While I was surfing on the internet I saw a video of converting a shipping container to a backyard shed, storeroom and office room. So I have a plan to do so.

    We are thinking about selling a house with fuse box. That will be an issue with inspectors and potential buyers. I want to convert it to circuit breakers. I would really like to use a bus conversion kit so I can use the old enclosure and not have to re-route ALL the wires (possibly having to...

Due to pipe clogs, the stopper accidentally being left in the sink, clothes falling into the sink, etc., the utility sink has overflowed several times over the years, resulting in water damage to our wood floors. We're having the floors replaced and...
