Pyr_Pressure,

They better lol so much work.

2.5" hardwood Fir sanded and stained with wood filler between each board. Sanded the entire thing with a 5" orbital sander and stained it by hand.

Pyr_Pressure,

Yeah we wanted dark floors, medium walls and light ceiling. The walls in the picture are unfinished but now we have them stained a medium orange/brown colour.

I mean, I would buy that in a heartbeat. Where I live you would be lucky to get a 4th floor 600sqft studio for less than $300,000.

Not saying it’s good, just saying if that’s your nightmare then come to Canada.

Pyr_Pressure,

Why not keep the driveway and yard, yet still add the frequent bus service on every other street and other things? The driveway and yard don’t detract from livability. If someone wants they could remove the driveway themselves and plant a veggie garden or something.

Pyr_Pressure,

Personally I would prefer 600 sq ft and some outdoor space over 1000 sq ft and no out door space, that’s the benefit of detached housing. Otherwise you may as well buy a 1000 sq ft apartment.

Pyr_Pressure,

What older folk often forget is that not only could they easily afford a house in the 60s and 70s, but they likely also could on a single income. Many people nowadays are having trouble affording a house on dual incomes.

Housing keeps going up and couples are now having to split them with other couples just to raise a family. My sister and her fiance live in the basement of a house where his brother and sister-in-law live upstairs with a toddler and twins on the way. They won’t have enough room soon and can’t afford anything larger, and my sister wants to start having kids soon but the basement isn’t exactly larger either.

That’s one house for 4 working adults and potentially 4 children, when back in the day you could have a full house with 2 adults and 3-4 children on a single income.

My grandpa worked as a landscaper/gardener and was still able to support his stay-at-home wife and 3 children.

What is the best way to fix cracks before repainting (lemmy.world)

I am renovating my son’s bedroom and trying to make the walls as nice as is reasonable before repainting. There are a few cracks like this in the paint. It looks like on top of the drywall there is paint, wallpaper, and then a few more layers of paint. The cracks could be at the seams of the drywall from expansion and...

Pyr_Pressure,

Personally I don’t think you would need the tape. It’s usually for the gaps between sheets of drywall which can be significantly wider than these cracks. You should be fine just filling with the drywall compound and sanding.

For this you might end up seeing the thickness of the tape beneath the new layer of paint afterwards.

Pyr_Pressure,

Not sure what you’ve got going on but in the last year everything I’ve touched has gone green except for 1 or 2, one of which is almost neutral hardly a loss.

Costco alone got my like 20% gains.

Technically though if you are your boss and an independent contractor you should easily be able to set your own wage.

You don’t see plumbers and electricians being told they have to work for a certain wage by the building owner. They set their wage and if it’s too high the owner tries to find a cheaper one.

These drivers aren’t actually contractors though, they are employees being screwed over by being falsely classified a contractors. If they all collectively decide to charge $25 / hour, than as independent contractors they should be allowed to and Lyft wouldn’t have any other options other than to try and find drivers who charge less.

Pyr_Pressure,

How is a person who can’t manage their own meals and bedtime able to manage a company?

Pyr_Pressure,

I’ve never seen lights like that, I imagine that translucent plastic is simply to let daylight in. Probably switched out the front door at one point and couldn’t find one the exact width so got a narrower one, filling in the gaps with that translucent material. I wouldn’t think the switch would have anything to do with it. Sometimes people just remove a light and don’t want to bother taking out the wire and switch and changing the box and patching the drywall.

Pyr_Pressure,

You can go to the pub and get a better burger and a beer for almost the same as McDonald’s.

Pyr_Pressure,

Should someone be allowed to buy all the freshwater lakes around a major city and then not sell the water for people to drink?

It’s unfortunate that the writers didn’t plan this beforehand, so we could have had some foreshadowing a few episodes beforehand with a first meeting between the two where pelia acts a little weird (because she remembers her from 200 years ago).
