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.

    • I'm down about 35 pounds (315 to 280) in 2 months. I've been doing the Keto ultra low carb diet with a goal of less than 20 grams a day and it has been working well so far. My goal is 225 so I still have a ways to go. 
    • So, losing pressure when off at night and at low speed fishing. Small leaks like Rebel said sounds about right. If it is running fine when at higher rpm's then the fuel pump, fuel flow and carb are keeping up the pressure needed then. The pressure is slowing leaking out some where which has to be a small leak at the diaphragm, fuel line connectors, or fuel pump seals. Good luck.
    • Parity, lots of parity in this league, that is a good thing but it sure makes it tough to win. Cullen has two cups already including last year so I'd be fine with the Sens or Nashville taking the whole thing. 
    • Pinhole or small tear in diaphragm.
    • Looking for ideas of what to check next.  I have a 1991 75hp Mariner outboard and I am losing pressure on my fuel line.  I have to pump the bulb first time out in the morning and then again if I fish in one spot for a while.  If I do not it will bog down on me and may or may not kill.  If I pump the bulb too much while I am bogging down I will partially flood the motor and kill it.  I then have to turn the key for several 15 second bursts or more to start the motor.   I have replace the bulb fuel line twice to make sure I didn't get a bad one the first time.  I also replaced the fuel line from my built in gas tank to where it goes to connect with the bulb gas line.   Does this sound like the fuel pump?  I want to eliminate any cheap fixes that I can before replacing the fuel pump.  I blew a cylinder a few years ago and I assume the carbs were all redone at that time by my guy.   I owned it for the past 20 years and I have only used non oxy fuel.   Any ideas?  Thanks in advance for any help.
    • Preds make it to the finals.  I thought someone said they were the last team in and technically the 16 seed.   Who ever they face in the finals it will be a battle, hope the Sens make it.  But would be nice to see Cullen get a cup.
    • My hunt in WI this past weekend was tough as well.  I found tons of ramps, they grow everywhere in the area we hunted, but zero morels.  I saw a few pheasant backs, but did not pick them as they did not interest me.  
    • I finally just said screw it, so I picked a couple of guys that I thought would do good (Christie, and Rojas) and some over looked guys that have had a little success this year, and were from the area.  Would never had expected Alton Jones Jr, to go from 80 something place on day 1 to the top 12.  Glad he was on my team though
    • Added these for the fry pan to go with some turkey also.  
    • If you haven't planted your tomatoes yet......plant them laying down on their side. Pick off all the branches up to the top.Lay the plant in a trench and cover the stem up to the top. Put a soil pillow under the top. Just be careful not to break the stem (I have). Tomatoes are the only plant that will send out roots from the buried stem. You will wind up with a large root ball to feed the plant. This also puts the roots closer to the surface where the soil is warmer instead of deep where it is cool.
