I ran across this forum while searching for information related to my big project: restoration of the ancestral homeplace, a 1915 home in a historic district in Jackson, MS. Living 800 miles away from the project adds to the excitement. I'm getting a chance to try some relatively new products, like "Smartvent" (http://www.dciproducts.com/html/smartvent.htm) to fix the attic ventilation problem without altering the appearance of the eaves. I found this forum while looking for solutions to decking over a room with a "flat" roof. In particular, I'm poking around to see what experience people report with the BISON deck pedestals. I didn't find anything on the forum on that topic, but I think I'll stick around and learn a thing or two.
