Think ya missed the link...which thread?

Yeah I have a lot going on, got that right! I'm still 2-3 pages of replies behind on some of the things in this thread. My "list" of things I need to finish in this current house before my renter takes it over is pretty huge too.

It sucks that the new place is 1 hour 10 minutes away (without Baltimore traffic), so I can't really get there as often as I would like to.

It is more of support of the duct work up there than anything. They have metal ones that would have worked with the duct work being in there. How far down is the next bar from that one? Is it where the other set of cross bracing is?

Tell you what's funny! This thread has 2155 views when I just checked.

Before my wife decided, I mean, we decided to move and have a house built, I was doing a LOT of work and remodeling on this house (most of it before I found this forum unfortunately). I created this thread 2 years ago with full intentions of renovating my basement before I got torn in 20 different directions with my job, had a second child etc., and it never came to fruition.

Basement remodel, help with an efficient layout? (diagram incl.)

When I have some time to kill (read: relaxing in the new house) I will have to take a seat and read over that thread.

I have found that some threads fall off at times. Especially around that time, the board was really busy, so some things got missed. Maybe now since you brought it up, someone will bring that one back to life.

If you do a search for "Pellet Stove" on there, he has a really nice setup for his boiler in the rebuilt home, and same for his Pellet furnace in his living room. I like how he did his Man cave upstairs, with corks on the wall. He is ex-Army, and did IED training with NATO troops. I do not know what he does now, since he does not really talk much about it in the thread.

Scott has given a lot of good ideas on re-purposing stuff, or even with how he used LED lighting for his garage, which is a shelter that he has insulated, and built wood walls inside. The guy knows his stuff, and has a lot of good ideas in that thread as I stated before.

In Post 98, the tub fire-blocks should be just above the tub-in-line with the tub lip to stop any fire from a horiz. chase from going to a vertical chase/stud cavity. On the left of the tub where the walls create a chase, there should be an air barrier (fire-block) keeping the under tub space separate from the wall chase. Same with shower, at the lip of the top of fg unit if a single wall next to it.

Another picture of the snake-like bends in your fan foil flex ducting (that exits at gable truss) in attic at last picture- is that from bath fan would be nice?

This is not an Energy Star Home, is it?

Gary
PS. They used air barrier (housewrap) correctly) behind shower but forgot behind/below tub-- if it is ESH. Pages 27-29; http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...XnsGzA&cad=rja
