    Yup. This is, for me, the most compelling reason against those claims of the whole moon landing being faked. For one, I did work several Shuttle missions in Mission Control of the Johnson Space...

    No, all workers were stripped of tracking devices (phones), blindfolded (even truck drivers), and sworn to secrecy (and families threatened in case of failure) -- every workday.

    Or not.

    Is it possible the roofers used a sealant that is reacting to the heat? For example, I've seen Liquid Nails separate into a liquid and a paste. I'm not saying this is from Liquid Nails, but maybe...

    Yes, that is an excellent deal.

    28 panels * 200 watts / panel = 5600 watts

    The street price for new ones is very roughly $1/watt. So if those were new, it would cost $5600, PLUS shipping.

    Mr. Chickadee. Yeah, I watched several of his videos before someone clued me in that I should turn on captions. Watching is satisfying either way, but with his captions on, I learn a little more.

    An IR camera will show wetness where the naked eye will not. It appears very dark, if not black, where the dampness is.

    "Around" could normally mean like a belt around my waist (circumference).
    A diameter would be measured at the end of the log, edge to edge, like a slash changing "O" to "CD". I hope my example...

    Checks ("cracks" running with the grain) are generally not a problem, even long ones. A true crack going across the grain can be a structural failure waiting to happen. If you're seeing a check...

    Welcome, Jim. As you learn more about log homes, you'll find several different approaches to building. Kit homes are generally made of logs milled into timber, losing a very large amount of thermal...

    Those gaps that run with the grain are called checking and are not a structural issue. Checks are fine.

    Agreed.
