A/C units in new home roof - Rev1897 on 7/11/15 at 8:49 am
So we're struggling with the appropriate place to put our two new A/C units for our custom home.

re: Picking up real estate at a tax sale? - Rev1897 on 5/1/15 at 10:13 pm

re: Post Tension Slab - Rev1897 on 4/12/15 at 6:08 pm
As an update: I have gotten plans from my engineer which include the option for Post-Tension or Conventional. I am also driving a ton of pilings. The cost difference isn't that much (probably about $2,000), so it's really just up to how I feel. Right now i'm leaning toward Conventional. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
