That sucks for them, for sure. And the reason why the next house I build, if I ever do build again, will have sprinklers. The initial cost to include them in the build isn’t that significant relative to the total cost of the home, and they reduce the insurance cost and almost totally assure the likelihood of survival of a fire with minimal damage.
We considered it on the house we built in WI. At the time (1991) it would have added about $5k to the total cost of the house ($120k) but would have cut our insurance over 50%/year. -D > On Apr 14, 2018, at 12:59 PM, OK Don via Mercedes <firstname.lastname@example.org> > wrote: > > Hard Red Wheat. and weads. > > Speaking of OK fires - the hangar across the runway from us burned to the > ground yesterday evening - several load explosions, huge plumes of black > smoke - excitement all around.
