re: Neatest thing you have built? - LSUengr
Did the other pieces end up matching after you refinished them?...

re: Neatest thing you have built? - LSUengr
Both times I have built them, I have just used off the shelf bag mix from big box store. I put chicken wire in the middle for some reinforcememt. I used my wife's handheld back messager to vibrate mine. Worked pretty good. Buddy of mine uses a handheld vibrating sander. Use a cement slurry without a...

re: Neatest thing you have built? - LSUengr
I built a frame with 2x10 for the pieces connecting the headboard and footboard. Put 8-2x4 runners between. Going to put some pegboard on top of that so mattress won't sag but can breath. Trying out the Casper memory foam....

re: Neatest thing you have built? - LSUengr
Concrete countertops are fairly straightforward. Making sure the concrete is vibrated enough but not too much so that is settles aggregate to top is key. We use melamine sheets to use for the mold with black silicone in the seems to make rounded corners on the top....

re: Public goose hunting - LSUengr
Don't know about western side, but it is possible in Venice. Uncle and his friends used to shoot them from time to time few years back. We killed 2 last year over our duck decoys. Had a group of 75 circle our pond multiple times last year and they wanted to land so bad. Decoys and a call may hav...

re: Coastal Zone opening wknd role call - LSUengr
Don't know what the deal is. Baptiste is loaded. Everyone we know up there slaughtered them. We rode yesterday for hours and saw 200 ducks all day down river....

re: Coastal Zone opening wknd role call - LSUengr
They must not be in the pass a loutre WMA. 2 ducks on 4 hunters. Biologist had 24 hunters so far with 54 ducks. Just over 2 per person. They aren't on state land down in venice....

re: Good compound bow set for 8 yo boy - LSUengr
With that budget, try the archery talk classifieds. Got my 12 year old daughter a parker buckshot with 2 different sets of limbs for a great price. Allowed her to start low and then we replaced the limbs as she got stronger. Can get gently used quality bows without breaking the bank....

re: New Regulations for Mud Boats - Pass a Loutre WMA - LSUengr
We hunt out of mud boats and pirogue/kayak so won't really affect us. Should help let the birds settle a little. Early season, there are a ton of people who run around all afternoon scouting and running the birds up. It may push more people up towards Baptiste since there is no restriction up the...

re: Seven point euro mount pic - LSUengr
Had two free tickets on 15 yard line, 10 rows up. Had to turn them down since we are taking kids for youth weekend in Mississippi. I told them they better know how much I love them to turn down those tickets for LSU vs Alabama!...

re: opening weekend Duck predictions - LSUengr
Just glad they can't run around after 2 pm at least down in the WMA. Will hopefully stop some of them from even coming down. I am perfectly content in the bay boat and pirogue....

re: Water Clarity in Venice - LSUengr
If the river stays below 5, should be clear enough by then. It has been near 5 for a while, but has bee due yo-yoing due to rains in the midwest. Looks like it may stay down after this little rise passes in the next few days....

re: Scalping Tickets - LSUengr
Depends on how many you need. If a single, will be easy to come by on game day 15 minutes before kick off. I haven't paid more than $50 for a single ticket in the lower bowl in the last 5 years, Bama included. People get desperate when they are walking into the stadium....

re: DIY friendly home builders - LSUengr
Lending requiremento are tighter now. They may not allow that to happen. The last two I have done, I had a contractor to an estimate to give to the bank. Those were in BR though we're I couldn't self contract anyway. Would have to see if the banks would do construction loan if self contracted....

re: DIY friendly home builders - LSUengr
Took me 4.5 months. Had $40k in cash from sale of my first house. Had a conventional construction loan from Whitney bank. Had a local drafter draw plans from a floor plan I found myself. Appraiser for the bank did the appraisal and loan value was 80% of that value. Ascension allows self contracted b...

re: DIY friendly home builders - LSUengr
To build for $75/ft(without the lot), you will have to do more than just finishing work. I built a 2,000 sf house in Prairieville in 2006. I did it for $74/ft, but that was self-contracted. I formed the slab myself, did all the a/c work including rough in, trimmed it, painted it including staining...

re: Explosion/loud noise Tiger Bend area - LSUengr
They are not very deep at that location. Had to heavily mat them when carriagewood mitigation areas were dug. I agree about the leak though. Hard to make a pipeline explode like that. Info may be bad but came from a source who lives around the corner from there....
