  1. Carpentry
    In a basic sense, I want to build a small bench, basically a rectangular plywood box you can sit on, with storage inside. Ideally half of the storage would be a cabinet, half would be two or three drawers, but if the drawers are too complicated, the entire thing could be a cabinet and that would...
  2. Roofing/Siding
    I'm having a problem getting a straight answer from anyone. I need to repair or replace a roof. What is the shelf life of a shingle? A local company has T Locks but I know they are somewhere between 8 and 10 years old. (If we replace the roof, we'll probably use malarkeys.)
  3. Carpentry
    I know that we have all seen the 3, 6 and 9-cube organizers a Wal-mart and Target. I am wondering if it is more cost-efficient to build my own out of real wood and stain it rather than buy the laminate one. Thoughts? Here is a link to what I am referencing...

I cut my holes in the wall flush with the studs on each side. The shelves...

    This is such a noobie question. I'm moving into a dorm this year and I want to build a very simple desk hutch for storage purposes. I'm basing my design roughly on the hutches found at collegesavers.com. They are way too expensive and I think building my own will be cheaper and give me...
  8. Building & Construction
    Do I have to do anything special to hang overhead storage in a steel frame garage? Monster Rax, for instance, says their shelving can't be used in a steel frame house, but ... why not, if I use self-tapping screws to mount it? Any information is appreciated!
  9. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    Hi everyone, I'm a bit of a novice DIYer, so be gentile! My wife and I moved in with her sister, and her new townhouse has 2 bedrooms with attached full baths. The problem is, only her (master) bathroom has a vented fan vent; ours does not. She proposed that we take turns showering in her...
