Re: Hammond Organ - FREE for whomever wants to come for it

Got a 1960s era Hammond L-100 organ which I am GIVING AWAY. - Need to move it immediately! You pick it up in Etters PA 17319 USA. This is NOT a tonewheel organ like the B3 or D3 but is a TWO MANUAL OSCILLATOR ORGAN which was commonly heard in surf music and other mid-60s rock music, similar in sound...

Looks like my block building will be coming down. So it's back to either the metal building or stick-frame. As a mental exercise..... What do you guys think about concrete board over gypsum under siding as exterior over wood studs? For the walls I'm thinking studs ---> 5/8th plywood ---> green glue ...

I just talked with a mason who is looking for moonlight work who sez he can save the block walls of the building that I was planning to tear down by "stucco coating" the walls. His estimate is 1/3rd of the lowest "contractor estimate" I received. He has his own insurance and equipment. My primary co...

Fire resistance might be something to look at - drywall won't burn, and a lot of building codes are based around the house not burning down too fast. It would be a smart idea to consult with your insurance underwriter or local codes office and get some specifics on fire ratings. When I went to the ...

The room will primary be used as a mix room with the occasional vocal tracking and to produce radio programming. I will be doing lots of commercial work and dance remix kind of stuff, so tracking full-on rock bands are not part of the plan. If I record loud acoustic drums in there it would be rare. ...

Find out what kind of bird houses would provide an attractive replacement to your attic space for nesting and see if there is a way to make all involved happy, including the birds. If you give the birds a nice cushy alternative to your building you just may have a permanent solution to your wildlife...

Metal Buildings and Pole Buildings - Opinions?

It looks like I am going to be starting totally from scratch. Just got a quote on a metal building and it's made from 29GA steel which sounds a bit thin IMO. I was also thinking about using pole construction for the exterior then building "a building inside a building" for the interior. I need at le...

Word of warning about floor removal. Not only do floor joists hold up floors, they also tie walls together. Be very very careful when removing joists. You may want to consider leaving some if not all joist work in along with crossleaving them, and/or tying the walls and cross supports together with ...

A question about chemical grounds verses standard grounds: The Erico chemical ground rod kits start at about $700.00-USD. Are there less expensive options available? If bentonite fill is used around a standard ground rod, would that provide any/some of the benefits of a complete chemical ground kit?...

Based on the quality of the construction around here I think many builders are chucking the code requirements or at least they did in the 1980s when many of the McMansion subdivisions that are now falling apart were built. Some of these houses are no more than vinyl siding and wrap over "Celotex" wa...

I find it nothing short of amazing that every single place I have called (with the exception of the manager of ABC/Bradco Supply's York PA store) nobody knows what this stuff is much less knows how to get ahold of it. Yet apparently my local building codes requires it on both new and retrofit constr...
