    Anyone do any slab - floor heating in here?

    Thinking about integrating some infloor heating to a new garage build and driveway pour. Does anyone here have any experience with that? Thanks.

    Best PEX fitting/set up

    Can you talk to me a bit more about the recirculating system? I am going to be putting on an instant on water heater (HeatWorks system) and given that my bedroom is at the end of a 60' run, wondering how that might work.

    Best PEX fitting/set up

    Thank you for all the feedback folks. Home is on well water. I don't mind buying a tool, even if a few bucks, if the PEX A is the better way to go with the lack restriction at the fittings.

    Haven't experienced that personally but sensory adaptation is quite real. Try it outside and post up what you find from that.

    Dana nailed usual. Leave the Reflectix on the shelf. Stick to the rigid board.

    Earthquake Retrofit Prep Work

    Looks untreated to me as well. I know that Dana knows the moisture facts backwards and forwards but if the concrete stays dry, it might be a non-issue. How old is the concrete?

    Tyvek house wrap without logos defacing it?

    Most of the stuff is going to be logo'ed up. If it is open on the top, poly should be fine. You needn't really worry about a vapor barrier unless it is completely closed up and after the winter months. There isn't much moisture in the air right now anyway. There are several roofing...

    This is really worth reading

    Whole grains.....wrong. I am sorry but most of the diet stuff that is out there is such complete garbage. I will concede that good fruits, vegetables, and coffee are good ideas. After that, much of what comes out of the government as it pertains to dietary recommendations is BS and the...

    Shell Gas Stations - Why they push so hard for you to buy two drinks and candy bars.

    Sad to see this given the obesity epidemic as you mentioned. I fill up at one station predominantly and the guys all know me now. I know they are just doing as told but it is a pretty sleazy policy. We don't need any help being fat...that is for certain. I love my Paleo diet so I keep the...

    Why are My Taxes so High?

    Retiring at 75%...what a flipping joke. I love this line in the article...Disclosure of Webber's arrangement comes as Suffolk struggles with a multimillion-dollar budget gap and spiraling state pension bills. No...really.
