Re: Reckon we'll be double-deckin'...

Thanks! My husband is pretty handy!

Also, for some reason I didn't get notified of all the replies before I posted that link.

Thank you all for the clarification on the wood vs. metal issue....

Re: Reckon we'll be double-deckin'...

Interesting.

Again, I don't know much about this, but doesn't building with metal add a ton of weight? Something we're obviously concerned about with the whole 14' high issue...

Re: Reckon we'll be double-deckin'...

Re: Reckon we'll be double-deckin'...

The rat got in via a hole that...

Re: Reckon we'll be double-deckin'...

Yeah, we've talked about that. Apparently hantavirus is spread when the urine/poop is dry and you inhale it (eg, vacuuming, etc). If you wet it first you don't stir up the dust particles that spread...

Re: Long term parking/ homeowner

Where I live, SoCal, f you are planning on building on your land you can get a temporary occupancy permit that's good for a few years, I believe. That's our plan, at any rate.
