Good luck but it looks pretty dicey to me.

Can you rent it instead?  If it last sold for 3k, and now it is selling for 47k, what is your upside here?  How much more do you think it can increase? 


In case anyone missed it, this is the end cap house.  Looks like it is a touch burned up, very likely meth and or crack production.  Might want to consider the toxic properties of a meth lab explosion and whats left behind.  Then again, might want to re-consider the neighborhood that produces crack houses and meth fires and the need to consider "defensiveness" of the property. 




by the way, the second floor siding and valley flashing of every dwelling in this picture are in bad shape.  Very very likely to have systemic wood rot behind that.

thanks, I was inspired by the feedstore idea and drew up some ideas.  Still rough, but I like the direction.

herp derp indeed.

I smell everything before I drink or eat.  It drives my wife crazy.  Apparently in central american culture it is considered rude.  I'm not too bothered by it, if something smells stinks, I wont eat it. 

I guess that’s the rude part, because I find dishes made with stinky cheese inedible.  One whiff and I pass. 

Who would drink a can of soda that stuck and was obviously infected?

The Pub / Help design portable keg setup for a weekend
« on: August 15, 2012, 04:23:38 PM »
I am looking for some help on brainstorming this.  A good friend is getting married next april and has asked me not only to stand in his wedding, not only to provide beer and mead, but also to handle his keg setup system for the event and weekend. 

He is getting married at a really nice 20 acre bed and breakfast in austin where after the wedding itself, the parents, the happy couple and wedding party of roughly 20 folks will continue to stay for the next three days to enjoy to scenic place, the pool, and other amenities. 

His dilemma, he intends to have multiple kegs for the wedding and weekend.  At the end of the day/weekend, he wants to end up with a semi portable keg setup he can use in the future.

Wedding day - he will have two domestic beer kegs for the official reception.  Most likely sanke style north american keg couplers.  It would be nice to have two actual taps serving two distinct beers, but a single tap and switching kegs in the background is not a deal breaker. 

Wedding night and after.  For the rest of the weekend he intends to flow through at least two more kegs.  I know he/his wife has voted for Hoegarrten as one of them, (I dont think this is sanke). 

co2 is definiatly the way to go here, and I will be using my 20 pound tank from my kegerator at home for this. 

He is thinking of having the kegs in trashcans and keep icing them over the weekend. 

--
Based on the above, what other ideas do you folks think would be good things to consider, specific parts or advice?   Any ideas on how to make a trashcan keg a little dressier?  Or go cheaper on a one use kegerator?  Looking for ideas...  sky is the limit during idea phase so any thoughts?

The Pub / headsup- meteor shower weekend - Perseids peak Saturday night
« on: August 10, 2012, 06:20:14 PM »
I am about to head out of town for the weekend, thought I would drop a note in case anyone else was interested but did not know about the Perseids meteor shower this weekend. 

Saturday August 11th is Perseids meteor shower peak weekend for 2012.  It should peak between midnight and 4am.  It also looks like a thumbnail waning crescent moon, that doesn’t rise until 1am or so, which is also excellent news as that sliver of moon will not light up the sky and distract from the meteor shower.

If you have them, use red lights (does not effect night vision) (red saran wrap works), and have a nighttime picnic and watch the north east sky for the meteor shower.  Go somewhere dark away from city lights and take your families if they have never seen one. Look to the northeast, depending on conditions you may see between 10 and 20 per hour or as much as 70 to 100 per hour. 

You can get more specific location information here for your state or even just generic info as well.

Even if you miss the meteors, have a great weekend and drink a cold one for me!

The Pub / Re: Stay off my f'ing driveway!

how about parking your car at the farthest part of the driveway, where your back bumper would be even with the street.  Seems that would be an effective deterrent.

« on: July 31, 2012, 11:23:57 PM »
Euge, I did not know this happened.  I am sorry for your loss. 

I did not know the man, but I imagine he was a man of honor and mistakes like my own father was.  Euge, I am saddened by the loss you had, and raise a toast high to the memories of what once was. 

There are always good times to remember.

gmac, I liked that Black mountain group, very zepplin in feel, with a touch of hipster and perhaps a touch of skynard. 

Here is a band I am listening to right now..

The Pub / Re: "Homebrewers" (insert eyeroll)
« on: July 19, 2012, 05:30:45 PM »
Amen Major. I had a guy ask to come over and see my Brutus system, ask questions and such as he was looking to build his own.  He tasted a couple of my beers and here are some of his comments to a tee...Ill never forget because I spent the evening thinking...wow I never met a homebrewer like that before. What a pompous ass.

"Clean IPA very good, but I do this in mine and its better for it"
"Youre better than 99% of the brewers I know"...me:"oh thanks man" him: "Im the 1% better though"
"Ive been brewing for 7 years I know all there is to know about brewing, hes adjusting his water for this reason, but I know all there is to know about water and I dont do it for a reason."
to his gf: "THis is the second best pumpkin beer we've had huh sweety?"....his gf turns her head and takes another sip of mine and says "yeh"

Lol comical. Funny thing was, hes over in MY HOUSE asking me questions about MY SYSTEM, making these comments. Then when he left he said, maybe we can do a collaborative batch or something. Never understood people like this, if you know all there is know, then where is the fun in doing it. Get over yourself.

You never asked him to come back and bring beer?  Hell he must of had beer of the gods.  You should get the same chance to critique his brew...  hell call him tonight and ask him to come back and bring samples.  Update the thread in a few days.
