    Yeah, it really does. I wonder if they can see the fireworks from there? (Lettered streets, 7 blocks up from Holly)

    I'm guessing that's the roofers plan.

    California used to grow a lot of cotton. Not so much anymore.

    Here is the latest sculpture from RH modern. Iím not a fan of Roman sculpture but it would look great with my new paint. Intended for that style.

    Thank you for noticing both. Previous owner was yard guy. Iím not sure Iím up to his standard. Itís a lot if work and way too much yard. Pool would be nice surrounded by that landscape.

    Bubu is quite the dog. Bought as a Chiweenie on Craigís but clearly Shiba.

    Anybody have experience with these post hole augers? Wondering if itíll be manageable with my soil type. Iíll be putting in a bunch of fence posts in hard river bottom type soil with lots of river rock.

    Itís either $60 to rent this thing or $350 to go overkill for a full skid steer with auger attachment. Iíd like to spend less obviously.

    $300 to not get tossed around the first time the auger hits a rock seems like a bargain.

    $350 for a skid steer and an auger is a righteous bargain.

    Ok Iím convinced. Iím pricing out a skid steer and a Toro Dingo options. Both have hydraulic augers that should easily manage my puny 4x4 fence post holes

    Just go into this knowing the dingo or skid steer will year up your lawn. I'd go with the dingo as it will likely do less damage and is more than capable.

    If the river rock is anything like the glacial rubble we have here in the hole, that auger is very likely to get stuck or you're gonna go thru shear pins like crazy.
    Our rubble is between 4" and 24" and a pita by all accounts.

    I am doing some fence work for Rideit and we just had a coupla laborers dig 13 holes because the landscaper with the mini excavator didn't want to risk his auger bit and I've dug enough holes here to know better.
    It took 2 guys two full days to complete and they earned every penny.

    YMMV

    I vote for learning the hard way. You ain't living until your spent a day digging holes with a rock bar after you about broke your wrist and got in a fight with your buddy running a two man auger.

    You might wanna see if any of the local excavators will dig them for you. Is that $350 delivered or do you have the flatbed to haul?

    Honestly, equipment rental is about the best bargain out there if you are a decent operator.

    Ha, that is fucking hilarious. And truth.

    First time I dug here was at the village on a sideslope with a spudbar. Had to go in a foot sideways before downwards was an option. 25 years old and full of p&v.

    I coulda had the landscaper dig the holes but didn't want a 3-4' wide crater to put a 4x4 in and have to backfill around a sonotube for the post. As it is they're about 18" wide and almost 3' deep.
    Some well payed laborers will cost less than a dingo digger.

    For new construction, what's the options for diy insulation in 2x6 walls?
    I have had experience with fibglass bats. Hate that shit.
    What about diy foam?
    I've done rigid foam, pain to trim and fit, but remember a decent R value.

    DIY foam is not cost effective for large wall areas, really just for insulating small areas. Roxul works well but is just as big of a hassle as glass. I would get some local recs for spray foam and a quote, add up your square footage and any good installer can give you a price over the phone. It's worth what it costs.

    If you want to be eco spray foam is not. Iíd consider blown cellulose of pro job or roxul for diy.

    Easiest & best value might be: XPS outside the sheathing w/ glass fiber batts inside the sheathing. Use pressure treated plywood strips as furring outside the foam & attach siding to the strips. Fasten furring strips thru to studs, not just the plywd sheathing.

    I'd suggest R-10 (2") XPS for simplicity of fastener length vs min benefit of exterior insul.
    Weather resistive barrier (WRB) goes on the sheathing, then the 2" xps then min 1/2" thick furring @ 16" OC to allow fasteners to have enough meat to bite for your cladding. Orient furring vertically. If you want vertical siding, you'll want a counter furring running in the other direction to allow fastening. If you're feeling fancy, you can keep it thin by installing a single layer of furring diagonally (12" oc).

    [eta]cavity needs to be vented top & bottom; cover opening w/ bug screen

    Wrap your windows & flash the WRB as you would any conventional wall system
