Discussion about the meme market and the latest news on meme stonks.
@redpillschool OH NO! I can't believe something that was backed by Jimmy Fallon and Paris Hilton could turn out to go down in value! I was assured, when I geared up against my house and took out all of those loans, that the NFT's were going to double in value every 6 months or so.
WHAT IS HAPPENING!!!!!!
My worker is removing the crumbling fire resistant clay board from the back. He'll replace that as well as removing carbon buildup from the window and generally polishing it up. It's solid as hell.
I canceled the masonry stove with bench because it was way too expensive and the room isn't quite large enough for it. It would work if the room was 20% larger. I'm hugely relieved though because this stove that I found was very cheap and I'm hugely ahead financially of the previous plan.
Sometimes it's just smart to abort on a plan that is going in the wrong direction. People told me that I don't need to pay the stove mason, but the problem with that is he spent time making drawings, and coming by to talk for a while, and talking with the brick factory, etc. So $25 makes a lot of future reputation problems go away. He can be disappointed but I not longer "fucked [him] over". It was just a bad idea with ballooning costs.Read More
I bought this used stove for $250. It has marble tops. The middle area can be used for cooking. The top area will keep food warm.
I'm told that this stove when new costs about $1200 or more, not less. I just found a new guy who is bringing really nice things from Germany. I also bought a really excellent marble wood table for $180. It's probably worth at least triple that. Unfortunately I don't have picture of it now.
@redpillschool I'm shocked to my core.
Who thought paying for images that are already fully available and indistinguishable from the original without having any practical differences beyond sentiment would crater in the marketplace compared to their free counterparts?
I'm just astounded
The back roof of the container is going up. This will the main place to store 3-5m long poles and boards. It's not easy to find really good places to store that kind of stuff. This will be fairly dry because my worker is making some side walls for the roof that will block almost all diagonal rain. If it's really crazy then the house will block most of it.
I figure that there is about another week of roof and flooring work until some basic beatification work starts.
