crestliner16, Hey, if you have the time and have a mobile home park near you, you might ask if they have any homes that are going to be removed or demolished. Years ago, my Dad and I took the siding off of 2 homes in a local park, then they just crushed and hauled the rest to the landfill. We built 2 storage sheds that still stand and a 8X12 perm that we sold, that now resides in the Backus area. I seen it 2 years ago and it looked pretty good for it's age. A little 'sweat equity' and a little time paid off. The scrap alum market is tanked so maybe offer $20 or so and you'll have a great deal, maybe more metal than you need so you could sell some and recover your cash investment! Good luck! Phred52

I have seen some people use a wood panel for the outside, anyone know how long that lasts?

Depends on how much time you put into it painting each year or so to keep it looking good. I would not go with any type of wood siding unless that is all you have at the time. Too much work to keep it looking nice and you will eventually have to replace it just like on your home. Just my $0.02 worth.

The folks that put up sheds like Morton bldgs etc. usually transport their tin with a sheet of off-color stuff over the good pieces. You might be able to get a builder in your area to save you that stuff.

I am looking at spray foaming the house and then putting a polyurethane coat over that to seal it. It been used for years on large flat roof. It being used on concrete and wood, marine surfaces, truck bedliners, and comes in many colors. It stays flexable and contains recycled rubber granules. It weights 10 lbs per gallon and cost is about $120 gallon, so its spendy. It would work on the floor inside the house also.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
