just following recommendations :)

I am here incognito, so if my husband happens on my posts he won't know it's me...unless he reads this post then the jig is up. We started with a leaky toilet tank in our 27 square foot bathroom and it has turned into a major pain, simply because he will not listen to my suggestions. He hasn't ever done home repairs. I have, because I was married to someone who wouldn't so I did them. So leaky tank led to tank replacement. Carpet cut out of bathroom (ugh, yes carpet) underlayment taken out. 1970's grass cloth removed from the walls. Next thing I knew he has removed the window and plans to replace it with glass block. What?! Fortunately the window is to a now enclosed atrium, so it is less of a big deal than it sounds. So anyway, now we are at a standstill as he picks the brains of everyone he knows and ignores my input. So that is my story

Welcome to the forum!
If he posts here, answer his questions! If he follows the Internet stranger's advice a few times, bust him!!!
That's what my wife would do!
