    Hi Gang!
    I just got back from a foraging trip to Lowes and Home Depot.
    It seems they don’t carry the blue or pink foam. Oh they have the thin (1/4”) but not the thick. The reason they gave was it was too fragile and the stock got broke up before it was sold. Almost word for word as if they had rehearsed the speech. Will try other places next week. One guy listing to a clerk and I said to try a rubber supply house. Some one handles the stuff because I bought it a few years ago. Oh Well just vent my flustrations!

    Try a building material supplier that sells masonary stuff. Home Depot here in the Phoenix area never carried it, and I did find some blue stuff at one Lowe's store, but there is a store that has a few branches around town that sells a lot of morter, sand, bricks and the likes. Some stucco companies use the extruded foam, so they stock it.

    Strange but our Lowes have 1/2, 1, 2, and 3 in stock. But you ask them for homasote and they look at you like you lost you mind. Must be one of them "part of the country" things. FRED

    is MS Minnesota or Mississippi? I wouldn't expect the southern stores to carry it, although it should help save on air conditioning costs. :cool:
