re: Anybody built a house lately? - lsujro
[quote]Except for materials that have actually advanced (like electrical), everything about my 80yr old house is better designed than a new house. When I need something done, I am forced to do it myself most of the time, because contractors do things to today's code [/quote] agree. only issue is...

re: Car Buying 101 - lsujro
if you're set on tahoe, i'd go for a cpo 2016 model. could be had for ~35k pretty easily. i have a 2015 and am very pleased with it so far....

re: Building a house.. any recs on where to buy stuff? - lsujro
if you are doing large orders from hd, they will give you a decent discount. go to the contractor's counter and talk to them about it. i did a couple when remodeling my house and it saved me a bit. also as others said, get lowes 10% off coupons online. another money saver is to buy gift cards online...

re: Pickup truck recommendation - lsujro
[quote]Browncoatrebel[/quote] it doesn't make much sense to bring a $60k truck to cruise around alaska in. buy something used. also a 4wd suv will get better traction in snow due to weight in rear. you'd honestly probably be better off with a late model subaru than a 60k ram :lol:...

re: I always file through Turbo tax, but this year's filing was a little different - lsujro
[quote]jptiger2009[/quote] the house alone usually won't get you above the standard deduction. it is hit or miss for me depending on the year. one thing to check out: if you bought a car, you probably paid more in sales tax than state income tax. you can deduct that. it got me over the hump for 2...

[quote]Does anyone forsee a time of a major correction in housing prices or is the value pretty fairly priced? [/quote] BR prices have been crazy for at least the last 10 years. i'm not sure there will be the sort of localized correction that would get them down to prices in comparable cities. ...

re: Advice on whether to buy a house. - lsujro
I'll be contrary to some on this board and say it doesn't sound like a terrible idea. You already have furnishings to fill an apartment, which means you have what you need to live in the house for a while until you can afford to furnish it like you want. Also, roommates will likely each have some it...

how are you shipping them? i'm somewhat ignorant on shipping costs, but i'd imagine something in the ballpark of $5 would cover basic USPS shipping for something that small. maybe offer faster shipping for a higher rate? ...

re: Etsy business sellers/buyers - lsujro
agree with others re arbitrary shipping fee. i don't mind it, but don't charge me for your time to package an item that you are selling me. that's my biggest grip with eBay. seems like everyone either selling with $10+ shipping, or price is way too high with free shipping. i have bought small it...
