Re: Home Construction Discussion

Iirc Roxul is great for noise dampening.

Fire is of so little concern to me, my house is 82 years old, it'll go up like a dry piece of tinder.

Re: Home Construction Discussion

RD I am doing basement walls and not wall cavities or attic, so we obviously have different issues going on.

Problem with spray foam is that there is no going back after. You are locked in and can't run bugger all in you walls after.

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

Leaves deal Jonas Gustavsonn to the Jets for a '13 7th round pick. Wow, remember the hype surrounding this guy when he first arrived to TO? :roll: Things have gotten real nasty with Pavelec and his agent in Winnipeg. They also don't know about bringing Mason back at 1 million per. Could be a few re...

Re: Home Construction Discussion

RD- it's different in my world but if you are digging down- seal the exterior and then spray foam the interior. once this directional boring is done my walls will be spray foamed. I was in another older house in my neighborhood last night and my buddy had his basement spray foamed and it was so dry ...

Re: Home Construction Discussion

So fuck, the first real headache hit. AFter back filling in all the floor with concrete there is a small leak in my water line that comes into my house. Problem is it's the old lead line and virtually no way to fix it and more than likely trying to fix it will only make the problem worse! So I have ...

Re: Draft 2012

Lancer seeing as you are such an expert... You have demonstrated sooooo much in this thread and others, what do you think of Buffalo's opinion of Cody Hodgson now? Seeing as you have such an acute and certainly comprehensive and definitive analysis of Gaunce I'm sure you can make one of Hodgson and ...

Well hydro inspector passes everything and calls back for reconnection at 3 pm. 4.5 hours later no Hydro!!!! Called, freaked out, and was told they are running ...

Ironically Komisarek's deal allows him to designate 15 teams on June 15th. Those are the teams he will be traded too.

Re: Home Construction Discussion

Re: OK, So What I have heard this May 2012

The way to get Shea is to offer signing bonus money. Give $20 mill up front- it gets applied to the cap but creates a huge cash flow problem for Nashville.

That's what the rich teams need to do.

Re: OK, So What I have heard this May 2012

Evander's got his own issues, depending on who you listen to. Gossip around Winnepeg this year was that he walked out on his tab at a restaurant, and when the proprietors tried to get their due Kane told them if they looked the other way and paid him $500 in cash he'd plug their establishment on tw...
