    Nestor, I'm sure there are some people who have time to read your lengthy posts, but I quit
    reading them a long time ago. I scan them occasionally and I see that you are arguing points I
    never made. I...

    Let's do it this way, Jim. I'll just prove you are wrong.You go right ahead. I came to share in

    Give it a rest, Nestor. You are NOT changing my mind. I gave my professional opinion. You gave
    your opinion. Let the reader decide which to follow. Unless you just want to argue, which, as I

    brasilmom, if you want to know more about Marmoleum or other brands of linoleum, you really

    Why do I think the OP has manufactured home?..If he does then the flooring is composite board
    or plywood.. Many homes these days are using OSB for subfloors and some are installing
    particleboard over ...

    Sounds to me like you are spending too much time in your head making comparisons. He's not your
    father and never will be. I doubt he's even trying to fill those shoes for you. It sounds like
    he's just...

    Cabinets should NOT be installed on top of ceramic tile. You may not realize it, but ceramic
    tile (and many other hard surface flooring) expands and contracts with temperature and
    humidity. When the t...

    I use AT&T too, but I live all the way over in California (the real Northern California). The
    DSL service has 2 tiers and I started with the lower priced one. It was relatively fast, but I
    am a speed ...

    I like the color combinations. Nice job. But the standard vBulletin buttons, icons and other
