If you use some of the spray adhesive JD mentioned, then put your duct tape on, it seems to hold. Duct tape is a lot cheaper than the belly tape and the spray glue gives it added stickum.

Replaced the wires and the whole box with the plug in thingy at the main pole as the wires were corroded and burnt off. The metal box was also corroded but that didn't seem to be the problem afterall. Had electric for a little while and now it's off again. Something seems to be shorting out but I ha...

Hi Maureen,
So sorry to hear about the MS. I know what it's like not to be able to use your hands and it's real frustrating. I hope this is over quickly!

Oct. 7 and 88 degrees in Michigan!

After finishing painting the access door, I decided to rake leaves today since I'm trying to make a yard out of this forest of oaks and maples. Man, it was hot! I was dripping most of the day but improvised a little resting spot with a trick I learned when I lived in Mississippi. A little more of my...

left over styrofoam or redneck coffee cup holder

I had just a few small pieces of styrofoam left over when I insulated behind the skirting so I made a "redneck" coffee cup holder for my little tractor. Just spray glued it to the top to hold my extra big coffee cup when I'm working around the yard. Thought some of you might get a kick out of it sin...

RE: Electrical Problem

I'm not sure if the stuff on the pole is my responsibility or the utility company's responsibilities. I was taking pictures of it today and noticed that the wheel on the meter isn't going around. That makes me think it might be THEIR problem. Course, my electric bill is rarely over $25.00 a month bu...

RE: deck enclosure construction plans?

lol, yeah, I've been stacking wood on this deck for a couple of years. It's really very solid. Here are some pics. Please pay no attention to the fact that everything I own is a different color. Next year, it will all get painted. I'm not sure how level it is. It appears level but who knows, so I wa...

Electrical Problem

I hope this topic is okay here and if not, please feel free to move it wherever it goes. Here's the problem. I was using a heavy duty extention cord that was plugged in under the trailer where the heat tapes normally plug in and blew the circuit. Went in the house, flipped all the switches and that ...

The posts from the deck are pressure treated and come through holes in the decking floor. I want to attach my 2 x 4's to the existing posts so they go up higher. Remember, I live in the country on my own property and the building inspector says he doesn't care as long as it's not attached to the tra...

Thanks Yanita. I did a google search and everything I found was way more complicated than I want to get with this. I guess my main concern is that I want a pretty steep pitch on the roof so the snow will slide right off and the weight of it won't be a problem but I still have to be able to open the ...

deck enclosure construction plans?

Does anyone have any deck enclosure construction plans they would share with me? Maybe you have something on your computer already. My deck is 8 x 10 and my thought was to make a greatly slanted roof and use corrogated metal as the roofing material, 2 x 4 framing, and do the sides in plastic for the...

I think these tie downs can be attached directly to the frame so it won't matter if the straps are rusted. Not exactly sure what they did attach mine too but I know they didn't use the straps that are provided for this purpose.

I'm so sorry for your loss Robert. Irvac is right. Grandmother's are priceless! It is some consolation to know that a part of her lives on in you along with the rest of your noble ancestors.

Are you on a cement slab or just dirt? I can send you pictures of the tiedowns that were installed on my home in Michigan which is on cement. If you have any work to do under there though, try to do it before you get it tied down because those things really get in the way and they really hurt when y...
