And How Was Your Friday?

Friday, January 12, 2007

We bought our house October '05. By December of that year we realized that when the house got hot inside and the weather got cold out side, our skylight got all filled with condensation and would drip drip drip.

This is annoying even if you can look past the potential of thousands of dollars in damage. This summer, Jitteryjoe and his dad went up through the attic and insulated the thing. I'd like to know what the fuck the two bit builders were thinking to NOT insulate it in the first place. We figured the problem was solved.

I have been watching since September for drips and all was good. Until the weather decided to drop below -40C. The whole inside of the sky light was covered in an inch of ice. Ice that tended to drip and drip and drip.

Not sure how many hours we worked at melting the ice build up (blow dryer) and mopping up the water before it could ruin the ceiling. Yea , that sucked. Please take note of the wonderful ice, INSIDE the window.

Then there is the problem with pay per post. Well it's not really a problem. I like money, and writing those ads is a quick easy way to get money BUT I cannot stand how cluttered and messy and well.. whoreish it makes my blog look. And If I can't stand it, why am I expecting you all too? Here's the deal. I make a point only to take ads that pay 10 dollars or more, so in seventeen sixteen ads I will have enough for my camera. I need. Want. Salivate. Orgasm over this camera. When I can get two ten dollar ads a day I will post both of them, leaving you with four freaking posts to "read" Not that I expect you to read the ads, because I do NOT. If I can get two posts in a day that's only nine more days of ads. Can you all handle it? I hope I can.

In the mean time, because I really do like money I have started up a new blog. Its linked, but don't go hunting it down, In three months I will resume PPP'ing, over there. And it sort of defeats the purpose if you all head over there like everyone did to poor Mr. Fab.

Icing on todays Craptacular Cake : My 100 year old Great Grandmother who never knew me from a shoe, died this morning. Alzheimer's sucks y'all.

Sorry for your loss...

PPP's have never bugged me - if it's something I'm interested in, I read it. If not, I skip over. Easy.

Your skylight looks JUST like mine! Without the drips. Shit, got to go knock on wood or something so I don't wake up to wet carpet...

What's -40 in F? I get so confused...

My inlaws owned a modular home at the beach that had five sky lights that did the same exact thing. It became too much, so after fifteen years they sold. Other reasons too, of course, but to keep fixing and repairing became very costly. Good luck with that.

You are my second blog pal that has lost a grandparent this week. I am sorry. :(

100 is awesome. My great grandfather almost made it to 100, and he and I had some great times when I was a kid and he was the young age of 80.

Sounds like you actually need to replace the skylight itself. A good skylight is double-paned so that you don't have to worry about condensation and ice build-up on the inside of your house, just between the two panes, which then evaporates.

Skylights suck. I don't know very many people that have them and don't have problems. Even a double pane is probably going to have condensation on it when it gets really cold out. I wonder if you can add something like a Magnetite storm window to it?

I usually read the PPPs, they don't bother me too much.

Sorry to hear about your Great GRandma, I know it's hard to lose a family member, but at the same time when they are in that state it's almost releaving when they finally do go.

The PPP's don't bother me, especially if they are going to get you something that you really REALLY want.

Sorry about your grandma...damn.

I don't even notice the ads.

And as for that ice, I know it sucks big time, but from over here where I am not the one dealing with it, it sure looks pretty.
