  • Currently replacing/updating light switches with decora and dimmers. I may have to have an HVAC study done because the registers in place just don't seem to be sufficient. Tips appreciated! Currently replacing all door hardware, which will include hinges. Is that wise?

  • Posted in thread: Tips for Painting Cinder Block on 04-22-2016 at 04:34 PM
    I have a cinder block wall around my back that is a reddish terra cotta color. The bottom three
    rows were painted a matching color to hide staining from mildew. I was told that comes from the
    house be...

    I priced an electrician - just a phone conversation - and he guesstimated about $500, including
    parts & labor. I had sort of priced things out at a bigbox and I was coming up at close to $200
    for part...

    Personally, I'm with sparky. I grew up with a gas dryer, had to buy electric in Texas and
    didn't find it nearly as efficient. When I bought the new house in Utah plumbed for gas (yay!)
    I paid $100 mor...

  • Posted in thread: Snap In, No Caulk Shower Drain Repair on 12-30-2015 at 12:21 AM
    Yeah, I got that far. Parts from 20 years ago aren't in the flow chart. They apparently have
    only the same info I could find. Their job is to look up and sell known published parts, not
    actually know ...

    I meant to include that. It's AB&A, L B 79, ABS-1 2000mm

    If you don't want to read the story, scroll down to "Repair Question." I like telling my
    stories. :). The master shower drain leaks and stinks. I know it leaks, and probably has for a
    long time, becau...

  • Posted in thread: Back to those 3-way Switches... on 10-24-2015 at 08:31 PM
    My question before about adding a dimmer to a 4-way configuration was helpful. As it turns out,
    I miscounted the switch locations and there are only three. Anyway, I finally got around to
    playing with...

  • Posted in thread: No Common Wire to Thermostat on 10-22-2015 at 11:08 PM
    Yeah, it's an odd contraption I'm not sure about. I get nag reminders about reviews, but I'm
    going to have to mess with it a few more times before I can speak intelligently about it. I'm
    sure few, if ...

  • Posted in thread: No Common Wire to Thermostat on 10-22-2015 at 09:56 PM
    Done! Now people can hack my HVAC. FYI, I got the thermostat free through a program I'm in with
    Home Depot. I'm supposed to review it. All I can say is it was much more difficult than it
    should have b...

  • Posted in thread: No Common Wire to Thermostat on 10-21-2015 at 07:31 PM
    You, sir, are a genius. :clap: That's exactly what they did. Now, before I crawl up to see if
    it's connected on the air handler/furnace, what are the chances it already is connected if they
    didn't con...
