    I would be sorely tempted to go the spray foam path with those numbers.

    I spent of number of years as our school district's energy manager and spit out spreadsheets on costs ad nauseam. When...

    Early '90's I was attending a math conference in Minneapolis. I and a couple of colleagues were waiting to be seated outside of a restaurant in Mall of America. A group of BIG men walked to the...

    Just off the top of my head if supported only by joist that are are 16" or 24" o.c., I would have preferred the 1.25" advantech. If you decide to add another layer, I would go with an osb product,...

    As Mike said, the NEC stops at the receptacle. I would change neither the circuit breaker nor the outlet.

    But if you do change the circuit breaker, then NEC says you must change the outlet to...

    My son worked for Progressive insurance. This question came up a couple of years ago on this forum and I asked him. His response was this (paraphrased)

    Yes, that is why I suggested running it the genny to your daughter's house. With judicious use of circuit breakers you could easily run both buildings on the one 7000-10 000 watt genny. She runs her...

    Rod, trying to understand this. Are you saying connecting two 120 volt generators in parallel will double the volts instead of increase the amps?

    Our Menards can special order the Foamular 600, ask your local big box. But even the 25psi stuff is pretty stout. Your house with the refrigerator or freezer on the kitchen floor is only speced at...

    Running two 120 volt gen sets will not give you 240 volts. But I donít know of any 9500 watt units that can not produce 240 volts.

    I would suspect a 10,000 watt portable would handle both loads for most events. A transfer switch would work, but an interlock is cheaper and more versatile. Run the power to the kids' house.
  12. Why would you need any more than a smaller gen...

    Why would you need any more than a smaller gen set, say a 5,000 watt one?

    edit: maybe I am reading too much into this. Are you trying to replace your feed from the other house or looking for...

    I would pretty much agree. If you use Owens Corning Foamular 400/600/1000 as your insulation board it will easily handle your 1500 lbs. loads. With a compressive strength of up to 100 psi, the load,...
