We're remodeling our guest bath and replacing an old tub with a shower. Shower is tiled, professionally sloped, and there's a small curb between the shower floor and bathroom floor.
My idea to save cleaning and money is something like this glass panel with no door. (Ignore the design.) I read that getting cold in the shower can be an issue, but since it's a tiny bathroom I feel that's less likely?
I am in the market for LS430 and not able to find much info about packages.
There was one seller who confirmed with pics about double pane but he was not sure which package as he was the 3rd owner.
I see few other 2004-2008 LS430 with navi but most of the sellers are not aware.
so is it standard or varies with package ?
Right now I'm trying to figure why am I stuck with a certain rhythm of dropping pieces and even though it has become automatic for the most part, it's still fairly limiting speed wise, and I think it has to do with me not paying attention to the incoming pieces at all.
So I wonder if there is a way to train specifically on that aspect of thinking ahead of time, looking a the next 2 pieces and automatically figuring out where they will go. I think that would improve my timing tremendously but I don't know how to force myself in that direction. BTW I'm practicing with Jstris at this time.
Welcome back to the rolling Pokemon project pan! If you missed the previous posts or want to jump in with the new year, you can read more about it here in the intro post.
We each choose 6 Pokemon (you can choose whichever you want, however you want) and then choose one item to correspond with each of these Pokemon.
So how did everyone do?
I know the return on investment for windows is low, but we just moved into a 1989 rambler with (I assume) original windows in a cold climate (a solid 6 months of winter plus long periods of time below 0). They are double pane wood casement windows and they get condensation on them every day since winter arrived. We get probably 1-2 inches of condensation on most windows and on our biggest windows, we get up to 6 inches of condensation. On our coldest days, we've had .5-1 inch of ice on each window. Before winter, we got fogging between the panes and there is some permanent staining/discoloring (not a lot).
Our house isn't drafty (we had insulation added recently and our installer said our house is "surprisingly airtight") but it does feel cold. We keep our heat at 70 but we need to be bundled up or in blankets most of the time. On top of this, there is a tiny bit of mold at the windows where the pane meets the sash.
We recently got a stress crack in the window. After the temperature dropped 50 degrees in 12 hours, we woke up to a crack that was two inches and is now over a foot. We sealed the crack (though it still continues to grow) but we plan to replace the glass in the spring. However, we are debating just replacing windows.
We plan to be in this house at least 10-15 years. I'm feeling like we should get new windows sooner than later - since they aren't a great return on investment, might as well get them sooner so we can enjoy them. However, I know people with windows that are 50 years or more old and while they are not perfect, they do the jobs and their owners manage fine. It's a lot of money to replace windows that might not need replacing.
EDIT: Our humidity levels are around 35-40% - lower on colder days.
TLDR: does it make sense to replace 30 year old windows that have lost their insulation abilities for a house in a cold climate that we plan to stay in for 10-15 years? Or should we just save our money and deal with it?
Any tips on taking care of it as well wouldn’t hurt to have either.
