Shingle Sheets Printer Friendly Version
Imagine shingling your house in one half hour, rather than back breaking labor for days. If you were to place hundreds of shingles on one large sticky roll and have it crane lifted to the top of the house and simply stick the shingle sheets covering the entire roof, then you would have a very fast and efficient way to shingle a house. It would also not leak, because it couldn't be lifted by the air or any outside conditions of weather. It would also have no break in between shingles, and there for would seal the entire roof. The only tool needed to complete the very fast process is a utility knife, which would be used to cut off any extra shingle material on the edges of the house. It could look like a regularly shingled house, or it could be more designish and you could add any logo, design, pattern, look, or even cartoon characters. It would be cheaper to make, and even more cheaper with hardly any labor cost!

Furnace Modification Printer Friendly Version
I have a hot water heating system. The furnace heats the water in the small expansion tank, which goes thru pipes along the baseboards to heat the rooms. This same system also supplies the hot water to showers and sinks. In the cold of winter, average burning about 6 gals of oil per day to take care of these needs, and with ever increasing cost of oil, this gets expensive. My idea is that like one of these small electric immersion things that can put in a cup of water to heat it up. Could something on a large scale, some type of heat probe be inserted into the expansion tank of the heating system. After the furnace has heated the water sufficently, this item, powered by electricity, could then keep the water at the needed temperature, without having to use the furnace again, therefore saving the cost of burning oil. Could this implement be thermostaticaly controled, so that as water cooled, it automaticaly came on to bring water back up to the temperature needed ?

Bunk Desks Printer Friendly Version
Being a teacher, I find that my classroom is too crowded with lab tables to maneuver (16 lab tables for 32 students). I think I should be able to make use of the vertical room space with bunk desks. We could seat belt the students in up top.
