    Any pics? I can't make fun of something I can't see... [​IMG]


    Really, if someone makes fun of where you live, kick their ass... I live in a damn trailer, so your house can't be any worse... Granted, my trailer is pretty nice and only 5 years old... But it's still a trailer in a trailer park any way you slice it... But I'll be damned if someone other than me is gonna make fun of my house or me living with my parents... Well with bad intentions at least, I can understand a little fun among friends (e-friends?) :o

    I forgot to mention about the shop. It is a "double" garage with a carport on the side. I am pretty sure that it is smaller than a double garage, and it only has one vehicle door. Does anyone know the measurements for a proper home "double" garage?
    It is electric heated, but also woodstove (I love wood heating) so thats a big plus. It doesn't have 220 wiring, so i will have to add that. But other than that, it will work a lot better during the winter, then in the summer I can kick my mom out of the carport, and work in there.
    Overall, besides limited ammount of space to store vehicles, it will work a lot better than working outside in -20weather :crazy:

    The inside of the house is amazing. It only had one owner for 30 years, so it is in excellent condition. Too bad the realtor didn't put any pictures up.

    It will be kind of tough to move all the truck parts...but my moms friends husband has a flatbed truck for wide things, and we can rent a trailer for the rest of the tub and frame. The only thing is my mom, nor I know how to drive a vehicle with a trailer...so hopefully the guy that owns the flatbed truck knows how.

    Detached double garage, car port, RV access, 3 bed-3 bath, fireplace, upgraded kitchen, new flooring and fenced yard. Nice sounding place, congrats :waytogo:

    Im suprised all the measurements are in square feet, not metric. Ive always been told that the USA is the only place in the entire universe that doesnt use the metric system

    I don't really use metric crap. I pefer inches because half the people I talk to (ck5) are american. Also, I've always used inches outside of school, I dont see the need for darn metric.

    Look at the bottom right corner of the page. You can select the measurments in metric or Imperial.

    Why isn't your feet and inches the same as imperial?

    I guess they are. I always knew that the volume measurements from Imperial to US are different, and assumed the linear measurements were also different. I was wrong.:doah:

    LOL no problem. I don't live down there, so I thought maybe there was a chance it was different.

    Canada used imperial measurements just like the US (bigger gallon though) until 1978 when we 'officially' went metric. I was just starting high school at the time so it was a PITA to have to learn to convert when I grew up with MPH, gallons and feet and inches.

    I think the UK is still using 'some' imperial measure, and would be where Canada got the larger gallon from.

    At any rate, metric is tons easier once you wrap your head around it. I often work in metric when fabricating stuff at work. It's a lot easier, and more precise.
