    The back porch of my house curves around the north and west corner of my house. This means it
    gets a lot of wind-driven rain, and also quite a bit of sun in summer, but not the strong sun
    like on the ...

    Neal, thanks for the Cat's Paw info! I do have vents in the ceiling that were added later, and
    some of the eaves are not airtight, so the attic is plenty well ventilated.Bud, thanks for the
    comment. I...

    I would like to make a window out of it, and that doesn't look to be too difficult once I get
    that white frame out and put some glass in it. It would be nice to have some daylight in the
    attic!

    Hi Neal, thanks for the quick reply and for confirming what I was thinking. While some parts of
    the house were completely finished, some other parts were conspicuously never finished. The
    attic was ne...

    My 1895 house has one window opening in the attic, and that window was covered up with a
    plastic grate and screen several years ago. Previous owners of the house can't tell me anything
    about what kind...

    Wow, great idea!Thanks, Neal!

    Thanks, guys! There is no good place to drill a hole in the piece or toenail it as that section
    sees a lot of sun and rain/snow (front edge of porch, faces east). Plus, it's already painted.
    Fortunate...

    I have a 6" long piece of deck wood on my porch that goes in front of one of the columns. The
    original piece was rotted and it has been removed. The piece I've made fits in perfectly, but
    there is no ...

    Interesting ideas! I could use the yard roller, and I would need to find some kids to use it as
    a teeter-totter. I don't have any little ones.Vince

  • Posted in thread: Uses for old Well Water Pressure Tank? on 12-12-2016 at 01:34 PM
    Before I send this tank to the scrappers, I'm wondering if there any good uses for the old
    pressure tank I used? It's not rusty or damaged, just that it no longer holds pressure.I figure
    I've gotten p...
