  1. Just a touch low. Couple more clicks up on the next shot.
  2. My point is that rural code inspectors tend to be some elected official's brother-in-law or buddy and may or may not have the first clue about anything to do with construction. Either way, the bigger builders can usually afford to grease enough palms to get by with whatever they want. So just because the state has a written code doesn't mean that anything that gets built follows it. Florida is a different animal. The insurance industry has forced them to be very strict.
  3. Just because a state has adopted it, doesn't mean that there's any real enforcement, especially in rural areas.
  4. That's state wide, and probably nation wide.... builders get as much code enforcement as they can afford.
  5. Drivers here can be annoyingly unaggressive. There's no comparison to traffic in big metro areas.
  6. I agree that distributors are a leach in the system. I wouldn't expect the OEM's to bring distribution in-house, as that would increase their overhead at a time when they're doing everything they can to reduce it. I would expect the business model to change, perhaps to consigned inventory similar to car dealers.
  7. Sparta and Spencer are nice places, but they're both a good ways off the beaten path so you get all the good and bad that come with that. The housing market is so busy right now that I'm not surprised you can't find a builder that's interested in working an hour from anywhere.
  8. Win some, lose some. Gambling can be expensive.
  9. Look into a rain barrel. The standard blue or black barrels work fine, or you can get something prettier. I don't recommend the white barrels due to algae growth. We have one 50 gallon barrel and a 5 minute downpour will fill it up.
  10. Am I the only one who can't see the pictures? There's spaces for them, but they don't load. Edit... never mind. Apparently I just needed to post something to get them to load. Nice work as usual GT.
  11. I didn't think about it at the time, but similar stuff happened when they built Hamilton Place mall in Chattanooga, which was built on a subdivison. I recall there being a few hold outs but I don't remember if they finally caved and sold or were forced out.
  12. Doesn't seem like this is an eminent domain issue. The .gov wasn't taking his property for a .gov project. He got screwed by the local zoning commission because they wanted more tax revenue from a large private business. I'm sure the proper course of action would have been to spend truck loads of money suing the municipality, because that's the only way to accomplish anything in modern America. This guy chose civil disobedience instead. If you're gonna do that, do it with style. He did.
  13. Can't say I ever heard the story behind that before. Interesting for sure.
