Mobile Home Weatherization – Underbelly, Home

By weatherizing your mobile home, you have the largest opportunity to save on heating and cooling bills by addressing the underbelly of the home. Due to the factory construction process by which they are built, they have a large open cavity between the bottom board insulation and the underside of the sub-floor. This cavity is referred to as the “underbelly”. Some homes have larger than others ‘underbellys’. Typically when you are performing air sealing measures on the home, you will get the greatest reduction of air infiltration by filling the void that is the underbelly. There is little to no insulation directly behind the rim joist, which gives the home a broken thermal envelope. Blowing insulation into the underbelly will not only give the home a true thermal boundary but drastically reduce air infiltration by closing the void. This is done by using an insulation blowing machine coupled with approx 100′ of hose. Most big box stores offer rentals of the machines. Blown fiberglass insulation is to be used instead of cellulose. Fiberglass is naturally water repellant which makes it a much better choice by comparison.

  • Patchwork – The first thing to address before insulating the underbelly is any tears or holes that the bottom board might have. If these are not fixed then there is nothing to hold the insulation up. The most cost-effective way to accomplish this is by using a “Tyvek or Typar” house wrap as your closing material. You can staple this up to the existing material or you can use screws and washers aimed at the bottom of the floor joists. For smaller holes or for sealing up the patches, two-part spray foam insulation works well.
  • Blowing Insulation in the Center of the Mobile Home – The key to blowing insulation is knowing where to put the material. Mobile homes were designed to have the plumbing lines run through the floor near the heat duct so as not to freeze in winter months. The center of the home, where plumbing lines exist have to be blown with a low density. Do not over-insulate, otherwise the heat from the heat duct cannot get to the pipes, and they will freeze most definitely. You want to install the insulation to where you are filling the cavity but the material still has some fluff or buoncy to it.
  • Blowing Insulation at the Perimeter – Blowing insulation around the house, including the ends only if they do not have plumbing near, is where you get the most bang for your buck. The perimeter is defined as the outside of the I-Beam sections. Again watch out for plumbing, there is usually a couple of these sections that have plumbing. Blow the insulation to a maximum density, filling the void completely and packing the material in. This is where you stop the air infiltration and radiant heat loss/gain from the bare rim joist. Treat the ends of the center the same, if there is no plumbing.
  • Entrance Point – Gaining access to the cavities can be done one of two ways. Removing skirting or siding on the exterior and drilling holes through the rim joist is an option. An aluminum pole attached to the insulation blowing hose is typically used to enter the cavity. The other is crawling under the home and cutting holes in the bottom board, inserting the hose directly and patching holes when complete. The both have their pros and cons.

By keeping these ideas in mind, you can easily and confidently weatherize your mobile home’s underbelly.

Branch Accounting – Understanding the Basics, Home

Branching Out

When an enterprise, whether for profit or non-profit, grows or strategizes expansion, it usually opens additional locations. Banks, coffee shops, supermarkets, department stores, restaurants, beauty salons, airlines, and even government offices may operate in more than one location, domestic or foreign, to cater to the needs of their customers or clientele.

Such additional locations may either be in the form of an agency or a branch.

Branch or Agency?

Depending on its objectives, the enterprise may adopt the form of either a branch or an agency. Both are part of a central organization and while they conduct operations away from their home office, they are not a separate legal entity from the latter.

The key difference between the two lies in their degree of autonomy or independence. For instance, a sales agency typically does not stock inventory, but only displays merchandise, takes orders and arranges for delivery of the merchandise. In other words, the agency merely acts on behalf of the home office (H.O.), with the latter handling the other aspects of operations such as purchase of merchandise, advertising, and granting of credit.

The branch, however, has a greater degree of autonomy and thus operates more independently of the home office than the agency, primarily in the following aspects:

  • Provision of a wider range of services to customers or clientele
  • Exercise of greater management decision-making
  • Handling of more aspects of business operations, such as stocking of inventory, filling of customers’ orders, credit and collection
  • Maintenance of a separate accounting system

Separate Branch Accounting System

Reflecting this greater degree of autonomy, the branch typically maintains its own separate accounting system, while the agency does not. In fact, it is the home office which records all agency transactions in the former’s accounting system.

Such maintenance of separate accounting records by the branch and the home office facilitates more effective control over operations and enables top management to better assess branch performance and make strategic business decisions for the company.

Accounting for Branch Operations

The accounting transactions recorded by the branch are generally of the following types:

  • External transactions or transactions with parties external to the company as a legal entity (e.g. customers, suppliers, creditors, utility companies)
  • Internal transactions

    • within the branch
    • with other branches of the company
    • with home office

The recording by the branch of its external transactions and those which by nature affect only the branch (i.e. internal transactions within the branch) is done using the regular accounts and journal entries. However, in recording the branch’s transactions with the H.O., certain intra-company accounts will have to be created and used. Likewise, inter-branch transactions or transactions of the branch with another branch are usually coursed or cleared through the H.O. using intra-company accounts.

At the end of the accounting period, the branch prepares its own financial statements based on the balances of its accounts, but only for internal reporting purposes. These branch financial statements still have to be combined with those of the H.O. for external reporting purposes, in such a way that the resulting reports reflect the financial condition and results of operations of the company as a single entity.

Intra-company Accounts

At the time of the establishment of the branch, the following typical intra-company accounts are created in the books of accounts or records of the branch and home office:

  • Branch Books of Accounts

    • “Home Office” account

  • Home Office Books of Accounts

    • “Investment in Branch” account (one account for each branch)

The intra-company accounts “Home Office” and “Investment in Branch” are reciprocal accounts, meaning they are inversely related to or opposite each other. The “Home Office” account has a normal credit balance, while the “Investment in Branch” account has a normal debit balance. Whatever authorized transaction is recorded in one account should also be recorded in the other account. Provided all transactions are recorded, both accounts should have the same or equal balance.

The “Home Office” account appears in the equity section of the branch balance sheet, while the “Investment in Branch” account is shown in the asset section of the H.O. balance sheet. However, in the preparation of the financial statements of the company as a whole, these intra-company accounts are eliminated since they pertain to internal activities which do not concern the external users of the reports.

Common Intra-company Transactions

The following are the most common transactions between the branch and H.O. which are recorded by both, using the intra-company accounts mentioned above:

  • Transfer of assets from H.O. to the branch and vice versa (e.g. cash, fixed assets, merchandise inventory)
  • Recognition of branch income or loss (after closing of revenue and expense accounts by the branch to its “Income Summary” account)
  • Recording of expenses incurred by the branch but billed to and paid by the H.O. (e.g. purchase of office supplies by the H.O. for the branch)
  • Allocation of expenses by the H.O. which are chargeable to the branch (e.g. branch’s share of the cost of advertising undertaken by H.O. for the company)
  • Inter-branch transactions (e.g. personal accounts of branch employees for collection, transfers of fixed assets, authorized expenses incurred by a branch employee in another branch)

Reconciliation of Investment in Branch and Home Office Accounts

As discussed above, the balances of the “Home Office” and “Investment in Branch” accounts should be equal or the same. In reality, however, because of timing differences and recording errors, these two accounts rarely balance. There is therefore a need to periodically prepare a reconciliation of these two accounts to determine the reconciling items and record the necessary adjustments through appropriate journal entries in either or both of the books of the branch and H.O.

Branch Accounting and Company Growth

New branches not only indicate that there is company growth, but can also propel further growth. For this growth to be sustained, the information provided by the branch’s accounting system must be complete, accurate and timely so that top management can make the right business decisions at the right time. After all, “Many would say the information provided by an entity’s accounting system is the most important single source of information for financial decision makers” (Chalmers, Keryn, et al. “Accounting in Action.” Principles of Financial Accounting. 2nd ed. Queensland: John Wiley & Sons Australia, Ltd., 2010. 5. Print).

Building Self Esteem in Elderly Nursing Home Patients, Home

Building self esteem in elderly nursing home patients can benefit all that are involved with the aged person, from the Nursing Staff to the Kitchen Staff to even the cleaning Staff. Then there are also the Elderly family, if the aged person is happy with the Nursing Home then the Patient will show signs of being satisfied. Then the family will be reassured by their loved one’s voice that they have chosen the best place for their loved one to reside in. It is like a snow ball effect…one is happy and then all are happy.

Building Self Esteem

The Elderly are very vulnerable when they are at the mercy of a Nursing Home. If the Elderly are used to living at the Home and have a strong personality then they will feel reassured about speaking out and having self-esteem. But if they are new to the Nursing Home, or have a change in their care plan needs because of their own health then it is most likely that their Self Esteem will need to be reassessed.

To take away their independence and to take over their care takes time for the aged to adjust to their new way of life. It is a lot sometimes for the aged person to get used to. Most times the Elderly person was very independent at home and moving around freely but then end up needing care because their health changes, their eyesight changes or they have a fall and break bones. Once they feel like they are no longer able to take care of their daily living then their self-esteem is soon affected. It will become obvious that they have low self-esteem, and it will become very important for the aged well-being to have their Self Esteem Built back up.

Five Easy Steps To Build Self Esteem

  1. Ask the Elderly to help make decisions about their day-to-day living as much as possible. So instead of making choices for them, ask how the aged how they would like to be assisted.
  2. Give them a small tasks that they are able to complete. Even something as basic as folding the face washers or the towels make the Elder feel important.
  3. Ask the aged person what they used to like doing. Did they like gardening? Or painting? Or maybe sewing. Set up activities that the person is able to take part in and enjoy. You will soon see their Self Esteem boosted.
  4. Show the person you care about their thoughts, opinions and their history. Get involved in their earlier life and share their memories. If they have photos of their life then ask if you can sit and look through the photos together.
  5. Use the Elderly person name every time you speak with them in a conversation. Try to remember that person name so that they can feel important and loved.

Building Self Esteem in Elderly Nursing Home Patients takes time and team work. From the top of the management team to the AIN, EEN, RN, kitchen staff, laundry staff and also the cleaning staff. If the same view-point comes from the top of the staff to the bottom of the staff then it will shine through to all at the Nursing Home. The Patients will feel safe, will feel the love among the staff and will have their Self Esteem in tact.

There was a study carried out to see the effects of Self Esteem on Nursing Home Residents which you can read by going to this page Geratic Nursing

Keeping Self Esteem High

Once you have the Self Esteem back on track for the Elderly then it is just as important to keep the Self Esteem High. If one of the members of the staff start to speak in a voice that has no respect for the Elderly then all the staff need to pull together to turn the situation around and address the Elderly in a way that shows the person feels loved and cared about. It is important for our aged generation to feel love, to feel peace and to know that they were once an important person in society.

Interior Log Walls – The Causes and Repair of Water Stains on an Interior Log Wall, Home

Causes of Interior Water Stains

Water stains are the result of water contacting unprotected log surfaces. Before you begin to remove the stains on your interior log wall, you need to determine where the water originated. This may have occurred during the building process, gaps between the log courses due to settling or broken gaskets/caulking that have failed. Water stains can also be the result of a previous plumbing problem or just windows left open repeatedly allowing water to enter. Once you are certain the situation has been corrected, you can begin to repair the water marks.

Repairing Water Stains on Interior Log Walls

There are several methods used to remove water stains from an interior log wall. The best method may depend on the depth and severity of the staining. If they were caused during the building process and the staining is severe, you may want to consider hiring a log home professional to have the walls media blasted with corn cob, glass or walnut shells. Although this can be messy and will involve removing all objects from inside the room, it is very effective. Most log professionals will do their best to seal the area and help minimize dust from traveling into other areas of the home.

Usually water stains are in a more confined area and not too severe. If you decide to tackle the project yourself, start by using regular sand paper (fine to medium grit, depending on the log species) and a traditional palm sander. Begin sanding at the edge of the water mark. If they can not be easily removed it may be necessary to use an orbital sander or belt sander. Concentrate on blending the darker edges. It takes patience and care to remove the water stained area without removing too much of the log fibers. You can easily damage your log wall creating an uneven and undesirable look. You may be able to achieve good results by sanding the water stained area only and applying a pigmented stain. However for best results, once the water mark has been removed, lightly sand the entire log wall to allow for even absorption of stain and avoid color variations.

Staining Interior Log Walls

Interior log walls are exposed to areas of indirect or direct UV rays through skylights, windows and doors. Even if your interior log wall was not previous stained, chances are that over time the characteristic of the log wall will appear different.

Most log home coatings companies have developed products designed specifically for interior log walls. These products are typically water based and available in different finishes. Depending on your personal preference, you can choose a clear (non-yellowing) finish in a gloss or satin. If you prefer a pigmented stain, most offer different shades. Whether you are trying to match an existing log wall or deciding what color would best blend with your existing finish, most manufacturers are happy to mail color samples of their products. Applying a finish to interior walls will not only offer protection but also make cleaning the log surface easier.


In most situations water stains can be effectively removed without leaving obvious signs of water damage however, there are no quick and easy solutions. Your patience will pay off once you expose the new bright wood fibers just beneath the surface.

The Benefits Of Working In A Nursing Home, Home

If you are looking for a career that offers more than just a paycheck, working in an elderly care center may be the right option for you. Many people want to go to work each day and return home feeling as if they have made a difference in the lives of the people around them. Though this can happen at any place of employment, some people need a more concrete way to give to society and feel as if they are enriching the lives of others. Nursing home jobs provide an opportunity to care for a part of the population that needs it the most. Having a nursing home job is a very rewarding experience. If you are comfortable working with elderly people and you really want to feel as if you are making a difference and giving back, work like this may be great for you.

One of the main benefits is the opportunity to care for people. The residents of your elderly care center will depend on your for whatever you provide. This may be medical care, but it can also be dining, companionship, maintenance of their personal space or information and education. Whatever you are trained to do, it will be helpful to help people during their golden years. Even if you are not skilled in the medical field, you can still work in an environment like this and it can still be very rewarding.

In addition to altruistic benefits, you get personal benefits, as well. Since you will be around seasoned citizens all day, you will be able to share in the wisdom they have accumulated over the years. So many people work with their peers. This means day in and day out, you are spending time with people are just a few years older or younger than you. If you work in an elderly care center, you have a large group of people who have done a lot of living and can share their personal lessons, experiences and wisdom with you. Though not everyone you meet will be up for a long chat about life, there are many who are happy to share their stories and adventures with their caretakers.

Depending on your age, you may be faced with being a caretaker for an elderly person in your near future. People who are middle-aged and younger are on their way to caring for their own parents as they age. This can be a difficult and scary experience for those who have never gone through it before. Working in an elderly care center enables you to have the experience before you are dealing with it personally. Though it will not be the same, you will understand a lot of what you need to do and understand what your parents are experiencing when the time comes.

Finally, working in an environment with elderly people helps you get comfortable with your own aging. Seeing the rich and fulfilling lives the people around you lead will give you ideas for your future. Just because you are aging does not mean you need to stop living.

Tips To Consider When Buying A Home Safe, Home

A safe keeps your valuables safe. You can store anything from guns, jewelry, to documents there. To buy the right unit you need to consider a number of tips that include:

Buy the right size of safe

Safes come in different sizes. It’s up to you to buy the right size that matches your needs. If you want to store many or large items you should go for a large safe and vice versa. Many incidences have been reported where large safes have failed to get into homes resulting to the homeowners returning them to the manufacturer. To avoid this, you should take the measurements of your building before you head to the store. In addition to considering the location of the safe, also consider the size of the door frames and stairwells.

Go for the most secure safe

The reason you are buying the safe in the first place is because you want to secure your valuables; therefore, you should go for the most secure unit that you can afford. The first thing to look at is the material used in making the unit. For optimum protection, go for a unit made from steel. The unit should have a steel door that is at least ½” thick and the body should be at least ¼” thick. While the unit will be expensive, it will be worth it.

Another factor to consider is the locking system. Two of the most common locks used are dial and digital locks. Dial locks are similar to the ones you find in school. You open them by rotating the dial left and right until you input your combination. The cool thing with the locking system is that you can’t be locked outside due to a mechanical problem. The main flaw with it is that you have to hire a professional to help you with the changing of the combination.

Digital locks are common in hotel safes. To open them you have to put a given pin number into the keypad. Its main advantage is that it’s easier to open thus when you are in a hurry, you can easily get your valuables. The unit makes use of batteries that you should replace regularly.

A heavy object is cumbersome to carry and will put off burglars. Due to this fact, when buying a safe, pay close attention to its weight as the heavier the unit is, the more secure it is. In addition to the safe being heavy, it also should come with features that allow you to bolt it to the floor.

While most of the people buy safes to protect their valuables from thieves, you shouldn’t stop here. You should go for a unit that provides you with added features. In addition to burglary, the unit should also protect your valuables from water, fire, and other elements.


These are the tips to consider when buying a home safe. To increase your chances of buying a high-quality unit you should buy from a reputable store. After making the purchase, place the safe in an accessible location.

My Mobile Home Water Heater Pilot Light Keeps Blowing Out: Now What?, Home

Have you been having problems keeping your mobile home water heater pilot light burning? Does it blow out on every gust of wind? You most likely have a problem that can be easily fixed. Lets first talk about why this is happening.

The way wind flows over an airplane wing is the same way wind blows over your roof. As the wind reaches your roof surface, the wind on top of the roof speeds up and flows rather quickly. This has an adverse affect on stacks and chimneys of gas burning appliances such as your furnace and water heater. Wind then blows harshly down the chimneys or B-Vents, blowing out the pilot light. Lets get something straight though. If mother nature wants to blow out your pilot light, she will, and there is nothing you can do to permanently stop it. All you can do is persuade it not to happen all the time. When you have a gas burning appliance like a water heater or furnace that uses a pilot light, re-lighting it from time to time is perfectly normal.

What you don’t want to do to curb this problem is to install any screening around the top of the chimney or B-vent. This may seem like a common-sense solution, but it is very dangerous. In the winter, ice and snow will build on the screen material, causing a very hazardous situation. The flue gases can build up and become blocked. Spillage of the deadly carbon monoxide gas can occur, putting you and/or your family at great risk. Please do not solve your problem with this method.

A preferred method of curbing pilot outage problems is to install an exterior extension of the chimney or B-vent. The science behind this method is simple once you recall why this problem occurs in the first place. Remember that the wind picks up speed as it hits the roof? By raising the chimney or B-vent, you are changing the exit point the flue gases to a higher point, where the wind flows at the same rate as everywhere else. The wind will continue to flow faster near the surface of the roof while the top of the vent is untouched, not allowing wind to travel down and blow the pilot out. You can purchase exterior extensions at big-box home improvement stores and wholesale companies of heating and plumbing supplies.

Remember, solving this problem means working on top of your roof. If you do not feel totally comfortable working at that height, please call a professional to keep your mobile home water heater pilot light going.

How to Choose A Jukebox For Your Home or Business, Home

A jukebox can add a lot of character to your home basement or garage. In addition, a jukebox can be a large revenue generator for your small business. There are just a few important things to consider before you make that large purchase.

1. Media Type

What kind of media you would like your jukebox to play is the first thing on the list. For a home or personal jukebox consider the type of music media you already own. If you have a large collection of 45 rpm vinyl records then it would be wise to shop for a 45 rpm jukebox. However, if you own a large collection of CDs then, of course, you will want something that can play that collection. A jukebox intended for business use will receive a lot more use and as such, reliability and ease of use is paramount. In that case, consider a digital media jukebox. A machine that plays digital files will not break down as much as a CD jukebox which has more moving parts and discs which can become scratched. Ultimately the choice is yours. If you want the jukebox for its unique and retro feel than a CD jukebox will likely be the best balance of modern and vintage technology.

2. Age

Next, think about the age of the machine you are looking for. A collector may want one of the original Seeburg or Rock-Ola machines from the 1940s and 1950s. These will be more difficult to find in good working condition but the craftsmanship will be unmatched compared to the modern machines of today. Just expect that an older machine will require more work to restore it to working order and to keep it operating in tip-top shape. Modern jukeboxes have largely tried to recreate the feel of those mid-century machines with hand crafted cabinets and kaleidoscope lights but come with newer technology packed inside. Class D digital amplifiers, aux stereo inputs and more reliable mechanisms are just a few examples of the upgrades a modern jukebox will offer. If you wanted a jukebox that played digital music than modern would be your only choice. Some companies make digital music jukeboxes styled like the 1940s and 50s machines (Rock-Ola and Crosley), while some make machines that look more like a computer or iPad (TouchTunes).

3. Coin Operated

This is going to largely depend on where the jukebox machine will be placed. A business will most likely want a machine that accepts coin or dollar payments in order to generate additional revenue. A personal owner probably does not want to cough up a quarter every time they play a song in their own home. Of course, this is not always the case. A business owner may want to offer the jukebox as a free service to their customer while a personal owner may find it fun to have a coin operated machine at home. Just keep in mind that coin operated machines will be slightly more expensive than those without a coin mechanism. In some cases it can be in the order of 10% more in price.

4. Budget

Of course, one’s budget for the machine will largely determine what type of machines they can look at. If vintage is what you seek, the price will be largely determined by the decade you are looking for. Assuming a good condition and fully working machine, the most expensive vintage units will be from the 1930s-1950s. From this era, expect to pay somewhere around $20,000. Prices get cheaper as they get newer (slightly counterintuitive). Jukebox machines from the 1970s and 80s will run you around $15000 or so on average. A newer jukebox from the 1990s or even a newly produced machine from the current decade will usually start around $8000 new.

These are just a few of the things to think about when purchasing your jukebox. Personal preference will also play a large role in your selection. If it looks good to the eye than go for it. Just make sure you fully test and examine the machine before you make the large purchase, especially if it is a used or older machine.

How To Do Plumbing in a Log Home, Home

The exquisiteness of a home log makes this type of housing a popular choice for people looking for quaint and comfortable living. Now, because of innovative and easy to build home log kits, it is quite affordable to build a log home. When building a home log, it is important to consider the installation of the plumbing system.

Installing plumbing in a home log is not that much different than installing plumbing in a conventional home. In most cases, the plumbing can be hidden behind the wall cladding and within the floor. A plumber will install and run the pipe system in the walls of log homes that have interior framed walls. For log homes that have all interior walls, the plumber will build a chase-way in a room on the first level. The chase-way is a boxed out area in which the HVAC and plumbing runs through to the second level of the log home.

If a log home is built with completely round log floor joists on the second level, the floor will have to be built up to allow for the electrical and plumbing. This is done by creating a space between the tongue and grove by using taking 2″x6″ boards and standing them on end. Supplementary plumbing is passed through conventional stud walls throughout the log home.

When installing the plumbing, it is much easier and less expensive to keep the bathrooms near each other such as back to back or above one another if it is a two level log home. Galvanized steel pipe is generally used for the line from the well to the pump. As well, polyethylene piping can be used as it is lighter and more flexible. However, you should not use it for the hot water. It is also essential to consider whether the pipes will be exposed to the cold. It is important to make sure the pipes are properly insulated from the cold to avoid freezing of the pipes. The plumbing should also drain easily so that water does not sit in the pipes.

It is important to check with the appropriate authorities regarding the location of the septic tank because consideration for the location will include the type of soil, drainage field, and location of the well. As well, a plumber will have to install of the fixtures and make sure the pipe system is properly installed and functioning properly.

When building a new home logs, it is essential that the plumbing system can properly take water into the home and take wastewater out of the home to be treated. An inadequate plumbing system can disrupt the normal function of the system which includes leaks, backed up sewers, burst pipes, water overflow in the home, and more. When installing a plumbing system in a log home, it is essential that you hire a professional plumber to do the job. A plumber will ensure the plumbing system is installed correctly, identify potential problems, and check the entire system to make sure it is working correctly.
