^I'll echo that, hope everyone has a great weekend, especially BB with her birthday and what not going on I probably won't be around this weekend either as I plan to take the weekend off. I think I'm done with my weekend work for a while, finally

Nice BB I think that's the hardest for me is to cut the time down My goal is to do 6.55 miles in 60 minutes. I'm currently 4 miles in 45 minutes.

Thanks though. Its in my notes for if I ever do outdoors running.
You can try CardioTrainer, they have a treadmill function.

How do I use CardioTrainer's pedometer?

To use CardioTrainer's pedometer feature, you can use the "Treadmill Walking" or "Treadmill Running" exercise types.

I use that app and love it.
+1 Endomodo. It's the best for me What was your time for 3.5miles? I can do 3 miles without walk breaks if I don't throw in 100m sprints every now and then, lol.

Happy Bday BB and have a great weekend with you beau!!!

Wouldn't it be great if Captain Ron could hop across the country and pick up all the Watering Hole members, fly us to North Jersey, fleet of limos to Ruth's Chris and we could all celebrate BB's birthday and meet each other?

Just found an interesting loophole in my work filter. They implemented a mobile wifi network for those of us with mobile phones that would like to stay connected to wifi, but it still goes through the same filter as our computers...all well and good with me, I can take wifi off when I need facebook/twitter access. However, I noticed I got a facebook notification while on wifi and clicked it and everything in the facebook app loads 100% correctly on my work wifi. Twitter does not load whether on the app, a 3rd party app, or the mobile website. Interesting.

Hello all. Won't be around much this weekend, got some big plans as I mentioned earlier in the week. A great big happy birthday in advance to our resident Girl Guide, who lights this place up with her inexhaustible charm and wit.

Well I think IIRC a lot of Watering Hole denizens live in NJ! Perhaps plane travel wouldn't be necessary.

Probably been asked before...is there ever an AF "convention"?

Related question: is there a secret treehouse for the green and red among us? Secret handshake? Decoder ring?

No convention that I know of. I wish there was though. That would be so fun.

This particular Friday especially. Its work related, so I won't go into too much detail. Let's say 6,000 people have a deadline that they have known about since December. How many do you think wait until today?

There was one last year at NYC. It was Phandroid and Android Central partnering up with Samsung. I know two of the moderators, TwoSpirit and Steven58 went

So, our department head is letting us leave at 2. So I'm going to be done in an hour *yay*

Just poppin in real quick while I sit here and eat my edamame at my desk while half of the office is having a nice long lunch out on the CEO to celebrate the work the rest of us did.

Congratulations on your green status, Anti. I almost didn't recognize you.

BB, hope you have a FANTASTIC weekend. Can't wait to see pics and hear how it went.

Jmar, I think I'm single handedly keeping Starbucks in business this week. (I'm a six-shot espresso kind of girl.) You're welcome.

Everyone else, have a great Friday, great weekend, and hopefully I'll get a chance to pop in here over the weekend once I unshackle myself from my desk.

A little bit of dreaming here, but this is what I'm going to take to my drafter as a starting point.

I can only see it via my phone. I'll take a closer look when I get home. I do see you have plumbing in four areas of the house including wet walls on exterior walls. That may get costly. Also, you may want to consider (at the blueprint stage) a laminate beam in the garage so you have no support poles in the center. With that lift I could see it being a pain trying to work around those. I like the concept.

Thanks for the tips! I'll definitely keep those things in mind. I do have a question though, what do you mean by wet walls on exterior walls? How could I cut the cost of that?

I'm not sure if it totally applies as you are in a warmer climate, but here in New England extra insulation and possible heat wrap would be required for plumbing on exterior walls to prevent pipes from freezing.

As far as reducing cost, copper is expensive so the less you use, the less it costs. Also, the less plumbing you have to do, the less you have to pay a plumber to do it. You also have to think of pitch for getting the um, stuff out.

If you could group the plumbing together more and save material and labor costs. If you moved the kitchen plumbing to the left side of the room and swapped the bathroom and closet in the master suite you would essentially have all of the plumbing for your washer/dryer, kitchen, and master bath in one spot. Then you only have the 2nd bath to worry about.

I can't see enough detail as on my phone to see how this works out WRT closets etc. I'll take a crack at it when I get home. I hope this gives you an idea of what I'm talking about.

I see exactly what you're talking about now. I'm not sure about the extra insulation on the exterior walls, but I will see what I can do to avoid that. I think I could easily move the kitchen sink over by the laundry and refrigerator but I'm not sure about the master bath...kinda wanted that window over the tub looking out the back of the house but depending on the layout of how we angle the house on the plot of land it might work just as good there on the side.

Between TT and DB I got a full sized copy. Let me take a look at it.

Tapatalk to download it to my phone, then push it from my phone to dropbox. Then on my computer I can access my dropbox folders (even though the public links are broken) and download it and print it.

You realize that when I post photos, most of the time I cannot see them at work, I have to check my phone to make sure they showed up.

Ahh, I see. If you need me to send you a full 11x17 size pdf of it I can do that.

Couple more thoughts geek.
If it will work with your roof line, having a farmers porch across the front may be aesthetically pleasing and offer waiting guest a dry place during inclement weather (I assume you and your wife would enter through the garage).

Sort of like this:



Also this:


I would maybe back up the garage wall to close that gap. It would also give you a little more breathing room for yard maintenance tools. You may have to jigger your roof line to make it work.

It has a porch that wraps around if you look close. I don't have it easily distinguishable and I'm glad you brought up the odd gap on the back-side of the garage. I'll fix that for sure. I just did some measuring and on that one bay it would be fine to take a couple of feet off by moving it back some. Let me take care of those.

I noticed the deck, just figured you may consider the roof over it.

Maybe, but for engineering/architectural work, it is one of the most technical terms out there.

I would just make the garage deeper, put shelves on the odd angled wall and have storage behind the vehicles for things like a John Deere tractor (friends don't let friends drive red tractors).

I've got the changes incorporated (wow...a little bit of my job slipping out there). I'll shoot it to ya if you want to take a look. The garage was plenty deep enough. 30 feet, so by moving it back It only shortened that one bay to 26 feet. We're going to build a barn on our property this fall for tractors and such

That sounds like a great idea, but will BabyBlues' boyfriend feel a little "cramped" when we all show up?
