    Hello all, I am still working on my remodel and have reached the front porch. Adding the porch (10' x 16') also involved ripping off an old closet and adding it back correctly (10' x 3'). The back wall of the closet is one of the exterior walls and therefor backs up to the porch (total 10' x...

    The closet door in my room is currently indented 17 inches from the rest of the wall. Presumably, the builder did this in order to accommodate a standard 50 in wide x 81 in tall sliding doors, which are currently installed, as seen in this album.

    All, In the next couple of weeks I am going to be remodelling a walk-in closet and a pantry, and would like to create a system something similar to what the big companies offer using pre-drilled panels and the cam-style knock down fittings. Unfortunately none of the pre-fabbed systems will...

    Long time reader, first time posting... We were replacing the toilet in our hall bathroom and the darn toilet flange broke. I've included a few pictures of the situation. That's a rag stuffed in the pipe on account of the lady of the house being worried about "the sewer gas". I'm praying that...

    I recently purchased a home which happens to have a large cedar closet/room (covered entirely in the wood) for fur coats. As it is of no use for me, is there any way I could transform this into a sauna?

    I am about to begin construction of a new closet in our guest room. We have two options for the lay-out of the closet, but much prefer one for aesthetic reasons. Of course, it is the hardest of the two to construct due to obtuse angles. We have no idea how to frame out this closet so we can at...
