Re: Winterizing your home!

That is an excellent point about the chimney sweep! We also try to stock up on wood before the prices get too high. That brings me to my point, and that is about salt and ice melt. What is only a few bucks today, will be very expensive once stuff starts falling from the sky. We try to stock up on it...

Re: Access door to crawlspace INSIDE.

Thanks again for the replies. My plans call for the stairs in the laundry room, about 50 feet from where I want to put the stuff. I think that I am between the big beams but will be inspecting when I get home from work today. We have gutted the bathroom right next to it and will have that floor and ...

Re: light switch

They sell them here in the online store, at a very reasonable price too. If you have to get a few, buy them all at once so that you can save on the shipping.

Re: Access door to crawlspace INSIDE.

Thanks for replying so quickly. I thought about gluing it to the door (trap door) also, or making a ledge inside that it could sit on, then when you open the door you could pull out the insulation and replace before closing. I really have tried to pay attention but maybe I missed why we should not s...

Access door to crawlspace INSIDE.

I debated if this should have been in the off topic section. I have lurked here for a while, bit my tongue on several occasions, and finally need some input. I have a 1997 Fleetwood Modular that is on a crawlspace. We own the land, it's set on a block foundation. If I had known that a little bit of ...
