re: Anyone worked with their dad growing up? - LSUengr
Yep, from about 11-14 yrs old I spent summers on residential construction sites in Zachary. Mostly clean up duty and runner for materials. Dad was a carpenter back then in the days when carpenters did the forming, framing, cabinets and trim. No specialists like now. Most of the houses were on large ...

re: How does one legally build a home in the middle of a coastal marsh? - LSUengr
[quote]. I think we could build whatever we want as no one really enforces anything. Haven’t looked at the lease in a while. If we lose the lease, we lose the structure to the owner.[/quote] Same for us in Venice. Except prior to the last 6-8 years, the lease was basically yearly. Now its 5 years...

re: Anyone Build a House Themselves? (Permitting) - LSUengr
[quote]I guess it's the trade unions that have this shite locked down so hard?[/quote] That is most of it. Some of it is also the fact that most people don't know current code requirements. It stops the inspectors from spending an inordinate amount of time inspecting stuff not close to code. Lu...

re: Is a ridiculously low fare worth taking one of the trash airlines? - LSUengr
Definitely worth it. Just be aware of the extras. I fly the wife and kids on them regularly one way while I drive. Then we drive back together. That way, no luggage or carry ons for extra fees. They aren't as trashy as people make them out to be, but extras/cancellations can be an issue. We've neve...
