  1. Pest Control
    Our house was built in early 80's on concrete foundation. I started remodel in main bathroom. Tore out the old vanity to replace with new one only to discover that right side of old vanity provided plumbing access to tub/shower surround. I bought a smaller vanity and made a new wood panel to...

    We are remodeling a bathroom and our contractor is floating the wall tile above the alcove bathtub. We are concerned about a few issues: 1) There is a large tear at the top of the paper that is supposed to go inside the shower niche alcove. How big a problem is this? Our contractor says it...
  3. Drywall & Plaster
    Hi all. I painted my bathroom a couple days ago and took a shelf/cabinet off the wall to do so. I have no idea how it was hanging and don't know how to put it back (PROPERLY). There were four screws visible holding the cabinet to the wall. When I started unscrewing it, I noticed the screws...

    Hi everyone, first time poster here. We are selling our home and the buyers inspector is recommending we seek professional help for two very obvious holes in our plenum that have been there since the house was build in 2008. I've always assumed that these holes were extra drainage or line...

  8. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    Could anyone help me identify what is happening in my lawn. It is in the shade most of the time (you'll notice a lot of moss in there). Just thought I'd mention. In the summer at night, slugs are a common sight. Lawn is all lumpy. Looks like little piles of poop, but I'm pretty sure it's made...
  9. Carpentry
    Around 2 years ago, a home theater installer decided to drill a slanted 90 degree hole in an attempt to fish a speaker wire through the wall. He claimed that he didn't have x-ray vision, and sometimes, it's a hit and miss. As a result, if you look through the hole, you can see the sunlight from...
