re: Home Standby Generators - captainahab
"Running" the AC is not the problem, it is the start up of the central unit (not portable). I think the majority of the whole home generators have switching and load management intelligence. When the power goes out, the smart switch can do a load manage and control what units come on and when. Fo...

re: Whole House Generator Location? - captainahab
A follow-up to close this thread out..... When I called to schedule an appt. with the generator guy last week, he told me over the phone that a "typical" install (gas line, power, etc.) runs between $3K and $5K. Since my gas was on the opposite side of my power, I was prepared for the high end. ...

re: Whole House Generator Location? - captainahab
Thanks for all the replies. After reading the comments, doing some measuring and taking into account aesthetics, windows, noise, etc, I think I’m going to get bent over in install costs. Looks like my best option is to bore a gas line to my back yard then run electrical from there (thru the ...

Whole House Generator Location? - captainahab
Have a meeting with generator guy tomorrow. Electric meter on one side of house and gas on the other side. One story house. I know I am screwed in terms of installation cost. I’m assuming they will want the generator next to the gas meter then run the electric up the wall, through the attic, the...

re: Major Waitr changes may have affects to area restaurants - captainahab
[quote]The new terms prohibit restaurants from charging a higher price for food ordered through Waitr [/quote] That’s what I have a problem with. Waitr shouldn’t be able to control the prices. One of my buddies has a fairly popular restaurant and he won’t use them. Liquor has always had a big...

re: Land near Baton Rouge Country Club sold for $1.3M; $500k+ homes to be built on site - captainahab
Canebrake Builders are one of the four/five builders that are allowed to build in The Preserve at Harveston. Bo Fetzer (COO) of Canebrake and Wampold are the developers of Harveston. Sounds like they are going to build Harveston type homes in there (similar price point, similar sq ft size, and...

re: Audit reveals numerous issues at Uhigh - captainahab
[quote]The governor’s son goes to UHigh.[/quote] That may explain it but on the other hand (as another poster eluded to), he must have not agreed with the findings of the Legislative Auditor or had a lack of confidence in their process? Still seems a bit strange to me to make a call (or calls)...

[quote]It's now listed at $4.995MM, that's a pretty huge drop. [/quote] Dropped another $1M. Creditors want it gone. One of you ballers need to step up to the plate. If it drops another million it will be close to 1/3 of original listing price. ...

Grant (Cannatella) is a great cook. Make sure you try his seasoning called Mr. Grants. Anytime I was close to Melville, I would stop and buy several containers. I personally like it much better than Tony's. [link=(https://www.facebook.com/Cannatellas/photos/cannatellas-is-proud-to-introduce-mr...
