Insulate the floor. A minimum 2". 4" would be better.

It's Hard to heat the earth.

Will you be running the electric boiler off-peak. Many pepople up here run off-peak and when the run the pex they put down the foam and staple the pex to that then put 18" of gravel on top of the foam then the cement on top of that. This makes for a large heat sink and sometimes up here the off-peak is shut off for a day or 2, this type of system will hold heat for 2-4 days. another style that I have seen when researching on the internet is a hybrid where the 2" foam is layed directly under the cement but 20% of the middle is left open to the gravel beneath to create a heat sink, this way the slab will hold the heat longer than just having the foam completly covering the ground. I went with the pex in the cement and the foam completly covering the ground. This style heats up quick and cools down quicker than the other 2. We heat with an outside wood burner and in the fall and spring when the days are warmer I wanted to be able to shut the heat off and have it cool down right away, not have it heated for 3 days after it is shut down, this is are only heat so I wanted more control of the temp. Research on the internet, ther is a ton of info on there.

    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
