re: New Construction Home Purchase - Libertariantiger
You could surely get multiple trades out to inspect certain things, but that is why inspection services exist. If you have a good one, I recommend APro on the North shore, they will check it all for one fee. Things like electrical, an inspector or electrician will inspect the same way. They inspect ...

re: New Construction Home Purchase - Libertariantiger
Few things I can think of as a builder. 1. Framing- you can bring a 4' level and check exterior walls. Also get in the attic and have someone look at bracing with you. If those things are good, it's probably good. 2. Hire a home inspector to check the HVAC and electrical. 3. Use your eyeballs to...

re: Banned photos from North Korea - Libertariantiger
Part of that is true. In Germany and Japan there were surrenders and plans to rebuild. Even though Japan kept it's leader, their attitude was defeated and he got in line with us to keep his power. We have major bases and helped rebuild those nations. That's the opposite outcome of the war in Korea. ...

re: Banned photos from North Korea - Libertariantiger
The photos are horrible. Not to say they did or didn't have it coming, but we played a large role in where NK is today. We basically bombed them to oblivion. We killed an estimated one million people in the war, 60% civilians. After we annihilated all their major cities, we blew up their bridges and...

re: Question about fireplaces for people who have built a house - Libertariantiger
Hey bud, I'm a builder. What's your budget? A base 36" is what is in most builder grade included items. If you want to ball out, get a 42" with a blower. It will heat most your home, but will probably run you about 3k. Masonry products/Foster Taylor is a great place to look. Have the plumber put...

re: What possible reasons are there for a TV to turn on by itself? - Libertariantiger

re: Do any parents out there wish they didn't have kids? - Libertariantiger
Kids are awesome. I love having mine around. No part of taking care of them or being more tied down with them has been a let down. But...... It changes your marriage relationship way more than when you get married. Marriage with no kids is almost like being engaged. Once you have kids your wife go...

re: On average, what is a residential General Contactors fee/percent? - Libertariantiger
I believe people should do hard bids only with solid agreements with builders. Why would it be in your best interest to pay percent. So one instance, counters, you can absolutely spend $3k or $15k on counters based on the rarity of stone. But you pay the contractor 5x more for that? Crazy. Have him ...

re: Draftsman - Hunting Camp Plans - Flood Insurance Question - Libertariantiger
If I'm not mistaken, top of bottom floor in your flood elevation is conditioned space. Have you ever been to the beach and they have the garage under the home? It's like that. They have a separate line on the flood elevation. They usually make all the walls under non load bearing, but they can be lo...

re: Draftsman - Hunting Camp Plans - Flood Insurance Question - Libertariantiger
You can put in water reliefs and not insure the bottom floor usually. It sounds like you just want to make it thief proof since it's a camp. Treat it like a garage. They basically require holes every so far and you can back them with something like screen material to keep small rats and critter out....

re: Advice on licensing/certifications for remodeling rent homes? - Libertariantiger
Usually they only allow you to do work on your own home that you live in. The permitting process will have you fill out an affidavit saying you intent to live there etc. Your best bet is going to be do minor enough repairs to not require a permit. ...
