Babington Ball Holes: Burner Modification Idea

Being quite intrigued by the Babington burner, I’ve decided to take on the task of building one. I’ve collected what I think is most of the parts, we’ll find out if I’m right once I get them more assembled. I seemed to have found a possible source for the ever-elusive hole making device. After trying Home Depot (hey, I can walk there from my house, and needed some other goodies from there for the burner […]

Quonsit Hut Shaped Barn Rain Collection System

I have a barn shaped like a Quonset hut, approx. 200’x80′. It has corrugated tin running vertically all the way to the ground. I can’t figure out how to build a gutter system for that or how to get the water into a tank even if I do. Any ideas? I asked this question last June, but didn’t get any ideas. Maybe now? Easy.

I have been investigating cheap alternatives to replacing my awful countertops. I have looked into painting them (it’s an ‘iffy’ situation), “wallpapering” them (that seems a bit more do-able), but then I learned about self-adhesive laminate. The problem is, I can’t find a retailer of this stuff. I called HD and Lowe’s and neither carries them. The gentleman at HD at least told me he carries the sheets, and I would have to apply my […]

Prepping Walls Best Way?

I’m not sure if I am going to paint or wallpaper my walls. However I’m in the midst of pulling off old wallpaper. It MIGHT be easier for me to put on wallpaper (I love wallpaper, honest, but we’re thinking to sell and so not sure about the wallpaper idea) because my walls are in pretty bad shape and I don’t have the energy or expertise to do a good job.
