  • How to Build a 12x20 Cabin on a Budget

    Agreed

    1 x 2 strips I assume was was to leave a space to put the foam insulation on before the flooring was installed, great idea I would also want to use some 6 mil poly for moisture protection .

    I also posted this question , from what I can see ,there is not much of a list but I am planning on doing this soon so I will add one here for my adaptation of this. You basically can start with 4 - 2X12X10 pressure treated lumber and 2 - 2X12X12 pressure treated lumber for the outside box and it appears he used 6- 4"X4"X8' for the uprights.Not much detail ,too bad but for the most part you can make it any size you want which will determine the material list.He wanted the inside to be full size so he used from what it appears 3 4X8 sheets of exterior floor (advantec possibly wax side down).Depending on what you want for floor strength you could set your joist every 12' but he used conventional 16" spacing , if you wanted to use it to store a vehicle or something I woul...

Again I will probably build some rendition of this and post my list if that helps.

    Very nice design, I plan on doing this project and will definitely post pictures , I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide a cut list of materials, I have some to get started but would have a much easier time building this if I knew what I needed first.Thanks for posting , i will also vote on this .

    Homemade TV Antenna

    Alright , I made 2 circles 26" with an additional 1" on each side, just a bit confused here , should I end up when assembled with a 52" diameter 26" radius?

    Just saying here, that looks like a good idea and I plan to build one , but I have found if all you need is a single tv, a short piece of coax with about 8" of the jacket removed a pretty darn good signal , I ended up with 23 channels.

  • HDDJ: Turning an Old Hard Disk Drive Into a Rotary Input Device

    very nice, looking to use one as an annenometer to measuer wind speed but all i have of the circuitry is the motor and not the controller.Can I still get it to work with what i have besides a few componets which i have around?

  • Ok hope this works for someone here,had the same issue, power out one side of transformer and nothing on the other.Customer had LEDs hooked up to the transformer,after several hours testing and working on it figured out that first off these transformers will not work without a load, no voltage,it require something like 25 watts to work otherwise no 12VAC. The other thing I needed to do was verify that there were no breaks in the low voltage wiring, I adapted a 25 watt light bulb to the landscape quick connect and moved it from the transformer to the point that there was no voltage and also found that over the winter between the pool under the stones and the patio block that the wire was running under there was a break which I quickly found with my homemade test fixture.

    How to make your own Arduino board

    Just a question here , can you just stack the blank chip on to the inserted programmed chip and then load a sketch? Would it harm the original one ,just wondering if it could be done that way.
