    Those rocks are also covering little small holes on that pipe? Are those rocks supposed to cover that or should I take them off?

    I m stuck with this roommate for another 6 months​, there s no way around that right now. but he steals from me when I m sleeping and when I m not home. Money, medications, jewelery,, etc.. I have bought 3 combination cash boxes, which he popped open all 3 w/ a butter knife. I got a secondhand filing Cabinet but it came without a key. I bought a bike lock and locked the bottom 2 drawers together but that didn t work b/c he just pulled out the whole two drawers that my stuff is in and took what he pleased. I bought I new door handle with a key lock but I m pretty sure he s pooped that with a card. Any suggestions whatsoever other than buying an expensive and virtually impenetrable safe??

    Best answer: Treated lumber is for use outside of the home. It is treated with anti fungi and anti bug chemicals. it should NEVER be used indoors! Because it is treated, it will cost a little bit more than standard lumber.

    Regular "non-treated" lumber can be used inside the home or out, but it can rot outside and be food for bugs if the conditions that it is being used is right!

    Typically any lumber that is used outdoors that will come in contact with the ground should either be treated lumber or redwood!

  • Will my apartment deck posts hold my hammock?

    Best answer: It's not likely that you'll snap the posts unless there's already damage to them. As long as they attached at the top and bottom, you should have no problems.

    Best answer: It's not likely that you'll snap the posts unless there's already damage to them. As long as they attached at the top and bottom, you should have no problems. Trust me I've hung ham in a long of precarious places and weigh a little more than you, like one end off a gas main and the other off an old strap pipe hanger. Or between a fence post and a clothes line pole. Or a jeep roll bar and a branch. Or my living room, attached to hooks lag bolted to studs.

    Like the one with a sickle and a hammer or the one with an eagle (like the nazi's) would be good. Their current flag doesn't look frightening at all.
