The movie is for the turtles

I recently obtained a beach home that I am slowly renovating so I can rent it out during the Summer season, then the beach home needs lots of love; Since it is near saltwater, a lot of the metal inside the home is wrecked.

The washrooms need to be upgraded and the floors are coming up! I recently decided to supply the beach home up-to-date windows.

I wanted to spruce the location up and the old windows wouldn’t even open, who wants to rent a home that can’t have a window cracked? I called a window installer and found something interesting. Since I am on the beach and where turtles nest, I need to get special turtle glass. The windows have a special window movie that doesn’t create a glare with the sun. This does not change anything for the inside of the house. The glare is for the turtles outside of the house, however apparently the brightness coming off the windows confuses nesting turtles and they leave their eggs. Since the turtles are endangered, they need to keep those eggs safe. That means I am required to have turtle glass on any window facing the water. How much is this window movie you might ask? It is almost double what I was expecting to spend my money for windows! Every window is pushing 2 grand and I have four large windows facing the water. I have to do it too. The windows are so bad and I will get in trouble if I don’t have a safe movie over the glass for the turtles.

Having bifold doors custom made

Due to space limitations, I have bifold doors on most of the closets in the house, and when every one of us first moved in, I was honestly unhappy with this style of door.

They were flimsy, uncharming plus tough to clean. They each displayed louvres that trap dust plus need to be individually wiped, then i found it nearly impossible to get into the corners, plus I was never satisfied with the level of cleanliness, however because the doors were constructed of lightweight particle board, they didn’t open or close smoothly. They were honestly easily disfigured, however even the hardware such as the hinges, track plus handles were bad quality. I was eager to replace these doors. I maintained every beach house improvement store plus looked online plus found nothing better… All bifold doors seem to be constructed of similar materials, and options for styles are few plus disappointing. I finally contacted a custom furniture builder plus asked if he’d be willing to make me new doors! He was totally agreeable to the idea. I offered exact measurements of each of the doors I wanted to replace. Both of us then sat down plus discussed materials. I warned against anything too heavy as it wouldn’t glide easily on the track. I chose a honestly pretty maple for the doors with a light stain. I liked the natural look of the wood grain, then since I needed many separate doors constructed, the project took awhile. However, the cost wasn’t that much higher than buying a generic door from the hardware store, and now that the custom doors are installed, they are just charming; Rather than an ugly spot in the house, my bifold doors are a focal point. People often remark on them plus ask where I found them.

I need to find cheap printing services for waterproof printing

It’s taxing being an executive assistant in the office at our city’s largest boat marina.

I started as a easy deck hand in high university, although I swiftly proved our worth and was given new responsibilities as I got older and became more proficient with the tasks I was given.

When I was around the age at which everyone apply for university, I commanded to our boss that I stay with the dealer and forgo additional universitying under the condition that I could start toiling in the office. At the time this seemed love a enjoyable idea, however now I’m not even sure anymore. It’s nice to be in an air conditioned office all afternoon, however the work is harshly stressful. I have to coordinate meetings, deal with purchasers, file paperwork, and overall help the corporation stay afloat from a single afternoon to the next. The owners keep asking myself and others to print signs and post them outside around the marina, however they get wet and destroyed in a matter of afternoons. Despite paper’s apparent instability, I’m always blamed for the signs failing to last. I finally lost our patience and demanded they let myself and others use dealer money to get waterproof signs printed at a local print store. The only caveat is that they forced myself and others to call around and find the cheap[est printing services that offer waterproof printing. After showing them the bill, I’m hoping they will agree to purchase a special printer that is capable of waterproof printing. We’re a marina and this is only going to be an ongoing problem from here on out; both of us could save a lot of money by doing the waterproof printing ourselves.

Picked it because it was pretty

I am not technologically savvy by any means.

The only reason I bought a smart thermostat was because it looked pretty.

I originally bought our beach house with a beige thermostat that had a plastic toggle. It was super straight-forward to bump it as well as change the Heating as well as Air Conditioning settings. Frequently our fiance would complain as well as the thermostat would be set to 90 degrees. The thermostat didn’t exactly blend with our grey walls as well as colorless tile! When it came time to update it, I looked at all our options. It is amazing how unusual thermostats are now. The dial, basic thermostats are very ugly. They are a big, plastic square box that looks like it should be in Jurassic Park. The remote controlled thermostats are just as ugly as well as who wants to keep a remote on hand? The smart thermostat was the only 1 that looked attractive. It was small, lightweight as well as had a silver surround that matched our switch plates. It wasn’t until it was installed that I realized I got a lot more functions with this device. The thermostat now learns what I like heating as well as air wise. It automatically sets our machine the way I want it. It also alerts me on air filter swings, problems with the air quality as well as energy efficient settings. I even can see the outdoor temperature when I walk by it. I just love this convenient little thermostat. When I am late at the office ro on holiday, I can control it with only Wi-Fi connection. I don’t need to worry about pipes bursting or mold growing while I am gone.

Getting rid of the woodstove

When my husband and I moved into our lake loft it was apparent the previous homeowners had a colonial theme going on, they had a wood ceiling, half wood walls, brown carpets, colonial looking wallpaper and a wood stove right in the dining room… It was horrendous. The room had such potential though. I left the wood ceiling and just cleaned it up to brighten the room. The half wood walls were sanded and painted white. The other wallpaper half was detachd and painted light grey. Then I got new silver switch plates, recessed lighting and brand new grey cement floors. The last piece of the puzzle and most difficult was that wood stove. The homeowners didn’t even use it as a gas furnace. It was vented all the way to the roof, however totally clean; My husband was able to detach the piping and roofers patched and detachd the immense vent on our roof. Then when it came to the actual gas furnace, it was a mess getting rid of it. The wood stove was cast iron and it took 2 of us to move it. Finding a buyer for the gas furnace was difficult; No HVAC business wanted the plan because it was so small, however since the people I was with and I live down south, not a lot of people want a gas furnace enjoy that. My husband did find a guy that was willing to buy it for his hunting shack. It should have sold for more however the people I was with and I were desperate to get rid of it. I am so cheerful that I now have that extra space in the dining room.

Spending money on other things

All of my friends are getting married plus having babies.

They all easily look down on me plus guess care about I am messing up.

Nope, I don’t have a ring or a pregnancy on the docket. Instead I have a condo that I am updating. I am happier than a pig in mud with my house. Instead of wasting money on a 1 afternoon celebration, I can replace my home office with all brand modern appliances. Instead of buying a ceremony ring, I obtained a glass penny brick for my master powder room, rather than buy a bunch of baby furniture, clothing plus diapers, I am buying myself a ductless heat pump. The heat pump works by taking existing heat energy plus either pumping it in or outside the house. It is a cleaner, more efficient way to provide heating plus cooling, but you save so much on your utility bills each month with this system. It also is ductless plus can have numerous indoor air handlers attached to 1 outdoor unit. That means zone control baby! I have a thermostat attached to every device that is in every room. I don’t waste money heating plus cooling the office plus minute powder room. I only use a/c in the home office when I cook plus heating in the kitchen plus at night in my kitchen. It also looks easily modern plus cool. I bet the resale value of my home has gone up significantly too. I would way rather have good, quality Heating, Ventilation plus A/C than a wife plus a baby. My home will be perfect for when that afternoon comes too.

Hemp extraction labs use hydrocarbon solvents and solvent-less heat presses

If I could go back to undergraduate school again to do something different, I would learn chemistry.

I find it so fascinating now that I’m interested in drugs and their effects on the body, in unique the brain. Neuropsychology is an emerging field that is making drastic progress in mapping the human brain and understanding its behavior. In the back of my mind I see this as another fall-back plan, even though I just don’t have the currency to pay for the education. On top of that, I don’t think how I would secure labor in this field. For now, it has to remain a activity and side interest. It’s nice knowing cannabis and hemp extracts are made. There is a lot of confusion regarding solvents. Typically hemp extraction uses hydrocarbon solvents enjoy butane and propane, alcohol solvents enjoy ethanol, and also CO2. People enjoy the sound of CO2 because it comes across as a benign chemical as every one of us produce it with our lungs, however in reality it isn’t as good at retaining terpenes and minor cannabinoids as hydrocarbon solvents. People get sad that there will be residual solvents in the hemp oils and extracts after the hydrocarbon extraction is complete. Anyone following the basic instruction for typical hemp extraction will put the product through a process that burns off any residual solvents in the oils. But you could also get hemp rosin through a solventless process involving heat and drastic pressure. Typically a hydraulic press with heating blocks on it is used to extract the rosin from the hemp flowers without the use of a chemical solvent.
