    Any plumbers near Deerfield NH? Seem to have a bad clog. Had the septic tank pumped today to make sure it wasn’t backing up. Tried to snake it, plunge it, poison it. Still blocked. Need someone that knows what they’re doing. ;)

    Electrician needed in Beverly, MA

    No electrical work needed. I just need two rooms run with ethernet lines. One room will need a single line, and the other will need two lines to the same location. Wires will need to go from basement to the outside wall in the two rooms. All I need is the wires run, I can handle the rest.

    How about a wireless system?
    This may not fit your use, but we use the Sonos at the office. Different people set up different playlists, sort of a rotating DJ, that gives us a huge variety. Sonos | Wireless Speakers and Home Sound Systems

    Sonos doesn't sell a wireless outdoor speaker. We have been moving a Play 5 in and out. I picked up the Amp and a couple outdoor Polk speakers and was planning on doing the install myself but I'm pussying out on putting a hole through the wall...

    Digital Photo Repair, and Colorization
    For the past 3+ years, I have been Digitally Repairing and Colorizing old photos as a hobby. I recently decided to reach out to various places I haunt and offer my Skills!

    B. W. Photo Repair and Colorization

    That website hosts a portfolio of some of my work.

    There is no set price structure, because every photo is different, but before any work begins I will examine the photo and quote a price based on how long I believe the photo will take to Repair and/or Colorize. If you accept that price within a reasonable amount of time, that is it. Even if it takes me 2x as long to finish it, all you pay is that price.

    If your interested or a have any questions, either PM me or shoot me an email at [email protected]
    Quotes are free. Trades are considered. :D

    Come on, man up and drill that hole! You will need a 12" extension bar and a spade bit. Drill through the log while avoiding the joints, and drill from inside to outside, angle the drill slightly downward so water will not run in. When the point of the spade bit breaks through the other side and gives you a reference hole, drill from the outside in, so you get a clean hole on the outside also. Run your wire, then seal up with a silicone caulk, or there is a beeswax caulk designed for log homes.

    I am interested in installing a 26 x 32 poured concrete foundation with a 3 or 4 ft high wall on 3 sides (wood framed wall will go up from there), for a 3 bay detached garage in Fryeburg Maine. The area where the garage will go is about 5 feet below the grade of the driveway, but right next to it, so I will also need that much fill. We have an alternative idea to just filling, depending on the comparative cost, and that is to pour the foundation as a 2 level, with the lower level opening toward the back where the existing grade is lower, and the upper level opening toward the driveway, where the existing grade is higher.

    Is anybody interested in providing an estimate and doing the job, or just throw out a ball park figure?

    Thanks.

    Any oil in it? I found a guy in your area on Craigslist last year who would remove the oil filter and donate it to elderly people and he would remove the tank for free. He did a great job. You might want to place an ad and see if he replies.

    Not really, I did a pretty good job last winter making sure to burn most of it knowing I was doing a gas conversion.
