That Thing Raised Me

That Thing Raised Me

Adam and Ray talk about Colorado’s flooding issues, and why you shouldn’t skimp on your ceiling fan. They also chat about pilfering vs. looting, what to look for in a contractor, and how to quickly fix your flip-flops while doing construction.


Show Summary

Ray opens the show by himself and discusses his hoarding client and the awful smell of cat piss. Adam then enters the studio and talks with Ray about his new fireplace. The guys respond to a video question about drywall issues, and Adam goes on a rant about his dad. They also respond to an email about rigging light fixtures and Adam explains the importance of not skimping on a ceiling fan. Later the guys discuss flip-flop repair, dogs who eat through the carpet, and what it was like growing up in a closet. As the show wraps up, Adam and Ray take your calls about the Colorado floods and what to look for in a contractor.

*Please note: at 58:28, that is Ray coughing off-mic, not vomiting/dying.

    Cat piss is some highly dangerous shit. Once it gets on fabric, fire is the only thing that will cleanse it.

    Do not pump out standing water in a basement while flooding is occurring nor immediately after the floodwaters recede. The forces outside the foundation are met by the forces inside, in this case hydrostatic force of water of a filled basement and a saturated area outside the basement.

    Take too much water or too quickly during the descent of water levels surrounding your home, and the foundation is vulnerable to structural damage and your community probably has a distinction between damaged and destroyed. The latter will result in condemnation or requirements to bring the property into compliance for certain.

    Sad times and I understand feeling the need to do something; best case is to wait for the water to go away and be cautious and seek out information from your local government; they are responsible for taking the lead and should have contact information posted for general questions and a host of other resources of information and assistance.

    With all this damn technology around in the world, never mind the stuff you use everyday in your home/studio/cars…we can’t get a decent camera to take pictures of that fireplace? Whad you take that with? ’73 Kodak Ectachrome?
