    Cheap LED strips are popular with the kids these days.

    I want to put some on my ski shell and spice up night skiing.

    BLS called it “flexible workspace” or something to that effect pre-COVID apparently.

    I looked at an island for sale. An entire island. That would be really cool. 5 acres.

    Edited to add: what's with the blue undercabinet lighting? Think that's UV for sterilization, or just bad taste?

    Wow....
    At least they took the plastic of the furniture before that pics were taken. The blue lights fit in w the rest of the ugly lighting and bad taste.

    Depends what the question is
    https://www.bls.gov/news.release/flex2.nr0.htm
    Somewhere between 2% and 25%. 7% as an answer seems to be people who worked at least one day a week at home.

    Man, what is it about cheap LED strips? They are just so cool. I mean stick them under your lowered street racer. Or line them around your lifted pavement princess. Just so many cool things you can do with them. Thinking I need to go down to the local home improvement mega store and get me some for the walkway.

    Took my boat and checked out the island. Smoked a bowl in complete peace. Spent several hours. Seriously thinking about buying this.

    Barcelona bans single room Airbnbs. Still allowing short term rentals of complete apartments. First major city in Europe to try to legislate away short term rentals.

    Cabin = seasonal recreation cabin is yes. No septic, so portapotty. Electric would be solar.

    Green water = Welcome to Wisconsin.

    It's a good step but I think it's a bit backwards. Extra rooms are less likely to go back into the long term rental pool than full apartments.

    Harry, I can't keep up with this thread. Did the place near Duluth fall through?

    So where do you put shit and where do you get drinking water? Composting toilet? I thought composting toilet was illegal under most building codes?

    Definitely put a wood fired sauna on it. I have dreams of building an electric one in my backyard, a wood fired one if I ever get land out in the sticks.

    I have a Berkey water filter system. We don't use it to drink lake water, but others on the internet claim to. Sure seems a lot better than the backpacking systems. Water filtered through it tastes awesome. It's kind of slow but I bet if you bring a gallon or three with you and fill it up when you arrive at the cabin it would not be bad. They make them up to 6 gallons. Survivalist forums would be the place to sort all this out- they have been egging each other on for a decade+.

    I'm amazed at how popular saunas are in the northwoods, even in the hunting-type camps. I honestly didn't know that was a thing.

    Yeah, hired a lawyer to look at the Lake Superior place. That easement was rock solid, nothing I could do about it. Best $300 I ever spent. Lawyer found where 30-some years ago there had been a court battle about it, and the Judge confirmed the easement is valid, even though it was not properly filed originally. Too bad as that was an awesome piece of property. 600+ feet of sandy beach. But that easement totally fucked up any prospect of building anything. Glad I took your advice and hired that lawyer.

    Or Fin, the largest pop of Fins outside of Finland is Thunder bay where they love to suana and beat themselves with willow branches which explains a lot about the finnish psyche if you have ever drank with a Fin

    suana should be pronounced so nay

    I live in the north woods.

    Was just talking about this with my kid - 15yo daughter. While we were both sweating in our sauna (sow-na).

    Subject a: how many of your friends have a sauna at home? A: lots. So many Finns around here…..

    Makes total sense now. Been out west too long, starting to lean in to areas up that way and have seen a pattern. Got lots to learn.

    Lots of true out houses in Northern Wisconsin. I helped dig one about 20 years ago. Not sure about that close to water though. This cabin was 300 yards away from the lake. Guessing you could probably hand pound a well and get water.
