    Cross posting from another forum - PVC beadboard wall planks?

    Can tape be used to pull it tight to the wall so the glue will set properly? Also, some of the big box stores let you rent things like nail guns I think.

    What is this stuff

    I've asked on the flooring forum if anyone can help because I have no idea.

    What did you do today?

    The town I live near got overrun with the gray squirrels. Town trapped them and a nice neighbor of mine agreed to let them be released on his property so they could roam free (he's got about 40 acres). My scumbag neighbor trespassed on his property & shot about 30 of them just for fun. My dog...

    Which is the best refrigerator?

    My dishwasher is a portable unit so I have a hose I hook to the sink's faucet. It dumps everything out into the sink through that same hose. I don't even know where filters and spray arms are on it. It hurts my back to lean into it. I always tried to position stuff so it would get sprayed. But...

    What is this stuff

    If you can't find your answer here, Flooring Forum - DIY and Professional might have people who can help. It's a sister site to this one. LVP and LVT (luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile) might also be an option for you. They make waterproof durable kinds now that don't require glue.

    Best friend's house burned on Easter

    Friend's ex got kicked out by her new boyfriend's family. Decided she didn't like the new boyfriend after he quit his job & couldn't buy stuff for her. She went crawling back to my friend who didn't want to leave her homeless. They aren't back together per se but she's back at the house acting...

    Which is the best refrigerator?

    Flyover, that's a good idea. My dish washing usually involves washing dishes first (bc they had to be washed before being put in the dishwasher bc it NEVER gets stuff off if they aren't pre-washed) loading it up, hooking it up, turning hot water on, turning dishwasher on, leaving. Coming back...

    How do you pronounce "multimeter"?

    I interchangeably say mull-tee meter and mull-tie meter. Just depends on my mood. I think I say the latter more often though. My electronics teacher said volt-ahm-uh-ter so I pronounce it that way.

    What did you do today?

    LOL. I'll have to snag some pics in awhile. I have small dogs. A chiweenie and not sure what the other one is but she's maybe 20lbs. Some of the cats are bigger than the chiweenie. Been exhausted past couple days. Not sure if it is my new allergy medicine. It's supposed to make me drowsy but I...

    Which is the best refrigerator?

    Saipan is a beautiful place- well, it was last time I went there-- which was about 20 years ago. Time flies. Small island. Lots of WWII sites. There used to be a 5minute flight from Saipan to Tinian. My mom went to the casino on Saipan while my dad and I went boonie stomping on Tinian. Found...

    Bathroom fan

    You're welcome. I researched it when trying to figure out what cfm fans were needed for my bathrooms. I kept notes on it so I would remember. There are other formulas to figure it out, but the divide by 7.5 was the simplest one I found. It's worth noting that you can subtract cubic feet for...

    Bathroom fan

    @femgroup to determine cfm you find the volume of the room in cubic feet (length x width x height) and divide by 7.5 and round up to the nearest cfm available for fans. http://www.airzonefans.com/Fan_Sizing_Guidelines_Red.pdf I have a room that is approximately 8'w*5'L*9'H, (360/7.5=48) thus I...

    What did you do today?

    The squirrels around here tend to be afraid of my cats and dogs. Haven't seen very many of them lately. To clarify about the vents on the side of my computer: I used to have a fan on the side but we reconfigured so I have top fans and back fans instead. The new fans work better than the old...

    Which is the best refrigerator?

    Keep in mind that if they say "made in America" it can include things made in Saipan by Chinese workers in sweatshop conditions because Saipan is part of a US commonwealth (of northern Marianas islands). Stuff made within the US now is mostly made by prison inmates because they can force them to...

    I can only pick ONE room to renovate; my son's playroom or his bathroom...

    Bob, I agree. Btw, I'd keep the grab bars for later use. Grab bars can be expensive. Since the bathroom is for kids, I would also consider having a handheld showerhead that they could reach. Probably not in the budget but KES Rainshower has a rainshower head with a built-in slide bar and a...
