No Sir.

I've tried it on several dedicated 20a circuits. It's possible the circuit breakers are bad/ worn out I guess. Sherree took a nap in it today anyway.

Thank you for it. It's not for nothing, we use it just to get out of the mess and be a calm place. The house is loud with all the fans and it cold as hell.


We got the dryer running and have been washing clothes like crazy.

Man I'm sorry. I have no idea why it's tripping your breakers. I've never had that happen.

Our moisture needs to be below 10% before we put Sheetrock back up but we can get it here on site at most anytime now
I will get info to Ragincajingt and he will get a BOM together.

Brian, how do I see what Texasfixtures has available ?

I'm ordering a moisture meeter off amazon tonight.

No word from FEMA yet but from what I hear it ain't much anyway.

No worries.
On a brighter note, the dehumidifier is fucking awesome !
Couldn't get it to run right. Kept giving me a plugged drain tube code even after I got mad and cut it completely off. Pulled the pump out, cleaned it all up and lubed the float shaft. It's been running for 4 days now !

Well I'm glad it's working for you. That thing has sat in our storage room for 2+ years. I'll never need it so it's yours for the taking. Might wanna get rid of the sticker on it though.

I need to know what you want. If you want 3/4" wood then tell me what color, type of wood, size and I can see. If you want tile then give me an example of what you like and I'll have TF try to match it. There won't be a sears catalog of selections. Feed me examples and I'll do my best to match and then I'll send back pics for your approval.

Will do. Does that include the front door too ?
What about solid surface Countertop material, do they have it ?

I'll get on it.

No "after" photos because it was raining hard when we left. We made great headway with the Hardiboard install. We're about 60% complete in the front. We need to fit 2 more windows and go around the new front door. whatever the front door's final form will be.

But I can share a picture of the gutted material waiting for pick up. Todds been working his dick off but the damage is extensive.

He is also incredibly greatful for all of you guys. It's hard to put into words but it's admirable and motivating to say the least.

I'll check on the counters. What's "solid surface"? And, shoot me a pic of the front door that you want and the size. I'll check.

Don't forget to specify the door swing (left hand or right hand) and the exterior wall thickness (if it was built with 2x4s or 2x6s)

I have been seeing articles on FB that are saying you need a permit before you can do any repairs on your flooded house. And people are being told to tear down there repairs.. I hope its BS. I can see getting major damage needing a permit but to replace things back to livable ? Good luck..

Looks like it's legit.

Some local politicians need to wear tar and feathers. Seriously. Someone needs to bring this shit to an abrupt halt. With extreme prejudice.

Cock sucking local gubment capitalizing on disasters even.... Not only are they working it on a federal level, but now directly on the little guy.

As if they will be able to keep up with the permitting process. They will take the permit fees and then waive the inspection process.

Can someone get me his address or at least the correct parish? I can't find it in here. I'm talking to a friend in BR that knows about the permitting process and can help make sure it's done properly.

ETA: Thanks, Brimmstone. Damn, you're quick.

Exactly. It's not like they're going to send out the one guy to check everyone for permits. Do whatever you want- "we had to replace the carpet"

That't not how it works if you are filling a claim with FEMA or your insurance,,,For a claim they crawl up your a$$ on everything. Had to deal with it in 97 floods up here in N. California and they screwed us out of 1000s of $$$

It needs to be done correctly for a million reasons. I'd hate for all this time, effort, and money to be wasted. Maybe it is bs, but we can't change it at this moment.

Corey, it's on the stupid messenger deal with FB. I Was trying to ask if your contribution needed to come through your vendors or if it could be done through Brian's hook up.

Permits, they are trying to say if you replace a sheet of rock you need a permit. Everything is 7.5' or less. No sheets here.
Power cut off by the power company? Need a permit to turn it back on. I'd be buying one if I could.

They are also saying you have to elevate your home 1' above wherever the water level was "If" you were in a flood zone.

For the what are the odds column,
I thought we'd have termites. We didn't until the very last stud was uncovered. I mean the last one. Not next to it or above or below, just the one.
Going to replace the stud and get it treated.

I heard today that we had gotten 31" of rain in 18 hrs. Nuts

The last wall was opened up and is drying out. As soon as I got it cleaned up my body shut down. I think I'm getting sick. I'm going to bed early

Tracker- that is one of my favorite tequilas ! What an awesome thing.

Can't thank Matt ( rajincajingt) and my buddy Bambam for all their help.
The rest of you guys and gals too, what a spirit lifting bunch of aholes you all turned out to be.

PSA
The drain will be stuck in place on a 35 yr old tub. Lowes and all the local hardware stoores will be out of the correct wrench but..........

The barrel wrench for an M&P 15-22 fits it perfectly !
