  1. Is it not common to adjust the ceiling / wall height so that you still have the desired final ceiling height? The guy across the street built full on drop ceiling like you would have in an office building. 2-3 feet of cavity, and the ceiling is the aluminum frames with acoustical tiles. I know another guy who did the same but I think his cavity is only about 18 inches but the house is 4 stories including the roof deck.
  2. How much gold of value is in a gold crown? I'm getting one pulled this week. Is that off topic? Sorry.
  3. The idiot in this video is about as lucky as you can get! On most days, he would be dead!
  4. What kind of ceiling do you have that has a cavity above it?
  5. Also, if you have access to the opening and a power washer, you can try and jet it out. You need a good power washer though. https://www.amazon.com/JetSnake-Sewer-Jetter-Cleaner-Pressure/dp/B077STYDB9 https://www.lazada.com.ph/products/pressure-washer-drain-ram-sewer-cleaning-nozzle-power-hose-jet-9-jet-38inch-male-intl-i163098492-s200620335.html?ef_id=CjwKCAjw_uDsBRAMEiwAaFiHaxj72or_ppyY83vSqSlCY0jDwGnM-Ejj54LLlSEYBIJro0MrWa2RKBoC24gQAvD_BwE:G:s&s_kwcid=AL!3151!3!244365264139!!!u!293946777986!&exlaz=d_1:mm_150050845_51350205_2010350205::12:1032129542!52512091404!!!pla-293946777986!c!293946777986!200620335!127215854!244365264139&gclid=CjwKCAjw_uDsBRAMEiwAaFiHaxj72or_ppyY83vSqSlCY0jDwGnM-Ejj54LLlSEYBIJro0MrWa2RKBoC24gQAvD_BwE
  6. Also, with the rain gutter pipes, install the largest possible. I replace our 3 inch with 4 inch and they handle all the leaves and stuff quite well.
  7. I love these new PEX systems they are installing in the U.S. https://www.constructionprotips.com/jobsite-tips/plumbing/working-with-pex/
  8. Same question I asked Tommy. Are your "external" pipes on the first floor on the exterior of the house or????
  9. Can you describe in more detail how your "external" pipes will be? Not embedded in the walls at all?
  10. Just catching up on this thread. Great stuff! When we are ready build I will insist on a mixer, even if I have to pay for it. You will get a much better, consistent mix. For large areas, I will get ready-mix. Mixing by hand is ok for a very small job.
  11. When you are going that fast they don't even see you!
  12. I find it really intense just to watch this. The speed is incredible! It does not have a gory ending!
  13. In my case, they just rolled it on. I can't remember what kind of roller they used. They did take their time and were doing it slowly. Seemed to know what they were doing.
  14. Hmmm, not sure I ever noticed anything on the ceilings in the U.S. Seemed to be as smooth as the walls but I guess if you stare at them long enough on a sleepless night, you will see something. On my ceilings, they just mixed some sand or something into the paint. Maybe it was that Artex stuff Kuya John mentioned. In the U.S. we had some stuff my construction friends referred to as "popcorn" ceiling and it was sprayed on. It was much thicker and could hide more defects. Here is what mine looks like. Actually I'm happy with it in most places. They used a patch on the seams and sanded, before this. I think the hardiflex is only 1/4 inch.
  15. Actually he said it was his roofing contractor so he may have been just chatting about it with no financial stake in it. Based on my limited experience with Hardiflex, it seems to me that gyproc, taped by someone who knows that they are doing, has a better finish look. Hardiflex seems to be harder to hide the seems, even when taping. I could be wrong. I have hardiflex ceilings in my living and dining rooms. I had the seams sealed and sanded, then I had them texture coat the entire ceiling, thinking it would hide the seams. It helped, but you can still see the seams.
