Just my $0.02:I will have to check. $1500 was with me excavating the soil which is fine, the old shed is in the same place and once that’s gone it won’t be an issue. The guy will do it properly I’m sure. He’s an old school stone guy.
My old shed is a rubber made one. Smaller, cracked floor but still in one piece. Was going to advertise it on Kijiji as take it for free but you have to remove it in one day and once you commit it’s yours.
Mother Nature is not cooperating with my attempts to grow grass on my 2 acre lawn. Hydroseed ($2500) in early July mostly washed away from downpour 40hrs later. Reseed ($200) by hand the following week was half washed away 4 days later. Fertilizer put down 3 weeks ago (pretty much just feeding the weeds at this point). Reseed again ($200) last Friday and again mostly washed away by Tuesday nights storm.
Each storm was unexpected a few days prior with no more than 10mm of rain expected on any day. Fixed erosion and reseeded some spots more than 5 times and still destroyed so I’m giving up this year and will put down some sod on the erosion parts and reseed the entire thing next Spring. Also annoying is that since the driveway is on the list to be paved it’s a bit lower than yard so grass seed washes away onto the driveway and then starts to grow so I have to kill it there to keep it prepped for asphalt. F U Mother Nature.

I went to buy a spray can to paint the new deck railing but the shelves at CT and HD looked like they were looted. The sales person at HD said it's part of the C-19 global supply issue. I could brush on oil base but they can't sell it to non pros.
I always felt the ceiling in this room was a little low but figured it was just an illusion, now I know why.... It is over 1.5" thick! Multiple layers.
The kicker, I was going to drywall over the entire ceiling....

Edit... I guess I will need to go buy a deeper ceiling box....
They being the industry. HD doesn't carry traditional oil. Tremclad gets away with "Oil" by using fish oil or something.huh??? If its on the shelf you can buy it. There is nothing at HD that is 'pro only'.
I think you need to change stores. Or sales person.
Typically a floating pad sits on top of a 6"well drained and compacted gravel bed, which in turn is on top of undisturbed soil. I wouldn't extend the pad beyond the building envelope, there is no practical benefit. If you have room, I'd do the shed 10x12 as that's typically the max size allowed without a building permit.I need to get a concrete pad put in for a new shed. Decided to do it properly and permanently. Needs to be for a 8x10 shed so I guess a foot larger each dimension? Anyone know about how much this costs? It’s in the back yard, access to the front driveway for delivery is about 30-40 feet away I’d guess. Is that an issue for concrete delivery?
We empty our pool using the pool's own pump.Trying to empty out the pool but the tiny pump dad has is struggling.
Any recommendations? Ideally a submersible, 110V and good for 16,000L.
ReMax?Our house is 35 years old. It has a roughed in fireplace in the finished basement. Three times in the last 10 years i have had water come in where the fireplace is and wet the carpet. It only happens when the wind is really strong from the west.I hired a guy 10 years ago to fix it. He didn't. Was and idiot. Hired another foundation specialist that tore out the inside wall and found the upper part of the fireplace was not built properly. He also capped the chimney.
My question..... Still leaks during bad storms. Where do i go to find someone to fix this?
I don't have time to work on it myself and take care of my wife.
I've had a few people tell me this. Basically the reason behind going wit hydroseed first was for it to grow quicker and would knock down the dust while the growing gets started (they use mostly shredded newspaper as fibers to coat ground and for seed to latch onto). Oats wouldn't have helped as they would have washed away same as the grass seed.A friend from down east said they sowed a nurse crop of oats with the grass. The oats come up fast but you can't let the mowing get ahead of you. The oats don't come back the second year.
I've used the pool pump to empty as well but since it comes out so fast it makes more of a mess on the street so I just used our submersible pump most years. Takes most of the afternoon but it works well. Still have it which you could borrow if you were closer.We empty our pool using the pool's own pump.
1) If your pump is removed each season, pull it out place it at the edge of the pool and add a 10' suction hose (princess auto). Tue the backwash hose to wherever the waste is going.
2) Connect your pool vacuum, leave it sucking while the pump is running and the filter set to waste. That will also drain your pool. If you have an air leaky connection in the skimmer, keep a garden hose running into it to prevent it from sucking air.
Temporary pool with soft sides. I don’t think they’re good to be left outside.Why did you completely drain a pool?
RIP new trailer.
