Also gas range >>>>>> induction stove >>>> glass top electric stove. What a difference in cooking power and food quality! Ours is a kitchenaid five burner and really good but I'm sure they are all awesome. A welcome little surprise in the new :haus:

Work is catching up to me and I need to focus on making teh money's. Bill's are racked up, it's frustrating because I'm not sure if I s...

I want to do this: https://www.desiretoinspire.net/2019/11/11/plenty-of-colour-and-pattern-in-an-oklahoma-home/ It works in the sea of white and black and would definitely brighten up anyone's winter day.

Possible Wasteful Home Renovation

Ok so if moving isn't an option I'd look at spending 30k in the basement instead. Added bathroom and guest room/dog house sleep quarter where :wasteful: can jerk off in peace once in a while.

Possible Wasteful Home Renovation

I'm going to be different and say that converting the existing closet space into a full wall is cheap and easy DIY for 2k. I'd do that and argue that the upstairs is too small for another bedroom. TBH, I'd sell and get another place with the space needs of a growing family. No guarantees that the ad...

It's Not Easy Being (a darker shade of) Green

I drove around with no plate on my Outback for a summer and got 5-6 tickets. Even got pulled over in the middle of the city where the cops 100% have something better to do but no they'll still pull you over. I ended up zip tying it to the bottom of the radiator opening in my bumper. I did this exac...

:jelly: mine has been hauling bs house shit during the move and getting car seats back in as of 20 minutes ago. Mine needs that shit so bad. Our pricing is way lower for that stuff. Ceramic coating of the good stuff is 600 with a stage one correction. For a stage 3 it's probably double. Add wheels a...

What do you think is the proper way to use money on everyday life?

But what about in general ? Should one live to as much as the paycheck allows - maximum 401k contributions +6 month rainy day fun? Or should one just live to the bare minimum that doesn't cause self loathing? Your borrowed money probably shouldn't exceed total household income times four. I'm at TH...

Oil is the only commodity that hasn't appreciated in the last decade... :wtf: just bizarre none of it makes sense. I was just saying word of caution that's all.

Ouch! That's a big bet to make in my books (I'm not comfortable dropping more then 5 to 10k on any one idea and am willing to ride out my mistake for years. Obviously oil isn't going anywhere but with a strong push towards alternate fuel sources you are catching a falling knife and bound to get cut...

10 years ago I was in the exactly same mind frame that @dubshow is in right now. Since I've discovered that Accounting Principals don't apply on a global level I feel much better about the inflationary future we have in front of us.

So things are coming along nicely. The inspection came back with very little to report. They are fixing a few plumbing things, there's a few things for me to do when we move in, all basically free and easy.

I was completely underwhelmed with ceramic coating on my ZR2 that spent its entire life outside. It really didn't last much longer than a normal wax. My :poorvette: however, was fantastic. I ceramic coated it once in 3 years and even to the day I sold it, it looked :mindblown: awesome. I've conclud...

This thread took a turn for the better. I really enjoyed the contributions, and still somehow now want an LS even more. I agree that a 1999 car of any manufacturer may be a shit show, but there is documented proof that a 15?yr old LS was more reliable then a one year old Focus. I thing Motor Trend o...

I do love what I'm getting for the effort... Since we have high ceilings and crown molding in the main floor we opted for very basic MDF baseboards cut from large 4x9 sheets of 3/4" and two face shoe moldings. The baseboards will be 8" tall. Same floors as my existing place, 8" wide hand scraped lig...
