ahhh just so many a man.. all about the independence, all about the stdioule, all about the tranquility but they owe it all to the woman who makes it all possible. Not such a loaner, not such an independent person- he was camping in someone else's backyard. Though I am glad that Walden Pond thanks to our romanticism of what Thoreau concocted in his own imagination led to the restoration of a beautiful pond. I, however, can say that I lived in a two room building that we built ourselves on land we own with no running water, no kitchen, no constant electricity ( we used a generator to heat up the building in the winter or cool it down in the summer for a few hours till we were able to sleep ( then let it run itself off) for three years. It was wonderful to hear owls, and chuck-wills-widows most nights in the spring and summer and I still miss sleeping with the windows open. Made my own lunch. http://eulddsiiez.com [url=http://wdhtbfrjmix.com]wdhtbfrjmix[/url] [link=http://yearezjomw.com]yearezjomw[/link]

Hey Traci!! No buzz kill at all. And I'm glad you brought this up beacuse I probably should have mentioned it in the post, we had an electrician look at ours when we had the ceiling open in there to make sure we were good to go. What we were told was that the important thing to look at is the support, like she commented on the the video. She used a bracket but we actually have a 2 x 4 cripple it's called secured to each ceiling joist and our bracket is secured to that. If only we'd known at that time that we were going to want a bigger box.
