soooo- my vote is for a hasi sign projected either into the night sky aka Batman style or onto the driveway, that and the roasting smoke and your half way to a cafe DJ set up.

 

also the Pav will need its own spot light, smoke machine and revolving stand with a GoGo dancer either side (one female and the other male of course) :good:

Not something like this?

Update is, there is no update!

 

It's nice when you have a level and seamless floor. But it's a forking PITA when you must not step on it for more than a week now!!

I'm taking this straight to the Forum Rants thread, gosh... falling waaay behind the stupid schedule :dummy:

Back to the future lied to us. We should have hoverboards by now meaning you wouldn't have a problem.

@joey24dirt would've chopped them up and turned hover tampers already...

Well, nothing special. Matte grey and even. And it has some darker spots where it forking won't dry!

 

But I have to get there now to empty the dehumidifier, anyway, so will do as requested... please hold the line...

There you have it.

 

See them darker areas? Devil knows why that is... and the sealing guy said they would need to disappear before he'd show to rub in his stuff.

Around 15-17°C, next to an electrical heater/blower that runs on low output dehumidification also creates smaller amounts of heat. Had it heated up to around 25°C between day 3 and 6.

Now that you didn't mention which type of 'body' there'd be hiding AND if our little one had his way, we'd be digging for dinosaurs now...

 

To me this looks more like an anti body, or maybe it's Chinese for 'good luck'... who knows...

Might be a gas pipe under there. It certainly has the shape of a pipe route and gas pipes sometimes create extra moisture in the ground around them. One gas engineer I knew could tell the route a pipe took through a garden based on the way the grass was growing more densely in the area around it.

Oh that would be thrilling!

Wish we had a gas pipe near our house to connect a roaster...

 

But I've built this house and can tell you there is absolutely nothing underneath :confused:

Another throwing-heat-money-out-the-window type weekend didn't yield much better results. By now I believe these spots aren't moist areas but rather somehow tinted/pigmented... come tomorrow hopefully someone capable of measuring building moisture shows up

If you have a laser thermometer handy, are these areas cooler?

(or warmer...)


Baseline: Bodum Arabica French Press, Pact pre-ground // Gotta start somewhere!

June-18: Gaggia Classic (2007) w/usual refinements; VST basket; Fiorenzato F5 w/lens hood mod.

Sep-18: Espro Ultralight Travel Press // Not cheap, but worth every cent.

Oct-18: ACS Minima Beta, Niche Zero. Pullman 18g basket & Big Step // Livin' the dream

Dang. It's mostly about beans, and consistency.

Not anymore after all the heat I pumped into that little chamber.

Also, the only near field probe I have handy is what the kids and I usually wrangle about upon their refusal to letting me take their in-ear temp ...but I'll check it out when I'm back home tonight
