220v to complete rough-in

Posted 03-22-2010 at 11:14 AM by ChrisDIY (Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch")

Everything is completed except the two 220v lines for the cooktop and the oven. Had to call GE to clarify location of power. After discussing it with them it has been simplified so will proceed.

Frustrating day yesterday...

Posted 03-19-2010 at 10:11 AM by ChrisDIY (Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch")

Went at lunch to Lowe's to buy duct to continue on the range exhaust. 3-1/4" x 10" duct comes in two pieces so it costs roughly $10 per 3' section. On the other hand they carry 6" round for $7 per 5' section. No brainer right! However, Lowe's does not have a 6" wall cap. Trying to save money I buy the 6" round and plan to hit Home Depot on the way home. I leave work and go to Home Depot. Home Depot doesn't carry Broan anymore and the 6" wall cap they have is...

...when you buy an existing home.

Completed the bulk of the ceiling painting tonight! Will need to touch up areas in bright sunlight, its Springtime, I hope that won't be this Summer .

Put in the ceiling lights so I can touch up the paint around them. Went back in the basement and turned the breaker back on, no light???

The only other breaker off is the one labeled dishwasher & disposal; which are not supposed to be on the same circuit BTW. I switch...

Here's Bing. A 4 year old schnauzerX who we picked up at the local humane society this weekend. She's super sweet and hopefully will find her forever home with our pack.

USF1 DOA at Bahrain but F1 2010 is ON! Wheeee!

Posted 03-13-2010 at 01:49 AM by Leah Frances

So sad that USF1 didn't make it to Bahrain. Seems to be a paucity of info about what/why/future of the program. Fia 'investigating'. Hmmm?

Especially sorry to miss Peter Windsor's pit-lane commentary. He clearly knows everyone and anyone seemed happy to talk to him. I was having a hard enough time listening to the post-race interviews without his voice. 'Gilette' we'll see.

Sad about Brawn GP being gone - guess working for Mercedes was his dream, and Virgin wanted...
