I would get single speed outside unit with a variable furnace/air handler. Use the savings to upgrade the insulation to spray foam.
You'll get enhanced dehumidification with the variable speed blower ramp up. The furnace running at single stage in our climate is good too as the furnaces are ove...

The city is the first step. The school district won't be far behind.

You get to vote to form your own city. The school district still requires approval from the state AND requires a 50% +1 margin within the boundaries of the existing district. [/quote]

The anti-St George crowd is fooling themselves if they think taxes aren't going up in BR. Taxes rarely go down. They may not get any sales tax increases but they sure as hell can get property taxes passed since there are many non-property owners in the city limits (look at how great the CATS tax w...

It's impossible to tell who is in the right or wrong with only one side of the story.
Fact is you've got two knuckleheads who aren't even smart enough to pen an agreement on who is doing what on the back of a napkin and both sides are bewildered when it goes downhill from there.

This is simple. Move on w/new architect and proceed to construction drawings.
You're not going to end up as friends anyway and you can't "make" anyone do anything especially without a contract.
FWIW most people want something signed and paid upfront to do preliminary design because of situati...

The lower aperture, improved sensor, and dual LED flash do quite well for low light photos.

Works great until you need a meter or or have to get the power company involved. Then they have you by he short hairs.
It's a shame all of the hard earned money spent on permits results in such a poorly managed inspection system that yields little, if any benefits to the end user.

I'm not a big fan of tapcons, they are very easy to strip out and won't hold as much as other methods.
I would recommend lag shields and lag bolts. The shields expand and you can use a larger diameter lag bolt. You may be able to lay out the holes to fall at or near the mortar joints.

I have always had macs but use pcs at work.
I generally find the Mac less crash prone and I spend less time trying to fix them.
I typically can keep my personal macs for 8+ years and still run a supported OS and still be useful (my current is a 2007 iMac that still runs great).

Sedgehammer works well but you need to apply twice 2 weeks apart. In my experience manage/image is not as effective as Sedgehammer.
