      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Foundation?

Recommended Posts

If I had a unattached garage that was poured on a slab without a block foundation could I attach the house and the garage with a three season breezeway? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also I live in the country with relaxed building codes.

I wouldn't do it. I have seen too many roof lines moving around with the freeze thaw cycles. I have a buddy that purchased a house(with a foundation) that had attached 3 season porch(without a foundation) and he had water running in where the roof line moved. That is just my experience with it.

Can be done but you'll have to keep some things in mind.

Knowing the distance would help. If you can post a picture that would help so we wouldn't have to list all the possibilities of what and what not to do.

I was going to do the same,BUT my frost heave of the garage is 1&1/2-2 inches the neighbors is up to 6 inches.The only way I could think of doing it, was not to attatch to the garage but let the walls and roof float,then there is a possibility of leakage from non attached roof valleys,but a water diverter on garage roof would help,lots of maybes,like dont attach roof to roof but nail flashing on both and hope it flexes and takes frost heave???????????

Have not built the garage yet. Was thinking of putting in the garage this year and would do a breezeway later. Garage would be less than 20 feet from the house.

If you have not built the garage yet, it's easy..

Frost footings!! That would be the best way to build what you want.

Frost footings for the garage would be ideal. I'd then not go with a 3 season breezeway. I'd turn that connection into an Entryway/Mud room with frost footings as well or floor trusses. A picture would help.

If the garage frost footings are out of the question then you can't connect the house to the garage. You can still have a breezeway though. You can do it free from the house and garage. Or you could tie into the house and use a frost footing next to(not tied in)the garage. Nothing structural can touch the ground between those two points and there'll need to be enough clearance for frost. You can make a slip joint from ground to wall though.

You could tie into the garage(not the house) but you can't be sure the frost heave at the garage will be the same away from it. In fact because or the heat loss around your foundation the ground won't heave at all. So that option doesn't have a constant and I would not go with it.

I agree with surface tension I have a mud room between my garage and house and love it . It not that much money to put in frost footing if you plan to attach.

    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.

    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
