    Due to the removal of a wall, I have a couple of circuits that aren't long enough to go
    anywhere except into junction boxes located in the 18 inch joist space below the subfloor.
    Immediately below thi...

    It's only one of the goofy things up here in this area. Building permits, plumbing permits, and
    electrical permits are all issued by separate agencies - equally stupid. At least electrical
    can be obta...

    I'm new to Washington state - never encountered this in California. In King County (Seattle and
    greater Seattle area) they require that if a homeowner gets the plumbing permit then he can't
    hire or ha...

    and laundr...

    Most newer dishwashers do not require an air gap as long as they are installed according to the

    No crown molding in the garage - probably should do that in the house first. My last resort
    will be the garage ceiling (hadn't though of that and that's why I'm here). I have to rip out
    the subfloor t...

    An additonal note: the problem with the floor is that although there is an 18" cavity below it,
    it's not a crawl space since it's over a finished garage (double 5/8 drywall under the
    trusses). If I pu...

    I have demolished the interior of part of my house, removing many walls. What I have left are
    some wires hanging from the ceiling and coming through the floor. Most of them are in the wrong
    places for...
