Re: New Sling Dish option to cable

Lakedog,

I have been looking for something like this FOREVER! I am going to try it out....

Also, the best purchase we made was an antenna....the over the air stuff is all HD now. Add a PVR and we are good to go...

You can pay $40/month for all NFL games through Roku. It's college ball that you still can't get.

Re: Window Inserts

I know my renter sets it crazy low in the summer...haven't checked in the winter. She sets it on 70 in the summer, that is crazy for the south...most folks set there's 75-78. She does have curtains over everything, and even a couple of thermal [more]

Window Inserts

I own a rental property that is late 60s and has the original windows. They are not leaking water and have no cracked glass, so I am hesitant to replace them. However, my renter is complaining of high energy bills despite my adding about a foot of [more]

Re: Lowering my cable bill

We like our cable TV, too. But I hate doing the "dance" and I hate paying a ridiculous amount for 400 channels when I only watch a dozen at most. So here's what we did. We sat down and listed the stuff we watched and tried to figure out the [more]

Re: squealing heat pump

My heat pump died about six months after I bought my house and we had a home warrantee. They replaced it with the absolute bottom of the line piece of junk. We had issues from the start. I finally called my own HVAC guy instead of their technicians, [more]

Re: Drain issues

We had a toilet that was rocking a bit, but not leaking, so we put off fixing. It, too, made a gurgling sound when flushed.

Re: Kitchen Base Cabinets

Hi Goofyhoofy,

I was actually thinking about buying just one base cabinet, but adding the counter over both areas and just leave the one area empty to put a chair or stool....does not seem that efficient since there is already a penisula [more]

Re: Kitchen Base Cabinets

Hadn't thought of intentionally making them look different. That may work. I have a friend with a good eye for stuff like that. I'll give him a call.

Pet Stained Hardwood

I've recently purchased a 1967 house that I intend to use as a rental. On my first walk-through, I knew I'd be replacing the carpets because of the obvious pet stains/smell (dog, I think). To my surprise, when I pulled up the carpets I found hardwood [more]
