A Home for the Kubota Implements

Because of the limitations of the size of The Garage Project, I won’t have enough room for the tractor, and to store the implements that are not in use. In the summer, I have the FEL (front-end loader) and backhoe attached. In the winter, I pull both of these off and put a snowblower on the front and a six-foot blade on the back. I need a place to store the off-season implements. We also want a place for all the garden tools, shovels, hoes, rakes, etc. We liked the DIY post and beam shed kits from Vermont’s Jamaica Cottage Shop. Because the Kubota’s ROPS is taller than a standard garage door, this was actually one of the few structures with an opening tall enough for the ROPS. We also wanted the shed to be accessed from the side rather than the end. Once we have moved on, a new owner might be able to use it as a pool house.
Our solution is the Camp Alcove precut kit. This shed is actually designed for a camping, to give an area out of the weather. We are modifying it as below:

  • No floor option. We will have a poured concrete slab. Here are the specifications for the slab. We will extend the slab forward under the overhang so it will match the actual footprint of the area under the roof.
  • We will be mounting a set of four antique rolling barn doors that were originally on a boat house on a lake in New Hampshire. I’m planning on making these bi-fold doors which will give us full access to the shed widthwise.

Kubota Garage Project

A Home for the Kubotas

We need an out-of-the-weather location to keep the Kubota BX25D compact tractor and Kubota Z122 zero-turn lawn mower.

We have several constraints that affect what we can build.

  • We have several trees near the property line we do not want to remove. This limits the width of the garage because I don’t want to land lock the backyard
  • We have two windows in the family room. These limit what we can do with the roof line.
    • Our first choice would have been matching the 12/12 pitch of the garage roof with the gable on the left. This is impossible because it would partially cover the family room windows.
    • We considered a shed roof but it would have had a very low pitch, likely 2/12.
  • The tractor’s ROPS is just a little taller than 7 feet. Because of this, we need to go with an 8′ tall garage door. (7′ is standard) There will be a door in both front and back of the garage.

Our solution is a flat roof with mansard style eves. There will be a very slight pitch to enable run-off, something like 1/2 – 12. We will put a short railing around the edge, to conceal the pitch, and make it look like a widow’s walk, roof deck. We will not have any access to the roof area, so are hoping we can keep the railing to 2 feet tall to keep the scale.

We are looking for a concrete contractor to pour the foundation and stem walls for the garage, as well as a general contractor who can frame and finish the structure.

Sears eCommerce debacle

No wonder Sears is getting kicked in the rear by Amazon and others. I want to buy a socket set, cool it’s on sale at sears for $17.99 regularly $29.99. The Newington store has two in stock. Continuing with my iPad I start the order.

I notice on the checkout page,it say something about use your “shop you way rewards points”. I think I may have some because we bought some school uniform pant’s for Jameson last fall.I login and sure enough, I’ve got a 7,000 surprise points good for $7 off the order. I click the apply points button and it places the order without applying the points. Great.

That’s OK, I’ll just cancel the order and be more careful the next time. After hunting around for a while, I find the hidden cancel order button and cancel the first order and I find the set again start a second order. This time when I click the apply points and checkout button I see there is a “enter your pin code” text box several inches over and down with some tiny text about rewards points.

Great so once again, I’ve ordered without the credit so this time I call customer service…no help there, the first level rep and supervisor both tell me they can’t apply the credit after the order is placed.

While on the phone with the reps who are continuing to be unhelpful, I use my desktop and start a third order. This time I enter a usual pin code and click apply. No that’s not it. I try another likely code. No that’s not it. OK I’ll try one more I use sometimes and it’s still not it. Still on the phone with the rep, I say it won’t take a pin code, what do I do. He says enter your zip code. Wow that works! How I was supposed to know that my pin code is my zip code I have no idea. I know I didn’t set that up.

Good, now I can place the third order however it’s now showing 3-5 day before it will be ready. I know that both of the two in stock are being held for me. I ask the rep how long before the system will catch up and return to stock the first one I purchased…three to five days.

I was tempted to cancel the second order but I’ve decided to leave it, when I go to pick it up, I’m going to make them cancel it and fulfill the third order with that set. Wonder how that’s going to go.

How a half price coupon for a state inspection almost cost me $700 at Portsmouth Ford.

…or how the service department at Portsmouth Ford tried to get me to purchase unneeded services for over $700.
March is car tag and state inspection due month for my 2010 F150. Being thrifty, I looked online at Portsmouth Ford’s coupon specials and found a half price coupons for a state inspection and another for an oil change. Portsmouth Ford is conveniently just across the highway from my office so I dropped it off on Monday. They called a couple hours later to tell me the front shoes were “frozen” and had ruined the rotors and that the rear rotors were “rotted”. Of course it wouldn’t pass inspection until I paid over $700 for calipers and shoes all around. It didn’t sound right to me, I had my last oil change at Bill Dube Ford in Dover in September. I called them and they checked my records and said my front shoes were half worn at the time.

I decided to get a second opinion and called Steve’s Accurate Auto in Madbury. They were highly recommended by a good friend, and I had recently discovered that Jeff Sinon who we used a decade ago was one of their mechanics. Jeff and I put together a chicken coop a couple weeks ago for the PCA fund raising auction.

Steve’s checked it out and the rotors were fine and the pads pass as well.

I may file a complaint with the state.

Migrating Sitecore users from one instance to another without losing their passwords using SQL 2008 R2.

You can copy Sitecore users from one instance to another using a package however their passwords will be reset. If you want to copy users without losing passwords The Inside Corner site has a page that describes how to migrate Sitecore users from one installation to another: http://www.theinsidecorner.com/en/SiteAdmins/SiteSecurity/SitecoreAccounts/MigratingAccounts.

This description is a bit out of date if you are using the database script method with SQL Server 2008 R2 because the SSMS wizard has been changed.
Here’s how to do it with SQL 2008 R2:

  1. Right click on the core database and choose Generate Scripts
  2. If SSMS shows an Introduction page, click next
  3. Select specific database objects
  4. Expand Tables
  5. Select all tables with a name starting with aspnet_
  6. Click next
  7. Select the advanced button
  8. Change “Script DROP and CREATE” to Script DROP and CREATE
  9. Change “Types of data to script” to Schema and data
  10. Choose whatever option to save the script that works for you, clipboard, file or new query editor window.

Cheers,
Paul
