That reminds me that I have a piece of siding that blew off that I need to replace.

That's an....interesting....way to construct a wall.

I don't know that I've seen a 2X beam above a top plate like that before. There's no header above the garage doors, so I'm guessing they put the header across the entire top of the wall?

okay....

Default Samsung Washer Recall

I have one of the washers on the recall. 7400 model. If I buy another samsung they will give me a 500.00 rebate. I paid 579.00 in March of 2015.

Part of me wants to get a front loader. After having a top loader that has an agitator and now having one that doesn't have it, i feel it doesn't clean as well when you put a heavy load in. Someone convince me to get a front loader instead. If not ill probably just get the repair they offer.

And the wall and roof framing/sheathing look to be in good condition, it's just the beam/top plate that's ate up.

I have front loader Maytag... It uses much less water and takes way longer than the top loader Maytag I had.

FYI, and JonnyD91 too; I researched the 'fix' and was extremely unimpressed.

They also send a tech to reinforce 'something' in the top of the washer, but they won't reveal any details. But it takes <20 min (they claim), so it's nothing major.

In any case, the 'fix' does NOT restore the original capabilities of the machine; and good luck drying out heavy bedding on a low speed spin.

I bought mine about 6 months ago as well. My big concern about replacement is I have a best buy warranty on my set now...so not sure that'd carry over to a replacement model from Samsung.
As per Samsung, 3rd party retailer warranties should be refunded on a pro-rated basis, as long as you bought from an authorized retailer. Just filled out the paperwork @ Lowe's last night, so I'll let you know how that goes.

Jonny beat me to it. If you own a Samsung top-loading washer from the last few years, this almost certainly effects you.

This is what we did; bought a 6200 series front loader last night. They don't sell a top loader that is not effected by the recall, so there's no advantage to replacing with a another (Samsung) top loader. Their rebate structure makes it difficult to justify switching to another brand (of course), so there you go. Just make sure it'll fit in your space; the front loaders are several inches deeper than the top loaders.

I am between the 6200 and the 6500 is steam the only difference? The 6500 matches the dryer a bit better with the silver panel. Did you look at the 6500?

I got the top loader from PC Richard, those ding dongs cant tell me if i can carry over the 5 year warranty to a new washer

Also what are the fine details on removing the old washer? Does samsung send someone to pick it up?

We looked at the 5000, 5200, 6200, 6500, and 7500. The 6200 was the right balance of capacity, cycles, efficiency, and cost. We've never had a steam washer, so we don't know what we're missing in a sense, but it wasn't a high priority for us. FWIW, the 5200 offered steam for less, but with fewer cycle options.

Might want to call Samsung to be sure, but they told me that I was fine to have the store haul it away during delivery of the new machine, but to remove and keep the labels w/ model and serial # information for the recall rebate.

okay....
Yea the whole house is built from rough sawn timber and there are some odd things I've noticed here and there. The header just above the studs is hollow in about a foot section. My dad and his friend (professional) are coming over tonight to figure out the best way to fix it. I'm thinking about jacking the rough sawn header and replacing the 2x4s and then putting a 2x12 doubler against everything. We will see... Can you rent those big screwjacks ?

Toured an early 1900's school house that needs some serious work yesterday. All the original woodwork is there and in very servicable condition. The floors I'd leave in their current patina but it needs a completed back to studs kitchen and bathroom redo. The only heat for this 3700sqft tri-level is a wood burner in one room. Windows are all single pane, some broken. However the roof looks ok and I couldn't see any cracks.in the foundation, nor.any black mold or signs of water damage anywhere.
The half acre it comes with needs attention and there's no cell signal or cable out there as it's about 3 miles out of town (welcome to rural Michigan.)

I took some hasty pictures in low light that I can post but they aren't very good. I didn't expect it to be open and there where no trespassing signs everywhere so I was in and out in a few minutes.

Asking price of $24000.

Yes, I'm pretty sure you can rent the screw jacks.

Look for Shoring post rentals.

Just called PC Richard, He said the 5 year warranty just transfers over to the new unit. They will come and deliver the new washer and install it and take away the old one. Delivery is also free so this seems like a no brainer.

Have pictures of the shoring they did for mine, if it's useful - but I hired a structural engineer & contractor to do it, so no first hand experience other than seeing their work.

Yeah, he's in for a bit of an easier go at it since it's just the roof....but the angle may pose an issue.

I have seen construction like that, but only when it's like a carport or porch. The double 2-by goes from post to post, rafters sit on that. If you were to close it in, then you'd see what he has, a wall 'closing in' the space between the posts.

But there's no posts, and that span across the front is way too long.

Looking at the picture again, since you'll likely have to pull that beam and top plate out from the inside, you might have better luck doing your bracing on the outside of the wall, under the eve/overhang portion of the rafters. This is probably close to the ground, and might also give you a flatter surface to secure the braces/supports to.

It also keeps the bracing out of your way while you work inside.

Obviously, if the lopped the rafters off, flush with the outside wall, you're ****ed.

You mean, aside for the multiple pictures showing the massive roof rot and damage and resulting water damage/mold throughout the place?

okay, that's a little better. That little glassed-in spot in the steeple would be a great hunting stand.

So it lists bedrooms and bathrooms...has this already been converted into a home, or are they just picking a room to call a bedroom?

That far out in the country, I wouldn't want that property that so close on the eastern side of it.
