The deck. The deck installed on the house was super dangerous, painted with one coat of interior house paint, it was rotting through, and improperly built, I wish I had more pics of this poo poo, my roomate chainsawed and ripped the while thing apart in literally 30 minutes, an hour if you count him loading poo poo in his truck, here's the best pictur I have.



Wow it looks like your roommate took your deck and installed it at my house, because that's my deck right now (complete with rotting beams). It looks so much better stained than painted.

I'm not sure being able to ride a dirt bike in your back yard makes up for all of this, but it's close

drat I remember your AI chat thread post about the roommate sending you the incredibly long text, apparently things moved fast after that. I have a friend who used to be on a sub and it hosed up his sleeping to this day, something to do with a non-24hr day? Other friends swear they gently caress the with oxygen levels on the subs but I have to imagine that's a myth because it would equally affect the guys who are supposed to be awake and functioning.

I would die from that staircase within a week

I like the contrast between the build quality of the deck and the existing construction on the house. It also seems like it would have been easier to start from scratch, but I guess you can't live in it at the same time that way (and I'm guessing more expensive)

RE: cookware, I've been looking into this recently and apparently using nonstick cookware for everything is "wrong" and I'm supposed to only have one nonstick pan for eggs. My current nonstick cookware is pretty scratched up from metal utensils (I know) which is supposed to not be good for you. However, it seems like the just get cheap Ikea stuff and replace it more frequently would work out. There are nice stainless steel sets out there but they're pretty expensive, I keep on meaning to go to HomeGoods and see if I can find them at a huge discount (which everyone online says I should be able to do).

I did recently get a Lodge cast iron skillet for $27 that I've been using all the time and it's great.

I think if I saw that wall I'd just give up. I forget if you said this, but are you able to have heat in the house right now, or at least are you free from the elements? It got Los Angeles cold here recently (high 40s) and drat that would suck to not have four walls for that, and we don't even have the rain you have.

FWIW Wirecutter did a review of those homemade filters and found they were actually pretty effective. I made a similar one when the fires here made the air quality horrible. I was able to get a "real" filter too and a PurpleAir sensor, so I've been meaning to conduct "experiments" () to compare their efficiencies but effort and all that

I hadn't checked my bookmarked threads since December and I have to say drat, you've made a ton of progress. I think I'm tired from just reading 8 pages worth of that work. Are you trying to sell it by mid-May?

I can't imagine any situation where drywalling over the attic ladder would see like a solution to any problem, except


Is the price of lumber going to screw you over, or did you get most of your wood purchased before things got crazy?

The drywall being up makes such a big difference
