I might just need to go to a camping place and get a bear proof container.
I need this done ASAP, or whenever you can get around to it.  Tomorrow is fine.

So . . . I really need to plastic the underside of my roof.  Can't possibly re-roof, so I'll reseal from beneath (again) as best I can and put up the plastic.  Leave venting space between the rafters, etc.  Should reduce air infiltration a lot and help keep the rain out.  (Ideally I'd put up rigid insulation and then plastic, but $$$.)

It takes a lot of plastic.  I shopped around, and it seems pretty standard that 10x25' of 4 mil plastic is around $25.  I'd need five rolls, to be safe.  That's expensive.  Four mil is the bottom end of what's sold as 'heavy-duty' plastic sheeting; 3 mil is 'medium-duty', and medium-duty will eventually rip itself off of staples under its own weight unless you use a staple every six inches or so.

I ended up at Harbor Freight's site, which has the 4 mil plastic at $25, same as most places.  Hmph.  But over in the sidebar the site recommended that I also buy a plastic dropcloth.  Which is 13x16' (odd size, maybe actually 4x5 m?) and a hefty 6 mil and costs . . . $2.

WELL.  I may not be a smart man, but I know what money is.  So I ordered 12 farking dropcloths for the price of one roll of plastic sheeting.  I think that gives me more than twice as much plastic as I need, but at that price I can't be assed to do math.

:shrug:

I am (for once) not complaining.

Huh!  I get Uline catalogs, but their stuff is usually really expensive unless you're buying in bulk quantities.  That's really interesting.  Makes me wonder what else they have.

See, if I did have real disposable income, I would just buy crazy stuff and not get around to using half of it.  I'd need to be wealthy enough to not need a real job . . . .

I'm the opposite. I just get six for ~$80 from Amazon. Prime, so no shipping.

It doesn't automatically occur to certain members of this household that these things are more conveniently purchased online.  :rolleyes:
