    I have a 20x20 pavilion that I want to build a 30ft "L" shaped bar with a cook area for a ceramic grill, sink, fridge, ice maker, and cabinet inserts. I live in Lower Alabama, so we get lots of rain! I intend to build the cabinetry out of lumber and then cover it with hardi-board and then...

    I purchased this used custom cabinet for $100 used. They originally wanted $200, so I think I got a pretty good deal. :) I plan on using it as a hutch/bar in our kitchen dining area. It doesn't have anything terribly wrong with it, besides a crappy paint job and one side got damaged during...

    I’m looking to add a new circuit to my electrical panel. There is plenty of space for the new breaker, but the neutral / ground bar is totally full. That’s not a big deal for the ground wire as you can have more than one ground wire to a screw. But it is a problem for the neutral as you are...

    Hello I got a 18"x60" granite slab (countertop) that I want to mount on the side of my garage wall in my backyard so people can place their drinks on it like a bar while we converse on sunny afternoons. I might even get some bar chairs for it. How can I mount this thing on the side of the...

    I've never built anything with wood so I'm trying to compensate by planning this out as much as possible. I'm a 3d animator so I created a digital model of my basement and built the bar digitally. I'm planning on building the real thing now (if the wife approves), so I'd like to know if there...

    In preparation for a basement finishing, I had my licensed electrician move my panel away from the service entrance. To meet code (distance from entrance to shutoff), he had to install a main shutoff outside, then run the cable to my relocated box (and which also has it's own main shutoff)...
