  3. Foam insulation has come a long long way. Now the foam is non-toxic, they have fungicides mixed with them to prevent mold growth and they seal the house extremely efficiently with excellent R Vales....the one thing on new construction is that they seal so well that you can have built up pollution from household cleaners, dust, and just breathing to the point where the inside air is not actually clean. To counter this they now use fresh air exchange systems (ERV) that pull in fresh air and run it through a filter and per-conditioner to cool it off then mix it with the return line on the AC un

  4. Here is the City's response to my e-mail about this project: ================= Good morning, Thank you for your email regarding the Bagby Street reconstruction project.

  5. I was in Miami a few months ago and we stayed at a Kimpton. The guy working the front desk, upon seeing my license, said they were opening a downtown Houston hotel in the near future to join the one in Dallas already open. It's been rumored that this is the location. I hope it's true because the Kimpton brand is top notch. I've stayed in Kimptons in NY, LA, and Miami and all were very well run, fun, quasi-hip places.

  8. The problem is that they will likely make it 3 lanes and have on street parking. This means less room for pedestrians. Bagby is already a fast moving street when there's no construction.

  9. Well, well, well. Aren't the hippies quite the upstart business killer! When you have a problem with loading luggage on a public street, you lose ALL claim to the 'weird' label. You do, however, own title to the label of 'snobby bastages'.

  10. So your refrigerator got way more efficient and incidentally no longer has to be unlatched, but your big-screen TV eats up that gain, and all your electronic gaming collectively uses as much power annually as the city of San Diego. Your car's fuel efficiency has improved, but overall you are filling it up a lot more than you did in the eighties, because then you looked cute driving around in a Nissan Maxima, but now for some reason you need to drive a small bus. Your little thirties-era Sears kit house was much draftier than what others are unkindly calling your "McMansion," but since you made
