  • Posted in thread: Wiring new fan on 10-13-2008 at 12:05 PM
    I am replacing an old ceiling fan/light and am confused by the wiring. The former setup = two
    wall switches control the light only, the fan is controlled by the pull chain only. The new fan
    has a remo...

    Well they look like real wood (veneer) to me. I had a house built in 1997 that looks exactly
    the same. I think you can sand and paint, but not stain.Put some knobs on those drawers! You
    also have room...

  • Posted in thread: Suggestions with Kitchen Sinks??? on 07-24-2008 at 09:07 AM
    If you haven't already purchased your countertops, it might be worthwhile to ask the countertop
    company to "throw in" a free sink (and faucet.) Many will do this even if they won't lower the
    overall p...

    This makes me think. . . Ask your handy grandparents, etc. for a lesson or two while they're
    here. Ask for that best-ever apple pie recipe, ask how that garden grows, ask how they tuned-up
    a car, ask ...

  • Posted in thread: any opinions of pull-out faucets? on 04-28-2008 at 10:03 AM
    I am shopping for a new kitchen faucet and considering one of the new (popular?) ones where the
    actual faucet head pulls out to act as a sprayer. I don't use a sprayer much but like to have
    the option...

  • Posted in thread: Moving kitchen sink - how far can vent lines travel? on 04-14-2008 at 04:43 PM
    I need to move my kitchen sink (and dishwasher and disposal) to an outside wall. I determined I
    have enough room to provide a 1/4" downward slope per foot the drain travels. The supply seems
    simple en...

  • Posted in thread: Removed outlets & switches but lost power to others? on 04-14-2008 at 10:50 AM
    Thanks guys. I reconstructed the layout and restored most of the power, except for the breaker
    I blew out completely. It was helpful to find the live wires vs. 'not live' and map out the
    holes in the ...

  • Posted in thread: Removed outlets & switches but lost power to others? on 04-12-2008 at 05:44 PM
    To remove two kitchen walls I pulled out (and taped off) all the Romex from the 4 light
    switches and 3 outlets. I thought I would just lose the use of those 7 things but now several
    other outlets and ...

  • Posted in thread: move return air to floor? on 04-04-2008 at 06:33 AM
    I am tearing down walls to remodel my kitchen but one wall has a return air duct near the
    ceiling (no actual ducting in the wall, it's hollow between the studs.) There is only one other
    return air duc...
