    Thank you all. The best thing to keep your marriage strong is to listen to the other and never go to bed mad. Some hugs during the day help too!

    Thanks. It seems to me "for better or for worse, til death do us part" should mean a long time.

    Not sure about your pans but it is not good to burn treated wood, very nasty emissions. In fact I think it is considered hazardous waste.

    About the steam and the ridge vent, regardless of the cupola or not, some steam will vent thru that type of ridge vent. A hood can all but eliminate that. I highly recommend you use a sheet goods...

    While I rarely carry in my bush, except when deer hunting, for those who don't carry, just remember, if you do encounter a bear, do not run (or in my case, try to run). You should stand tall and make...

    CDL carries them, however they may not be any different than the ones from a beer keg, as long as you get the tri-clover clamp version. The only difference might just be CDL's mark-up.

    I'm not so sure about that. If I recall, back when I had a Half Pint, the directions said to build a wall at the back of the fire box, then the stack exited out the rear, a ways down. Also, on my...

    Maybe- you might have a little too much space under the pans. How much of the pan will be resting on the bricks? you really want maybe 1/2". You will do better if you use a door too, with adjustable...

    He shouldn't put you down, just coach you how to remedy. Carpentry Is rather easy, but it's not something one can go into without any references on how to do it.
    That is very fixable.

    Leave the clamp on. The only thing to watch closely is the gasket in subsequent years. They will usually last 8-10 years, but buy some spares just in case. If you can feel the slightest nick on the...

    My guess is that most buy a complete kit and not the individual components. Another may well be that Marcland uses list price and others discount it. Or even maybe Marcland protects their dealers by...

    There may be a reasonable fix. You may have scraps (cut offs from construction) laying around. I might suggest you put 2x4's or 2x6's on edge directly under each span that does not have a stud...

    I believe when using 3/16 you should have 15 taps as a general minimum if you want to get a good boost from gravity. It seems the guidelenes are for 15 to a max of 35 or 37 per lateral. Fewer than 15...

    studies have shown that in use the biggest difference between 3/16 and 5/16 is that the gasses can pass the sap in 5/16, but not in the 3/16. That is the biggest reason I have all drops in 5/16 while...
