  1. going rate is 10$...I offered two guys 8$, (knowing the unspoken rule was 10$) then when they go to the house, they said they misunderstood and said 10$...I said no, 8 or I am taking you back.....they wanted to go back to home depot. So ok. 10$...had them dig a ditch for 3 hrs, and they were done. Said they wanted to go back, work was too hard.

    Most of the time you have to supervise these guys, so its just as time consuming to do it yourself.

  2. thats unfortunate. maybe a victim of watching too many removation shows on HGTV. This stuff isnt for the faint of heart or wallet. It cost money, and if you dont have a lawn mower and need help cleaning the yard, you may want to rethink things.

  3. If you paid a GC to do the work it would easily be 80-100k. Its hard to get a loan for more than the house is worth..we had to cut a ck directly to the vendor at closing...never actually touched the money

  4. :lol:Welcome! Can I pour you a cocktail? Would you like to work the heavy bag?

    Dr to patient "Need a physical..punch on that bag for 10 minutes and I will be right back to ck your heart."

  5. prob the after...in order to gain muscle mass you also have to eat alot. Its very hard to be have low fat and be muscular. Soooo most people just try to improve what they have..I workout quite a bit, but due to body type will always be on the skinny side no matter how much I work out. Also seeing a pic like that looks more obtainable than huge muscles. I am pretty sure there is a power lifter here that will back this up.

    Still the idea is kinda gay.

    I wouldnt mind talkin bout working out over a beer and burger though.

  6. when these were built, my parents said there were copper lines running on the side of the building..guessing for water, said it looked really nice. For those that havent been inside, I still remember the polished aluminum staircase railing. Very art deco and expensive looking. The peeling pink plastered walls was always intruiging as you could see the many yrs of different paint colors.

  7. My friend moved in approx 20yrs ago and was there till the end. The vacant apts. have been used for repairs to other apartments by removing sinks etc. Not much left. The place was busted when he moved in..I still remember looking at the bottom apt seeing water dripping from the ceiling on the blinds...it was everywhere. Of course no one lived there.

    Not sure why the owner never allowed the tennants to make outside repairs...they could do whatever to the inside, but not the outside.

    He always said the owners sister owned the prop across the street (Fiesta), and felt he was trying to hurt the value of her property. He said they hated each other, and were always trying to piss the other off.

  8. as horrible as it sounds, you can take thouse white alum windows from home store, make a frame by double stacking 2x4s and stagering them with the window behind it. When its done, it looks exactly like a trad. wood window from 10ft. Its the depth and the effect of the frame. I cant explain in text. If curious pm with email and will send a pic. After the first one (4hrs) I was poping them out in 2hrs. your able to use the extra where the weights were and get an extra inch of window
