Look who's talking, lets revisit your description of you putting,

" the pointier the tip, the more modern, the rougher the pottery, the older"

Translated by Philly to sound more sophisticated:
^ that was taken in the middle of a day-long survey/mapping project at this site that was recently discovered. basically we're doing some basic analysis to determine when it was occupied and what we can tell about it in relation to other cultures/empires. on the first go-round last week we found pottery, which told us it wasn't pre-ceramic, as feared. the roughness of the pottery (as opposed to the fineware we're processing in the lab) suggests that it's a late formative site (which would place it around 200 CE.) however, today's analysis proved even more useful, if more tedious... on one of my many routes on an imaginary grid imposed over the contoured ridge composing the site, i came across this small lithic (stone) projectile point. comparisons to sites surrounding it suggest that it's significantly thinner than formative projectile points, indicating an advance in lithic production that's distinctly middle horizon (roughly speaking, around 600-800 CE.)
 

 

i don't get how this relates to your smouldered gooseberry stitched scarf that you accessorize with your hessian winter loafers

Alice,

I just have I one question.

Are you able to enjoy such luxuries because of your own hard work or is it as a result from your parents hard work?


Doesn't matter how many times I say it, people are going to say other wise, but the only thing I have received from my parents in over a decade is maybe $5k a year between B-Day and Christmas money, that's it.

About 13 years ago now, they helped me with the deposits on my first 4 plex and again with my first 3 building office complex, but I have paid them back in full quote a while ago. Actually, now that I think about it, they also paid my $38k cabinet bill for my new house when I was building it as a house warming present.

Aren't taxes public info? Surprised all the deep googlers here haven't already confirmed my income doesn't come from my parents.

I admit I did have a huge leg up after Katrina because I was able to repair my rental properties myself using my own crews and was able to walk away with almost $520k from savings on work insurance paid for between the 5 properties. After setting taxes aside, I paid off the remaining mortgages on both 4 plexes and bought the Ferrari. As long as you claim insurance overages and pay taxes, it is all legal.

Make sure you seal that poo up well.
That will be a neat look when its all done.

When I work on my kitchen I will invite your fam to the beach.
We can build poo (I give steaks and beer) and the kids can play and I can oggle at your wife when my wife isn't looking and viceversa if you wish.

Good times!


yeah it's sealed up. this is actually from a year and a half ago so everything's finished now, except for one small section i haven't gotten around to. i troweled a venetian plaster finish on the walls and built an arched entryway into the kitchen so it's pretty sweet

and that would be fun, i haven't been down to your area in quite some time. once i get back from peru in early august i should be throwing a deckwarming party to celebrate finally finishing that beast, so if a drive up isn't too bad for you guys you should definitely come. i may try to make it coincide with a preseason game and haul my tv out there



Venetian plaster fake look? For a backsplash to contrast a mosaic tile counter? You call that dump SWEET? Well now we established you have the tastes of a homeless vagabond, we should stop letting you post anything opinion related! So basically you have a wood bull nose and no backsplash with a porous natural tile with tons of grout lines for a counter, great job, sounds ideal! I guess the first time you spill a colored drink, you will find out why people don't use that for counters. What's next, newspaper insulation on your exhaust vents? Gasoline lit fireplace!? Lol. I guess ignorance is bliss!

They produce grout and sealants specifically made for kitchen tile counter-tops. It's not Philly's fault that you're a moron who acts like you're some expert of everything.

Oh really, they make something called tile and grout sealant? No way, it can't be!

Maybe do a quick search on how 99% of those jobs workout. And looking at the level of Phillys work, he's not going to make that one percent. To start with, he probably used sanded grout. secondly, there is no backsplash! Just because you can do something, doesn't mean it should be done, and he chose the worst at every turn, form $30 particle board cabinets, no moisture barrier between tile and plywood, wood bull nose,a mosaic tile that quadruples the grout area which is the hardest part to clean and first part sealant will fail and will be a Petri dish for bacteria, but hey, I guess you have as much experience as i do.

No you fuging shitstain. I built houses for over a fuging decade. I grew up in the construction industry. I've built over 200 houses in my life, 90% of them being larger and worth more than your shithole, including over 20 for famous people. How many have you built?

 

You can buy grout that doesn't require sealant that is made for fuging counter-top tile. Tons of people build kitchen counters with wood bullnosing. Kitchen counters don't require a moisture barrier, though you can certainly put one if you feel like it, it's just not necessary unless you're using like sandstone or coral tile - it's not like it's a fuging shower floor.

 

Also the backsplash is installed last, so saying "derp there's no backsplash derp" is fuging moronic as the picture is an unfinished product, you jackass.

lol wrong on all counts. but i guess its no surprise that a pastry-huffing milquetoast such as yourself has never learned a physical laboring skill in his entire life and has to resort to parroting stuff a contractor with dollar signs in his eyes said to make an incredibly easy sale

yip! yip! yip! yip! yip! yip! yip! yip! yip! yip! yip! yip! 

 

 

little dog, that's all I hear.

 

I used to install that stuff all the time, now I just do it part time when I pick up the odd jobs in my spare time during the winter, the sealants actually come off the stone first because they are usually slightly raised surface to the grout, slight raise = more wear, so as long as you seal usually once a year you are good(for natural stone), so thats strike 1.  

 

Sanded grout is a type of finish for grout, not a type of grout itself, all that is added is (shocker here) SAND to the mixture to add a bit of texture to it, otherwise there is no difference at all compared to other products or negatives other then the sanded ground isnt very good for those really tight 1/16 fits, and that's it strike 2.

 

 

no moisture barrier is required between tile and plywood, they have a latex additive that you can use with the mortar that acts as the barrier itself when you do the install, wouldn't use it that way on drywall, on that we use green board, but thats only for showers and bathrooms where a lot of moisture can get on the walls so thats strike 3.

 

That's 3 strikes now, so can you please GTFO
