Save 2K DIY EPOXY

Posted 08-31-2014 at 10:42 PM by mrs5150

I am very impress with myself! Yes, I did my 3-car garage floor..I was quoted close to 3k for paint on my floors!!!

I gotta say that the prep work was the hardest but not worth 3K..but then again my garage is only 15years old.

Changing a breaker?

I currently have a 30 amp breaker that keeps tripping. Not all the time, kinda goes in spells where it will trip every 5 minutes or so.
I am in the process (next day or 2) of changing said breaker with another 30 amp. My question is, can I change it to a say 45 amp? Would that screw up anything?

I am not very experienced at electricity, so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Removing a wall

Do we really need to put all 3 in the ceiling? They are all only about 4 feet apart. We would like to only have 2 relocated, and just get rid of the third. Any suggestions would be great.

Ductless mini split systems

These systems are made up of an outdoor unit and an indoor air handler. Since the air compressor is located outside the home or building, this helps keep the system quiet and does not disrupt your home or office. Standard heating and cooling solutions run off one thermostat and...

The health benefits of the simple act of properly caulking your shower panels.

Today as I was in the process of staging tools to drop into my crawlspace, I decided to take on a relatively small task of recaulking the tub. We've lived in the house a year, and the caulk job done was bad, but when you have fire hazards, leaky roofs and a 93 year old house sitting on cement blocks instead of a foundation, caulk seems low priority.

I've suspected the house of contributing to minor but frequent colds and coughs, but I've been focussed on bigger things like having ducts...
