[quote]How much more are you talking about?[/quote] 4K more. Yes it takes both into account. One child is in pre K so I don’t claim that as dependent care but the other is in day care and I can claim 3k of that. That’s how I claimed on 2020 taxes so nothing should change for 2021. ...

re: Looking for a decent Sound Bar without... - cberni1
I highly recommend the Yamaha yas-207. It’s comparable in price to the other sound bars and has excellent sound in my opinion. There are several settings to dial in sound which I find is better than other sound bars I’ve looked at. ...

I built this one from plans and it took me 2 weekends. I understand your pain. I’d like to think my daughter is in it every day BUT she’s not so I go in it and have a beer to make myself feel better and money and time spent. [img][url=https://ibb.co/LNDY4hg][img]https://i.ibb.co/Y04PvTd/538-F739...

re: Deck Stain Recommendations - cberni1
I went with Defy extreme semi transparent stain. They have a full 2 step cleaning and whitening process prior to staining but since you just put yours down, it doesn’t sound like you’ll need it. I did my 275 linear ft of fence a few months ago and I was happy with the results. I sprayed on with a pu...

Wood vs. Aluminum Patio Cover - cberni1
I'll be installing a patio cover of the back of my house and debating with my wife on which option is better for the long term. It would seem aluminum would hold up longer but my wife likes the natural wood look better. Even after staining/sealing, which will likely take more time than i'd like, ...

re: Cost to put crushed limestone on side of the house - cberni1
If you own a truck, don't mind it getting a little messy, and dont mind some manual labor, i'd recommend going to Wood Materials in River Ridge with your truck. They charge $30/ton. Their frontloaders will dump the limestone directly in the back of your truck for as little or as much as you want d...

Kork, I have a Yamaha yas-207 and I can say with 100% certainty that mine doesn’t shut off after 10 minutes of no sound. In fact, I wake up the next morning sometimes to find it to still on because my wife didn’t let the firestick remote go through the multiple device shut offs. Now, “sleep” may...
