RE: Considering buying a fixer upper

Challa, We bought the same type of home for our daughter, Plan on a total rehab. Floors, walls& ceilings plus other things that you will find. we ended up around $5000 with us doing all the work over a 6 month period. If you have $1500 into it now you really have few options. If you talk to the owne...

New type of sheetrock

I was just looking through the Lowes flier in the paper and found "DensArmor plus" interior wallboard by Georgia Pacific. It is on the order of sheetrok but it uses fiberglass in both the face (instead of paper) and it is added to the core with the gypsum. Claims to be better fire rated and Moisture...

RE: Possible to "dress up" the "mighty missle

I would say that yes it is possible to dress it up, but I would also caution and remind you about the dangers of fires. I would talk to a few places that sell fireplaces, or woodstoves and ask for their ideas. Greg

RE: Replacing a floor in bathroom

It looks like 1/2" to me. you could either work with the end that you have now (should be 1/2" f/m pipe thread) or buy the compression type connector. A third option (more expensive) would be to buy a crimp tool (used to crimp the copper band on the fitting you now have) and just buy the push in fit...

RE: Replacing a floor in bathroom

It is most likely the PBS tubing, that was the forerunner to PEX. There were some people that had problems with it, usually at the connectors, if you have brass or copper compression rings at the fittings you are probably OK. You can buy compression couplings at the home centers that will work on it...

RE: Neighbors barking dogs

The first requirment for training a dog is to smarter than the dog! I agree try once more with reason, then file a complaint. Our dogs are known as "the loud dogs" they bark at everyone walking by, just to let them know they are there and you can come over and pet me (or give us a treat). The neighb...

RE: water heater ??

Most of the utility companies have useage guides for appliances, check wirh your's and find out the average use of KW hours and multiply by your rate. This will give you an estimated operating cost. Don't forget to add the purchase costs also. Generally unless you have to replace the heater it is no...
