    acrylic.Perfect, I'...

    Often the 2x4 is attached flat to the brick and the mantle fits over that with a couple screws
    holding it to the 2x4. But the unit has to be built well so it does not fall apart when loaded
    up.So do y...

    I figured this would be the best place to ask. I just got an older home not sure on the year
    maybe around the 1970's or early 1980's. I was going to paint my fireplace but I also wanted to
    fix the man...

    Hello, I have been doing some research on this and I've got some mixed reviews. I've seen
    someone people recommend stain because it allows the brick to breathe but I haven't been too
    impressed with th...

    Do you have any bullnose tiles available to give you rounded edges?No I don't, all the cuts are
    going to the corner of a wall. I also realized that adding a piece of hardieboard to the side
    wall was t...

    you can get backer in 1/2 or 1/4 inch, would it be easier to just add to the thickness of the
    half wall to match the curb.That is a possibility but it would put the backer board past the
    door jamb. I ...

    Alright I have a few questions after finishing almost all the other work on my property about
    tiling my shower. I am using 12x24 inch tiles, ceramic, and I am not sure how to start the
    layout. Here is...

  • Posted in thread: Question on height of foundation with sonotubes. on 08-11-2015 at 09:54 AM
    Actually I've been thinking about it and drawing up a bunch of diagrams for the layout. I am
    starting to believe that a porch around the entire house would be excessive. Someone mentioned
    this and it ...

    I definitely believe in building codes. I am not an expert and I have limited construction
    experience especially in regards to framing. Which is why I am going to trust the expertise of
    people who hav...
