    Where do you live, Sandbuoy? In Portland, we have lots of great local shops that pay for
    authentic pieces like that. Search around - a lot of times you can describe/send a picture of
    what you have and...

    It may not be reversibleeverything is reversible, it just might not be enjoyable :D

  • Posted in thread: renovating my bathroom on 02-17-2012 at 09:55 PM
    Finished a bathroom about a year ago... Read a lot of trend reports while we were in the
    process. Nickel fixtures are hot, buyers are looking for high-end feel (vessel sinks, tile,
    heated floor, etc.)...

    If you can take one off, there may be a "serial number" or brand name and barcode on the back.
    If the tile isn't too old, you can search the web for a match. Although the lots are likely

    For the stairs, you'll want to rent a floor edger. First, take up the carpet. Then,start with a
    coarse grit (around 120) until you're through the varnish. Once you get down to the bare wood,
    use finer...

    If you were willing to plant something in the center while it slowly rots away, I'm guessing
    you're in no hurry.... It's a slower method, but you can drill holes into the top of the stump
    using a 1" b...

    you could also use a powder actuated nailer. Might cost more to rent, but will likely save you
    some time. As nealtw says, though - don't forget the foam barrier, or your sill plates will be
    rotten bef...

    Good to know on the size of the opening! I don't suppose I could get away with 2x6s for the
    framing? We're already working with a really shallow 24 inches under there...

    hey RD - I just completed a similar project in a 1962 home. It's more work, but if you ever
    plan on selling the house, I seriously recommend pulling up the ply. Wear a mask, set a
    circular saw to the ...

  • Posted in thread: Crawl Space Access Door? on 02-16-2012 at 12:06 PM
    As a part of our laundry room reno, I just sealed up an old crawl space access hole that used
    to be under our washing machine . It wasn't anything special - literally just a hole cut out of
    the floor,...
