  • Posted in thread: Finally... New Project Questions - Crown Moulding on 11-03-2008 at 04:31 PM
    Are the drywall tape joints bad, or is it just that the rough texture makes it hard to get a
    clean break at the paint color transition?If so, breaking the paint color at the picture rail
    would help wi...

  • Posted in thread: Surround Tub/Shower on 11-03-2008 at 09:56 AM
    Tough call. For fiberglass or other plastic sorts of surrounds, the only thing keeping the
    water out sometimes is the caulking between the pieces. This can be compromised pretty easily
    and then the re...

    I would second trying to talk you out of crown moulding at all. I think there is a general
    assumption that this is always an improvement and I don't agree with it, especially with all
    the odd ceiling ...

  • Posted in thread: Craziest system I've seen on 11-03-2008 at 09:41 AM
    This is my self-installed sytem from Radiantec. Three zones covers about 2200 sq.ft. Mild
    winters here, but if I was in a colder climate I likely would have went with 5 zones.

    If you cut one down, just make sure you buy a solid core one. The hollow cores can but cut
    down, but it's much more of a hassle. You have to re-install the bottom wood filler.

    You may want to look at the Dex-O-Tex website for your waterproof covering. They have systems
    that will be walkable and that can just be tiled over later.www.dex-o-tex.com

  • Posted in thread: Redwood vs Doug Fir? on 11-02-2008 at 10:09 AM
    It's admittedly been awhile since I priced redwood, but when I did my own deck a couple of
    years ago, Ipe was the same price as redwood. This is a tropical hardwood (and there are some
    other names for...

    And just for giggles- The preivous owner (83 years old at the time) had managed at some point
    to build some walls around this old, then broken, chest freezer in this cellar area. Now way to
    get it out...

    Here's some photos of the kitchen transformation. I left my wife alone one day to do the demo
    here. If you look closely, you will see a black wire poking through the ceiling. This was
    connected to a v...

  • Posted in thread: Asbestos Concerns on 11-01-2008 at 12:34 PM
    Back in architecture school 20 years ago now, I did a long report on asbestos. The thing that
    always stuck with me was not how MUCH asbestos could be lethal, but how LITTLE. I agree if it
    is in a soli...
