    Great job Bethany. Those under-sized shutters would have driven me up the wall and I would've
    loved tearing them off :)

    I found myself in the same situation. I'm hesitant to shell out the money most of those folks
    are asking so I've been playing around with "google sketch up". It's a real bare bones 3D
    modeling program...

    My apologies. As a matter of curiosity I checked the pipes here at the hotel and the sink drain
    does appear to attach to pipe extending from the wall without any fittings. Guess I've been
    dealing with...

    I'm not a plumber, but I've never seen a pipe connection where one pipe just slid into another.
    In the sinks I've had, one of the ends may be designed to fit into the flared end of another

    Thanks Glenn,I did speak with the local officials about two months ago and they mentioned what
    they called a 'plumbing permit' and the depth of the trench. I'll make it a point to ask about
    the backfl...

    Ok, so I received my, rather hefty, copy of the 2006 International Residential Code. I will be
    ordering a water main installation to the country estate and will have to run the supply line
    from the ma...

  • Posted in thread: Strange smell ! on 01-18-2007 at 05:39 PM
    Since it only smells some of the time and only in certain areas I might start by checking the
    ducts and attic. The only time I've had to track down a hidden smell (actually, a horrible
    stench) I was w...

    Welcome, I have a property that needs some TLC also and recently joined this board for the same
    reasons. Keep us posted of your adventures, you know what they say... misery loves company :)

    Thanks, Glenn. The house is in Gallatin. The renovation will be extensive and I wanted to make
    sure I was pulling requirements from the correct documents - otherwise, everything will be out
    of whack.J...

    I've decided that I can salvage a couple of floor joists from the house I'll be renovating.
    Everything else will have to get re-worked; this includes plumbing, electric, roofing, and
    anything else you...
