Like many of the hourses in our area, there are dark stains on the roof. At first I thought it was related to trees, but have since noticed that many of those houses are not even near trees. We did...

Replacing the motherboard a job for a DIYer?

Good Point

Thanks for the simple lesson in science. That makes sense. Maybe I need to go ahead with those plans for an add-on after all. With the room addition on the patio we would have what we need, assuming...

Worst case scenario is replacing the thermostat and maybe more. I've already put about 160 into it. Seems like it's too late to turn back now. The stove still looks good, and not that we need it, but...
