Gotta love Texas.  Laws won?t change anything. People breaking the law won?t suddenly start obeying. Only a good person with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun. The sooner we understand that the sooner we can get to the business of making a difference.

I?ve seen installers hide cat 6 behind gutters. Use the direct burial garage. Cameras now are mostly PoE meaning you only need the cat cable to power and get the image data.

Coping the profile is the way to go. Especially on crown molding.  When I first started I thought I needed a fancy saw for crown but learned better.

I?d be all for bringing back public executions for people like the guy who shot up the school two days ago. A few pieces of trash like him hanging from a rope at the courthouse may discourage others from doing the same. At this point I don?t see what we have to lose by trying.

I was just saying this today, guy confessed. Find him guilty quickly (no bs) & hang or shoot publicly. I agree then leave the bodies on display for a month or so. Rule of law in these cases need to be executed swiftly.

No, we can't do anything really effective and tough.  We'd rather pass useless laws that only disarm law abiding citizens while doing nothing to deter criminals from obtaining guns illegally and killing people. That makes us feel morally superior.

This may not be popular but then I've never worried about that much.

All this drama around school shooting is just fodder for anti gun zealots.  If you recall BHO after Sandy Hook said "if we can save the life of just one child" as a reason to ban so called "assault" rifles.  While we need to arm these soft target areas here is the real truth. If you are concerned about human life but turn a blind eye to other more deadly and solvable threats, then I have no time for you.

Take a look at the information excerpt from the article, which is linked.  Illegal immigrant violent crime and murder are 100% preventable and yet, when it comes to illegal immigrants, no liberal is saying, "if we can save the life of just one child, or one american by fixing the illegal immigrant problem"

http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/crime/329589-the-truth-about-crime-illegal-immigrants-and-sanctuary-cities

The U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Sentencing Commission reported that as of 2014, illegal immigrants were convicted and sentenced for over 13 percent of all crimes committed in the U.S.

According to the FBI, 67,642 murders were committed in the U.S. from 2005 through 2008, and 115,717 from 2003 through 2009. The General Accounting Office documents that criminal immigrants committed 25,064 of these murders.

To extrapolate out these statistics, this means that a population of just over 3.5 percent residing in the U.S. unlawfully committed 22 percent to 37 percent of all murders in the nation. This is astounding.



Where is the libtard hollywood protest for these 25,000 senseless deaths?  What about the fact that medical errors are the #3 leading cause of deaths?

https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2016/05/03/476636183/death-certificates-undercount-toll-of-medical-errors

So until the same people screaming for gun control to "solve" for a few dozen deaths over a 10 year period, scream to solve bigger issues, I don't want to hear about it.

For some reason I pictured the cabin out a little more.

The plan is that the casita, the outdoor kitchen and the main house will form an arc of buildings that all face the cement pond...

When I looked into it, it required a demo letter from an agency qualified to purchase.  Such as a local PD who will write you a letter that they are intersted in say...having you come out and demo an MP7.  That allowed you to purchase an MP7 so you could go demo it.  Even if they didn't buy it your FFL owned it until you dissolved or sold it to a qualified buyer.

Dealing classIII and manufacturing are two different animals....not sure about the mfg

Thanks guys. No need Nate I have a EE friend with a master electrician license that I can have look at it. I have a 20/40 circuit 100 amp panel so I?m ok being somewhat conservative.  And will still have room to run the outdoor kitchen off that panel and leave room for future expansion.  I think I?ll end up around 10 circuits.

Good to hear Don. Jon my MIL was the same way. Complained how bad her knee hurts but won?t do the pre-op PT and complains about having to do it before hell do the surgery. Stats show without the necessary and painful PT the results are less than ideal. In the dawning era of pay for performance for physicians you will see more and more physicians refusing to treat patients who are non compliant because their income depends on getting the right quality outcome.

Well, worked on some wiring yesterday.  Stupid cold and humid yesterday.  The thing about Texas cold is near freezing and 70% humidity and a light wind.....I'd rather it be 20 and no humidity and no wind.

I've run electrical many times but this is the first time that I've had to plan circuits and execute from scratch.  Keep getting into analysis paralysis, but as with most things it will be over engineered.  Electrical is where I am most critical of builders not planning ahead like location of swithes, 3 way circuits, planning for undercabinet lighting, floor recepticles, etc.  If I miss one I'll kick myself forever. 

Keeping to NEC code standards is pretty complicated and not always common sense.  Bathroom has to have a dedicated 20amp GFCI, but can power other bathrooms, but not any fixtures outside the bathroom, but can't power other bathrooms if you put the bathrooms lighting fixtures on it and then the fixtures can only be a certain wattage....

Plus you have to have a dedicated circuit for the refrigerator....plus a 120v outlet within 25ft of the AC unit not downstream of equipment cut off. 

Yadi yadi yadi.....

Thanks guys. Really starting to take shape.  Boss lady is still debating exterior color. It will match the house. The question is whether I get to paint both the house and casita or just the casita to match the current color on the house.  She wants to wait until the pool is in to see the color of the flagstone to make that call.

Pool will be pebble sheen finish. She?s still debating the color on that and has to make a decision in the next week or so.  She likes the dark colors but since the pool is shallow she is concerned about it being too hot.

Ken that ?dirt? is pure red clay. Good thing is there aren?t any real rocks to contend with.

Temp is 30 degrees cooler than yesterday and the wind is blowing.  Looks like I?ll wire some circuits indoors today

Went back to hanging a little hardie and got the 100 amp sub panel hung and hole cut to the inside of the house to run romex.  Silicone sealed around the conduit running inside the house and across the top of the panel where it meets the house.

Today I ran a temporary satellite cable to restore tv. Then started clearing the porches in advance of the flatwork.  Empty shipping container came in handy. Also straightened up the shop a bit and am either going to hang some hardie or work inside on the electrical at the casita.
