re: Can someone explain what a payroll tax cut means exactly? - Sheepdog1833 on 8/7/20 at 7:10 pm
Depends on what percentage is stated in the executive order. On average it’s about 8% of your earnings. Plus businesses would save the same percentage as they have to match those contributions. ...

re: What’s everyone’s opinion on Generation Kill? - Sheepdog1833 on 7/26/20 at 1:14 pm
From personal experience, I find the series to be fairly accurate. Admittedly I haven’t seen it since it first came out. I know in this country we typically have a high reverence for our military, but the population mimics the general population. Sometimes you’ll see virtuosos in the lower enlis...

Restoring/refinishing interior concrete floors - Sheepdog1833 on 7/7/20 at 10:08 pm
Anyone have experience with this? My floors are about five years old are dull as shite. I’m pretty sure it was waxed after being stained. What’s the process here to restore them? What’s the cost?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)
re: Undeveloped land questions - Sheepdog1833 on 7/6/20 at 3:06 pm
I live close to where you are building. I commented on your other post on the HG board. Electricity is a bit of a crap shoot as far as cost. Best thing is to call WST and get an engineer out to assess. He will tell you exactly what you’ll have to pay if anything. We had them pull a line undergroun...

re: Building on undeveloped land in St. Tammany - Sheepdog1833 on 7/4/20 at 9:30 am
I built five years ago in STP Typically I would find a separate contractor to do the land clearing and pad prep etc. However, your home contractor should be able to add that to his project. Cost will vary widely depending on what trees you have, can you burn it haul off, how much material needs to ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Presmoking a brisket? - Sheepdog1833 on 6/19/20 at 6:13 pm
I’d like to make a brisket for my dad for Father’s Day. He lives a couple hours away and we are meeting around lunchtime. Is there a process for this that doesn’t involve cooking overnight? Happy Father’s Day to all of you hooligans. ...

re: Can I fix this absolute catastrophe by sloping some masonry sand and St. Aug Sod? - Sheepdog1833 on 5/26/20 at 7:03 am
If you are going to dig next to the ditch at the street especially with an excavator with little to no experience, call 811 (LA OneCall) to get them to mark the utilities. They’ll need I think 72 hours to mark. Also, you may need to call the parish to mark the water line and sewer house connections....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Cement finishing price - Sheepdog1833 on 5/25/20 at 1:25 pm
I pay my guys around $220 a day. That’s probably high but I can get them whenever I need them. What are the actual dimensions of the slab? How is the concrete getting to the project area? Who is striking it off? Is it a one man or two man or more job will be determined by thees answers. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Flipping houses as sole income? - Sheepdog1833 on 5/21/20 at 11:39 am
I co-own a heavy construction company that had taken a hit over the last 18 months and a huge one recently because of the shutdown. And truth be told it isn’t exciting to me after 20 years in the business. I’m looking into flipping houses at first as a supplemental income then going full time. I...

Pressure Canner Rec? - Sheepdog1833 on 5/20/20 at 3:16 pm
I have a friend that is overflowing with green beans this season and I’d like to can them mostly fresh, some pickled. I’ve never canned before. Any Rec’s for a pressure canner? Secondarily, how long can these beans last after being picked before I can them?...
