Re: Craigslist Finds....

You guys are so trusting! I have to say, around me "as is" means "broken". "In storage" means "left out in the rain". "I'm not sure" means "I'm not telling". "Worked last time" means "hey, I never said it still works". "Ask me any questions" means "there's rust that I didn't picture, but I never sai...

Re: Tile shopping rant

I grant you permission to smack the next ass who spouts that nonsense at you. After living in New Jersey for a year, I now believe that pain is really the only way they learn.

Re: Glad I found you!

Welcome to the forums! Let me be the first to pelt you with requests for pictures of Hayslope. Please please please?! There is no place on this site to sell things. But most of us here use Craigslist. So I can recommend that. I'm assuming the barn they belonged to no longer exists? Otherwise, perhap...

Re: Wood floors in bathrooms?

I'm hoping to find the original wood floors under the 2 or 3 inches of who-knows-what that's in my bathroom. The top is the ugliest Home Depot tile I've ever seen. I think it's supposed to look like a cloudy sky. My thought on water in the bathroom is this: A splash or spritz or even a spill can be ...

Re: Venting a dryer

Isn't it just awesome when WE have to know more than the people we HIRE to do the job? What's next, having to remind a doctor that the thigh bone's connected to the hip bone?

Re: WHY???

That's one of about ten examples of exactly the same thing, happening all over town. It's not just one or two. There are DOZENS of those houses around town. And in almost all of the cases, it was 100-year-old houses being torn down to make room. You all know I'm not happy about vinyl windows and sid...

Re: WHY???

In my town, they'd like to knock down every other house so they can build two or three more. That's how this: http://preservenutley.org/img/chestnut_and_prospect.JPG Turns into this: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-vYu_uSP0i7A/Tv80HLtnngI/AAAAAAAAAoY/PBzwqBjAYpY/s747/ugly.jpg It makes me sick.

Re: Possible Family Aquisition (Foursquare with pics)

If anyone has had a VA loan, is one able to buy with it, but not move in immediately? We bought our house with a VA Loan. One does not have to move in "immediately", but is expected to occupy it within a reasonable amount of time. I think I read 2 months somewhere. Apparently, one can apply for an ...
