    ICF construction advice

    Thanks everyone for the very useful input! Had a conf call with my architect and GC yesterday and we have decided to go with ICF construction on the home and shop/adu. Our GC has done many builds with ICF and is very comfortable with the challenges ICF creates, he uses Fox which appears to be...

    ICF construction advice

    Question, we are getting close to starting our build in No Idaho and we have the option to go traditional wood framing or ICF foam block/concrete. Our GC is fine either way and explained that ICF used to be more expensive but with lumber costs where they are it is actually a bit cheaper. I have...

    Sonos speakers

    yea, the home theater/ listening room is a different story..... I have a denon avrx receiver tied into a multi channel amp controlling all the hard wired speakers throughout the home and backyard and the Proficient speakers sound really good and are super efficient. I prefer to use a good...

    Sonos speakers

    I really like the Proficient speakers and I think they are some of the best for the money. My buddy is an electrician and he lets me buy them at ADI on his account. I used them everywhere in my home except my home theatre room. They sound real good and a fraction of the cost of retail speakers...

    TCM 1200 Hard Backfire

    Just an FYI, on my TCM 1250's at cold start the motors crank a lot before the ECU fires them, I am not sure why this is, maybe an oil pressure safety deal, the ECU verifying it found the #1 cylinder, ECU not triggering the injectors right away. I really dont know why and I never asked TCM why...

    yes. It is located on the side of the blower case next to the throttle linkage. I had one go bad on my 1250's w/ the 5 litre blowers

    TCM 1200 Hard Backfire

    I would contact TCM but the above is good idea to check That bypass valve if bad would bleed a lot of boost. Easy to check. Another thing to check, are both throttle bodies opening together? If the sneeze was severe enough it could have damaged the throttle body blade or the linkage that...

    RZR stereo

    I have the Rockford Stage 5 in my RZR and it sounds good, I would not call it loud nor is the bass output anything special. In a RZR due to very limited sub location mounting options if you want loud and big bass I think a custom system is your only real choice. In retrospect I should have had...

    Who was or still is a street racer

    I ran OCIR mainly in the 80's but would venture out onto the street on occasion. I was friends with Boyd and would run around with him, his super sleeper Nova was much faster then my 68 Fairlane. Watched him make some pretty big money until his car got real well known. Did get to watch some real...

    Build cost of shop/ADU

    If there is a big delta in price between where our builder comes in at and advice I get from GC on RDP will probably send the plans out to other local builders to get other prices. The GC we are currently working with we like a lot but I want to keep him honest.

    Build cost of shop/ADU

    Thanks Pete, this spring breaking ground on both the shop/ADU and home concurrently. At this point in time I am really looking for any GC at Riverdaves to help me establish a rough cost estimate for the shop/ADU because I do not have a good feel for what a competative price should be on that...

    Build cost of shop/ADU

    Utilities are currently at the street and the developer pays all costs to get them to the dwelling and tie in, in my case about 300 yards to the shop/ADU and about a 1/4 mile to the home that will be located on the opposing side of the property

    Build cost of shop/ADU

    I need some help/advice from the residential GC's here to identify a rough estimate on the shop and attached ADU we are building in Idaho. I am looking to identify what a fair price from a GC should be, I will not be contracting this myself. Below is the rough spec; 4,000 sq ft footprint...

    Ive gone and done something incredibly stupid.

    I dont know about the 62 but on the 66-67 you can roll/remove the inner rear wheel well lip and fit up to a 8" wide wheel with a 10" tire. Bigger then that means mini tubs and moving the spring perches. On my 67 it has the wheel well lips trimmed and the wheels on my car are reproduction of the...
