    Home Improvement/Repair Questions

    Informal poll on what is a better option: A- buy a primary residence in this market B- rent a comparable house for a year at a cost of $36-$48k and buy in a year For every article I read that says home prices won't tank I find another one that says everything will tank soon.

    Ethics- Looking for opinion if anyone has been in this situation?

    I am willing to bet money that the HOA doesn't actually require a PE stamp for this particular document. I'd recommend your friend read the HOA requirements and fight that battle vs. trying to find an engineer to stamp something that doesn't need to be stamped.

    The Automotive Thread

    I'm not "in-the-know" on Cincinnati suburb pecking order/class order, but how does Hamilton turn into Hamil-tucky? It's the one of the furthest suburbs (you can make an argument it is not a suburb) of Cincinnati from Kentucky? Is it purely because Hamil-ianda doesn't sound as good...

    The Automotive Thread

    Honestly, not really sure. Liberty Township I think. Maybe Hamilton. Potentially Princeton. Almost Fairfield. Is Bridgewater Falls a town? I searched all the towns listed above and none of them contain their house. The address in google maps says Hamilton, but I am 10 miles east of there.

    The Automotive Thread

    So we are at my in-laws outside Cincinnati. I checked the credit card statement a couple days ago- currently averaging $0.50 per mile over ~1700 miles all but 300 or so were towing...

    The Automotive Thread

    I have not had that issue. I have found www.gm-trucks.com to be a really good resource to keep mine in check. Search the forum, I bet someone has had the same problem. Persistent electrical problems are the worse, especially on these new vehicles that are so tied to the electronics.

    1/2 ton Silverado with a 5.3. I am aware this is not ideal, but I am within my limits and it is safe (maybe not when the wind is that bad). We are going east from Denver so the wind and elevation should be advantageous. I was ready to get a bigger truck (would have gotten a trailer with more...

    The Automotive Thread

    I feel like there is another with the waters proximity to the illegal electrical situation, but I'm a consultant now and got to delete OSHA requirements from my brain after taking the PE exam. We bought a 33' Keystone Passport- I picked it up in Kansas yesterday and dragged it back to Denver...

    TX PE License - Construction Scheduler experience

    Did the board deny you, or did a individual reviewer deny you? I think there is a difference, but it depends on how NJ conducts their business. When I was denied by Colorado it wasn't technically a denial, but I could tell the engineer reviewing my application viewed my experience as...

    Formula 1

    I am really enjoying the Haas resurgence, maybe Mick will get it together soon. Gunther Steiner comes across as the coolest person on the planet, at least per Drive to Survive editing. Its such a cool sport to watch and be a fan of the sport, not a particular team/driver.

    Formula 1

    Anyone else into it? I had to think about why I am really into it: drama, speed, crashes, shiny objects, its a travelling circus, Europe/foreign destinations, etc. I settled on "engineers are the real winners in Formula 1". That's why I have always liked it and why I am glad its easier to...

    The Automotive Thread

    If a manufacturer did that I may be more inclined to buy from them. I mean honestly, when I'm shopping for my next 1/2 ton crew cab there's minimal difference (over the entirety) between a GM, Ford, Dodge or Toyota, I'd be included to factor this into my decision. I'm also not brand loyal. I...

    It turns out my wife is going to require a watch like deal. She wants in on her and wants the GPS available on her phone. There goes my reasonably priced tracfone idea. If you know the name of the one you you mention here please let me know. Dual activities are fun, and I have a third one...

    Kids of EB

    My wife and I are hitting the point where we have 2 extracurricular activities at the same time: 8 year old playing soccer/choir/battle of the books at one location and a 5 year old playing soccer on the other side of town. I don't want to get the 8 year old a phone, but we need (because my...
