@musashi66 It's the poopsmith!
@manwich Architect here. There is some good info above, but I will add my advice.
Never put shingles on top of existing shingles. If you read the warranty terms and conditions on the new shingles, it will specifically prohibit this. The only time the IBC allows a new roof to go on top of existing roof is when you put modified bitumen roofing on top of a traditional asphalt built up roof. And even this can only be done only once before you have to tear everything off and start from scratch.
On the low slope roof, you need to put an ice and water shield membrane underneath the new shingles. You could switch roofing types at the low slope roof, but that would probably look funny and be more expensive.
Make sure you get a joint manufacturer/installer warranty. The manufacturer guarantees that the product will perform for a period of time if properly installed per their instructions. The installation warranty (from the roofer) guarantees that it was properly installed per manufacturer's instructions.
The big thing to watch out for is the vented vs. unvented attic conditions. It seems like you may have a combination of both conditions at your house. The fact that you have had ice build up on the roof indicates that their is a problem with your existing insulation and venting. Here is a decent primer on venting: venting primer.
Open and closed cell spray foams are not interchangeable. You need to make sure you choose the correct insulation, venting, and roofing conditions for each of your roof types (attic vs. no attic, vented vs. non-vented). Failure to do so will result in water vapor condensing in an uncontrolled location, which will lead to mold and rot.
If you contractor isn't able to clearly explain your different roofing assemblies, and how they will handle condensation at each different assembly, you either need to find a different contractor or hire an architect to design the different assemblies for your different conditions.
@skyfire77 There is only one choice:
target shooting place or a distillery to visit
My recommendation is to set up a weekend long Olympic decathlon. With event medalists and overall medalists. In each event 1st place gets 5 points, 2nd place gets 3 points, 3rd place gets 1 point. Last place gets -3 points.
You can make your own events, below are suggestions:
Find one bar that has shuffle board, darts, and billiards and make an afternoon of it.
sporting clays (private lesson if you have a good chunk of noobs)
@qaaaaa You are spot on with your analysis on this. I bought a nicely restored MGB for waaaay less money than the previous owner put into it.
@Darkbrador I own a 73 MGB. I bought it because I love the way the look, like the way the drive, and parts are inexpensive and readily available.
This is a good buyers guide from the best forum: https://www.mgexp.com/article/mgb-buying-guide.1
Like others have said, rust is the biggest deal breaker. Check the sills (under the doors), the floor pans under the footwells, and the rears of the fenders. You have to get under the car to check for body/frame rust prior to purchase. If the doors don't close smoothly and easily it is because the rocker panels are compromised; this causes the car to sag in the middle and the doors to bind.
parts are readily available and inexpensive. You could build a brand new MGB from all new parts if you wanted to (including body shell)
lots of upgrades and modifications available. lots of established engine/transmission swaps, superchargers, EFI kits, chrome bumper conversion kits, etc
make sure all the lights and gauges work (brake lights, headlights, turn signals, hazards, etc). Most of the wiring issues are caused by bad owners over the past 50 years.
You can get really nice drivers condition MGBs for $7-8K. check out MGB forums and local clubs. Older folks haven't learned how to use BaT or online auctions, and you can get great deals through those sources.
Great work (on the detailing and on the thoughtful present)!
@t0ast Gorgeous; perfect color combo too!
@EssExTee For real. My wife is from New England and I swear that every Aunt, Uncle, Cousin, Sibling and Nibbling hit up Dunkin every time they leave the house. When we stay with her parents, every relative who comes over calls and says "we're headed to Dunkin on the way to your place, do you want anything?"
@krustywantout +1 to wool socks. Wool socks don't have to be thick, I have dress socks in wool that are as thin as cotton dress socks but much better at breathability and comfort. Boardroom socks are great (and made in the USA).
I assume you have tried both foot powders and spray on antiperspirants?
@tae At least two of my architect friends firms switched all of their employees to laptops a few years ago. They all run Revit, Newforma, etc. fine without any issues.
We are looking at doing the same thing in my current firm, which is why I was asking around.
Great work! I need to clean out my garage and get it more organized. Once that happens a similar project might be in my future.
