  7. I about 45 days out unless we find a scream deal, I have my family home in California pending for sale. hopefully it close by April 6 or 7. They doing some additional structural inspections. scares me as conservative as engineer can be! especially lawsuit happy California it likely worst for geotech guys. My agent told be a story about recent buyer finding a replacement beam in wall he was tearing out that wasn't disclosed, the buyer suited the seller and won a settlement.
  8. The wife and I rent a 2019 PowerstrokeF250 4x4 crew cab SB from Enterprise rent a truck recently to haul a load of stuff home from Walnut Creek California to Washougal Washington. My truck to loud for her with mud terrain tires and monster exhaust wore out. unlimited mileage $69.95 a day. 4 days and 1350 mile later. 20 plus mpg We were surprised how quiet the truck was and how easy it was to drive. As I said: we average better than 20 mpg round trip. I was wondering about getting one. we can get one of these with around 20,000 miles on it for under $40K, is that good price. we really enjoyed the trip. it was a basic XLT, model simple radio, power most everything else, and included running boards. stock it sit has high as my leveled truck with 35 inch tires. yes iot has California emission so we can bring into Washington state.

  14. Ran across this link https://cyberauctions.com/ViewCurrentAuction.php?cid=0&aid=896&srid=49 go to page 3. then down to items 175 to 180 it looks like there are multiple lots of different thickness. 175 through 180. this great for shop wall and ceiling you split with table of large band saw and push between the joist or rafters Purlins. I can help on determining R values. Sarnatherm and Paratherm GCG is above R-6 per inch: 3 inch thickness is close to R-19. I layered a similar product on the roof of my barn before it was reroof with metal . this drop the barn apartment heating by 2/3; those I took the board and batt wood siding off and did two sides and under floor too with similar stuff. this gave me an extra layer in addition to the fiberglass in the wall, floor and ceilings which done poorly orginally. fiberglass is R=4 per inch .
