We found a new house today. A couple defaulted on it with about 2 months left on the build. It's a 4 bedroom Santa Fe and it's about 500 sqft bigger than our current house. Our realitor says she can sell our house in a few weeks, so all my time and money is going to be tied up in getting this house ready to be sold. Looks like I won't be going out wheeling anytime soon. :cry:

We couldn't get the 3 car garage, cause we wanted the 4th bedroom/study. Whats cool about it is the garage is shaped like an "L" around the extra room, and the space behind the room is big enough to park a car. So really we have a funky 3 car garage, or a 2 car garage with a huge storage/work area.

The lot is about 15,000 sqft, so I have room to build a shop on one of the sides in the back :D

Dave, the house is being built in the new Country Club area off of Greenbrier. Not sure if it's considered part of the Country Clubt, but I hope not. The view from the front is awesome.

Another cool thing, is that they automatically wire for dual RG6's, 1 RJ45, and 1 RJ11 in two locations of our choice. They also bring all the connections into a closet so I'll have cetralized cable modem/Switch connections. Wiring for the security system is also standard. I need to check with them to see if there is still time for me to run air hoses in the garage. I'd like to build a room off the side of the garage for the air compressor, and have air connections on both sides and one in the ceiling of the garage. Or maybe I'll save that for the shop.

What happened to your wrist Brian?

Thanks for all the offers for help guys, I'll let you know when we get closer. Just let me know what kind of beer and pizza ya like.

If I built a house, Id get the central vac. You have a huge vacumecleaner motor in the garage, and it goes to pipes in the walls through the hole house. you just plug the hose and handle into one of the "sucklets?" no heavy vacumecleaner to haul around, they are very quite in the house, dosent stir up dist or make funny smells....

That would be cool. My parnets house when I was a kid had that. its really cool.

your garage is called a tandum...3 car.

I did work in a house with one of those one time & it didnt have much suction.. Actually it was down right shitty! I have seen dust busters pick up more stuff than this little thing could do, & it was only drywall dust from the big ass hole I had to cut in some poor guys wall to get power to something.. Cant even remeber what I was doing there lol! :roll:

If you have like 10 connections to the system and if they all do not seal correctly when your not using that one, the whole systm will not work well. If you have a large engouh motor, and good seals at each connection it would be a good system.

If over time your pipe in the walls gets cloged that could also cause loss of vacume....

I had central vac in a house back east and I loved it. It worked great and never had a problem with it. The individual seals at outlets are usually the cause of a lack of suction and is easily fixed.

Just a thought, what the heck are we doin' talkin about vacuuming :scratching: :shocked: :wtf:

You guys talking about vacuum's or your jeeps?

You have me confused. :scratching: :p


To get back to the subject, my boss just built his big house with the central vacuum. He says it is great. Nice and quiet, easy to use, and works well.

Central Vac wasn't an option... But surround sound was! :flipoff:

They accepted our offer.. Thet is the house is ours when it's done if we sell our house. If we don't sell our house by the time it's done, we get our earnest money back and walk away as if it never happened. Our realitor says it'll sell quick, so I'm not worried(much).

Well, we got the house mostly finished this weekend. It listed yesterday and we had 2 people come to see it while we were at work the same day. Another came by today, and our realitor called to tell us he's making us an offer. Right after I finished that sentence our realitor called and she told us his offer. It's a little less than we wanted, so we made him a counter offer. We'll see if he accepts it. If not, it's only the second day, so I'm sure we'll be getting more offers. Wish us luck.
