I can't sleep more than a few hours a night right now thanks to my allergies, so I rigged up this contraption, hopefully it helps.



These helped me clean up the air when a bunch of plaster was getting bashed out in our house. Got some super high merv 2x10x10's off Nordicpure and rigged them up like this around the house.

Are those just air filters strapped to fans?

Yup. Air seal what you can. Deeper the filter the better the flow rate.

My house has spots because I am too lazy to repaint the whole thing. Sucks to be my neighbors.

Ah, but do you line up the screws horizontal, vertical, or at a perfect 45⁰? What do you do when that last 179⁰ makes the plate too tight and bulges/cracks it, but 180⁰ back is just a little too loose and gaps the plate from the wall?

Look buddy I'll snap the 18¢ plate in my bathroom if I want stop creeping around my house. (it's recently starting spidering cracks despite being stable for years.)

That's what spacers are for.

Good point.

I handled it with a towel and washed my hands thoroughly after, that should be good, right?

If you wake up to a bat in your house you're supposed to go get rabies shots immediately. It's 100% fatal, do not pass go, do collect your life insurance. If you found the bat while awake you're probably fine. You should call your doctor immediately.

While that is true, I handled him with a towel and he never got his little bat teeth anywhere near my skin, even when he was trying to crawl up my arm he only ever touched the towel, and an extremely thick Carhartt jacket with a long sleeve shirt underneath.

Yup. If he got in while awake you're probably fine. But like make sure you deed that death trap lovely house over to kastein before you go.

I love the ambiguous "cold water clothes line" or "air hose". Please don't tell me what it is, or point out the air compressor.

The Ford Ranger might be the finest pickup ever built, but it's not really ideal for 16' lengths of lumber. (That super duty is loading like 10 sticks of PVC trim, the owner has a step ladder so he can reach the bed)



And a verrrry small penis. Today on the freeway I saw a hero. Honda civic ex with some ~1-2" pipes sticking several feet out of the sunroof going down the freeway near Anaheim, CA. They must have been 6' sections. ADA license plate and everything. It made me very happy.

I used to fit 10' sticks of conduit in my Mustang on supply runs, 1" and below PVC would fit, if we needed EMT I had to put the top down.

Top down skies the limit.

What are we looking at?

I see freshly cut studs so there's no real structural integrity, but it looks like you did that recently. What am I missing?

edit: oh wait. Is it that the existing stud is so far out of alignment with the new stud? because

Thank you for this, I knew something was horrifically wrong but I couldn't figure it out other than the cut studs and knew it couldn't be that simple.

And maybe smoke from the more and more frequent wildfires

I've been really happy with both of my Austin Air base model units. They're spendy, but the filter lasts 5 years, made in the USA, real support on the phone with friendly real people, and I couldn't smell smoke in my house mid wildfire here in socal.

I'm trying, I have 6,000 watts of heat running to dry the mud, and I keep forgetting one heater's on my kitchen outlet circuit and tripping the breaker making food. Shouldn't have replaced that Zinsco panel.



Seriously though it looks amazing.
