I remember paying like 15-$20,000 for my 1st house many years ago
I also remember walking into a dodge dealer about 15 years ago and pricing a new 1t 4x4 cab/chassis to build a new work truck out of and having the salesman tell me $30,000.00 for it,I proceeded to tell him the last time I spent $30,000.00 it came with a front door and bedrooms!

Those house prices seems bizarre to hear when our cheapest small lot houses in Vancouver start at $750.000 and usually have a bulldozer through them a week after the sale.

hey guys, what would you say is the correct way to connect the humidifier 1/4" line to the 3/4" water line? I know tons of people use saddle valves but in my past experience they always leak! I would like to get this done before they come just so I know it was done in a non-leak way

my idea was just to put a 3/4" T in, run a small stub from that then put some type of shut off (twist valve like under sinks, or a ball valve of some kind?) then run the 1/4" copper from that? good way? bad way?

Vancouver was OK until Hong Kong fell/went back to China and all the rich folk literally walked into Vancouver with huge bags of cash and drove the market thru the roof. Housing is crazy. My house went up $200,000 in value in the last 7 yrs and Winnipeg is not exactly mecca for most folks. I could buy a basic small starter home in Wpg 8 yrs ago for around $80- $100,00 and it was fairly nice.

Thats the preferred method. I use a 1/4 turn Dahl valve, brass valve as you can throttle it down finely or a ball valve is good if you cannot find Dahl valves.
