I have an existing patio (about 4" thick) that has been poured about a year now. Is that strong enough for me to build a 20 foot long by 1 foot wide x 2 foot tall seating wall on top of? Or would I need to bust up the concrete and pour some additional footings for this wall? Is there a site that ...

[quote]Enjoy your depreciating value[/quote] This is such horse shite and it comes up in every single pool thread we have. A pool can add or a pool can take away from the value of your home. There are a lot of variables that factor into this. Size of house. Cost of pool in relation to house. C...

re: Can anyone recommend a company to move and setup a billiard table? - Crusty
It was somewhere between $300 and $350. I don't remember how much was the actual move and how much was the addition of the new felt. You can call them. They quoted me right over the phone. ...

re: Can anyone recommend a company to move and setup a billiard table? - Crusty
I had a pool table moved and set up by Big T about 6 months ago. The two guys moved it, changed the felt and installed it upstairs. They did a fantastic job. Everything was done safely, no damage and the table rolls true. I would highly recommend them. ...

re: Who pays for cracks in a new home construction? - Crusty
Thanks guys. I will start by reviewing the contract. Then I will follow that up by filing a lawsuit against the forests. Next...a certified letter to my GC asking him to fix the cracks. If none of these work, then I'll grab some spackle, a tall ladder and some Cialis. ...

Who pays for cracks in a new home construction? - Crusty
Yes, I have the contract at home and I will review it when I get there…but in the meantime, does anyone know if the contractor is typically responsible to fix any cracks caused by a new construction settling over the last 12 months? Throughout the house, you can see cracks in trim work where the tr...
