Sad that I just built a great new deck and won't get to really use it

Oh, if anyone is looking for a house in blaine or knows anyone that would be interested please let me know. I will toss someone a finder fee if they buy
If a check (cash) is all you are getting keep track of the spend use or save some for the tax hit.

It's not all, that and salary increase and quarterly bonus. But yes, going to keep track of it all.

This puts me up a tax bracket for sure sadly so the man will take a bunch more. It's all going to savings though, no car mod money here.

Re: House Projects

I work in Relo so if you have any questions on anything let me know. The key is spending as much as possible in excludeable (box 12) items.

2400 sqft of 4" concrete reinforced with rebar was about $10k

Site excavation and driveway was about $3k.

Before you start anything make sure to check the regulations for your zoning. My original zoning was Rural Residential. That would have only allowed my building to be ~1400 sq ft, also required the colors to match the house, as well as roof overhang with soffits and fascia that would have added $3-4k to initial building price.

Re: House Projects

Alright, I have been making some huge progress on the basement since we are putting the house up for sale shortly because I am moving to Florida. Here is a little before and after, still a ways to go but getting there! Old pics first, obviously! This was just after putting up all the walls.

Workshop/sewing room:

Re: House Projects

I have done everything myself (and my dad) except for the electrical, drywall and putting the floors down. Updates of the area that is nearly 100% done!

Thank you! I agree...hated the brass/gold from day 1. I've been talking about redoing that bathroom for years now, glad I finally did it. It's not picture, but I had the sinks/counter resurfaced so it looks brand new too.

Re: House Projects

Re: House Projects

That little guy is enough to heat your monstrous 4 car garage? If so, that's awesome, I was expecting to need a HUGE heater for my little 9000 cubic feet (which is not a very big garage), and temps here are usually 10* warmer. I just want to keep the garage above freezing all winter. Please post more info on therms/heating capacity, plus your cubic feet.

Edit, what was the unit price, install price, and gas line price + length? (Because I KNOW you did your homework on all that, hahaha)

Nice! I can't wait to try mine when I get home.

Btw, did he install a regulator for yours? (Did it need one?). Mine apparently needs one per the instructions and he didn't install one(he didn't really read it). When I turned mine on, it seemed a bit smelly (smell of burning rich). So I read the install and it says it needs a regulator to reduce to follow to the heater.. Gonna call him when I get home to put one in.
