I have been programming for over 20 years in various languages including C, C++, java, C#, assembler and basic. I even did some Fortran back on my first job. I currently develop in C++ and C# for Windows and ASP.NET for web. I also do web development in PHP and MySql.

comment Can I count on being able to cut galvanized pipe to size?
Second this. Either that or you need to rent a pipe cutting machine and some pipe threading dies.

comment How to buy a land and build a cottage in the United States?
Any construction that someone lives in will require a permit to build (including multiple inspections) and an occupancy permit. Most of these are administered by the county, so I would start with "Building Permits" for the website of the county the property might be in.

comment How can I efficiently heat a bonus room above a detached garage?
As other's have stated, it is often the most economical heat in terms of cost per btu. The air from a gas heater is warmer than that of a heat pump. With gas you have can it cool down when not in use and then bring it up to a comfortable temperature faster than with a conventional heat pump. With a heat pump, you can't drastically change the temperature without backup heat coming on. If power goes out, you can use a smaller generator to run the blower, or you might not even need a blower depending on the type of system. I would go with a vented high-efficiency forced hot air system.
