  1. Yea the first thing the lawyer told me is to absolutely not cash the check. I couldnt believe that they would do that without even talking to us. The other thing he told me was since they attempted to pay it removes liability from me, so they cant say im responsible if I have to sue them
  2. I was wondering why I never heard back from you lol, Well everything was going good, adjuster came out said the estimate looked good, insurance company called said their getting a check out. I get the check. the estimate was 12k to repair everything, they sent a check for $2900 with all kinds of changes to the estimate and depreciation ect... My contractor ( a friend ) handed it to his attorney to give them a "friendly" call to see if that helps, In the mean time Im doing as much of the work myself as I can.
  3. Kudu, Are you not receiving pm's from me, Ive sent you two now about 2 weeks apart
  4. Need an address, thank you
  5. If you fish for trout an easy one to start with is a articulated pheasant tail nymph. If your looking for larger streamers check out kelly Galloup
  6. so my 5wt wont work? Lol Yep got a 10
  7. You can purchase sinkhole insurance which covers if you have a sinkhole on your property or under your house that does minor damage. That insurance is expensive. Now my insurance without sinkhole coverage still covers catastrophic damage, so if my house was damaged over x amount of dollars its covered.
  8. Insurance is needed in Florida for hurricanes. In my case Im really glad we have it as their estimating this bathroom repair at around 12k. including the flooring in the bedroom. And including the dry out and demolition which was 2k alone
  9. Vic, you can get sinkhole insurance but it is crazy experience due to the huge number of s inkholes in FL. My buddy's company is mainly a sinkhole company and has since expanded into home renovations because it goes hand in hand, however my insurance covers catastrophic disaster so a sinkhole would be covered under my house but not in my yard. Im going to have my friend pin my house. He drills to bedrock and puts pins in so theoretically the ground could open and the house would still stand. Insurance is mandatory with my home loan but my insurance is $800 year. Houses are much cheaper here than most places. We have a 3 bedroom 2 bath 2car block home built in 06 on 1/3 acre its 3000sq under roof 2000sq living and we paid $118,000 hence why so many people find their way here.
  10. So what your saying is if I was to buy in bulk say $10 for 100 blades and turn around and list 10 packs for $5 a pack you would buy the 10 pack because the bulk pack must be cheap? Things can also be overpriced pieces of junk, just because its more money doesn't make it any better
  11. Good and cheap can "sometimes" go together. Especially when your talking outdated products like double edge razors, they will eventually stop producing them which will then make them more expensive.
  12. Awesome video!! Holy crap thats a ton of feathers in that thing, id be trying to keep a fish from eating it lol
  13. McFly, first I want to say what a huge improvement you've made with your videos since you got here! You got off to a rocky start but have seemed to settle in nicely! Thats a nice bird you took there. Personally I think the fly would be that much better with a cone head as said above but nice tie none the less. One request for us anyway. It would be nice to have a picture posted with your videos so I know what its going to look like as you tie it. But thats a personal preference for myself anyway. Nice job!
  14. Too many moving parts for me, and tangle mess with that handle.
  15. Are the Wilkinson made by Gillette? I found a box that says Gillette Wilkinson sword?
  16. Luckily I have no subfloor, Florida construction consists of cinderblock walls and a concrete slab, thats it. Tile directly to slab. Its basically gutted right now, the garden tub is getting replaced with a large tile walk in shower. Thankfully I hadnt got around to taking the wallpaper down in their yet so they are paying fo wallpaper which costs twice what skimcoat and paint cost which is what we are going to do. It wasnt a pipe after all. the outside faucet was poorly constructed and worked itself free of its seal and allowed rain and hose water to drain inside!.
  17. Yep an engineer will make you remove and replace any metal studs that have come into contact with bleach.
  18. Looks good! Tie a bunch more and keep posting.
  19. Yea, the mold guy said its a forced remodel, lol. We were going to do it eventually but today is the day. There going to replace the drywall, paint, replace carpet in bedroom as its continuous with closet, replace garden tub with tile walk in shower. And upgrade vanity, my contractor is a friend and hes going to eat my deductible out of some of his labor. Time for a glass of Bulleit
  20. thank you guys, The water damage is pretty evident and the main contractor is a good friend so him and the dry out company are going to be here when the adjuster comes, It ended up being uite wide spread. Ill post current pics in a few min, They are coming tomorrow to open the block
