  • Posted in thread: Cinder Block Interior Wall Insulation Question on 03-26-2015 at 04:45 PM
    Should be using 2" foam against the foundation for it to have any effect.That picture is
    missing a vapor barrier on the inside wall.Moisture issues with foundations need to be
    addressed on the outside...

    If some DIY did the second layer of drywall I'd be checking to see if those seams are even
    sitting over the middle of a stud.If not it's going to keep cracking.

    #1, What's your location? Yes it does matter, EG; no way in CA.By doing it that way the wall

    What type insect is it your trying to kill?A fog may kill some of them but there's no long term

    Can not see any part of your idea working out.Going to end up with wall and roof damage.No
    anchor is made for a brick wall that's going to hold a load in that direction.It would need to
    be through bol...

    The spacers only need to be attached to the stiles of the cabinet, not the wall.If it is not
    predrill you'll likely split the wood.I use trim head screws for this one.Only place you need
    to be attachi...

    Use tapered ISO board and it would add the needed drainage.ABC Supply stocks it, or any
    commercial roofing supply.

  • Posted in thread: Finalizing Cabinet Install, uneven ceiling ideas on 03-06-2015 at 07:54 PM
    You really have several issues, as you know the ceilings not level, but there's also no spacer
    on the left hand side so the door will not be able to open.Need to split the difference between
    the left ...
