    Thanks for the tips, MrMiz!

    "Luxury" Vinyl

    Thanks, I wasn't thinking about quarter round, but it would have to be small against the tub, not the normal size that would be against a staircase. Or, maybe I'm just making that up, but I see it in my head. Another benefit to the same color throughout and no carpet is no transition strips...

    "Luxury" Vinyl

    Yeah, I'm still thinking about new carpet in all the bedrooms at the last minute, after all my stuff is in storage. How would you install LVP in the bathroom, up against the tub?

    "Luxury" Vinyl

    Ok, well it sounds like you are running into the same situation, as replacing the carpet with hardwood will result in a different color, correct? As far as the church, I would get carpet remnants for where the chairs and tables go. That or scrap everything and have all new carpet put in. Now...

    "Luxury" Vinyl

    I could do all one shade, but then I have the extra color, probably 700 sf of it. I would put in that flat carpeting in the classroom. I don't even know if it's called carpet.

    Ok, what about bedrooms?

    "Luxury" Vinyl

    I have decided on Wellmade Golden Arowana Sandalwood from Costco because I got a sample from them, and it's solid, better than I expected. It also has underlayment attached, at the in warehouse price of $1.90 sf, and is the same color as my cat. Now to the questions. First is an opinion, would...

    Well, you wanted entertainment. Nothing is more entertaining than the Chupawappa, Minnesota Beaver Anal Gland Go-Get-R Farm. Ok, I made that part up, but I bet Cousin Eddie would do it because it's free. I guess it didn't make the National Lampoon's cut, though.

    Lawn maintenance help

    If you're gardening, try a fertilizer called Sea Magic. One pack makes a gallon concentrate, which will last a season. I have seen it bring a Blueberry bush back from near death, and a Stevia plant grow a foot overnight. It's mainly used for Tomatoes and Peppers, which will give you TONS if they...

    Lawn maintenance help

    Hey, did you know that in food products when you see the ingredient "Natural flavors", that is most likely from the Anal Glands of a Beaver's Butt? Serious. How they get people to go get the gel... It's a gel straight from the source, I don't know. maybe they have Beaver farms in the middle of...

    Lawn maintenance help

    Yes, I am Cave Man. I have as much hair as the Blonde guy from NCIS LA, and I didn't know I could grow a Goatee. That of course I can shave off, but I'm just letting it go. I'm getting sick of chewing on my whiskers though.

    Bathroom exhaust fan not effective

    It was 20, 25 minutes max. There is no variable that changed, that's why I'm just ??? besides a complete new replacement. It is 14 years old, so I can't expect it to do much more than that. I have never kept the door open.

    Bathroom exhaust fan not effective

    That's a good idea if I'm up in the attic. I assume it lays flat on the ceiling, I doubt they even braced it. I'll do a test and run the fan only on the furnace right after a shower to see if that helps. I'll check the duct size again, as Lowe's doesn't carry anything 3". maybe it's 4" after...

    Bathroom exhaust fan not effective

    Thanks, It's pulling air, at least 8 sheets of printer paper was no problem. In inspecting the duct from the outside, it had some dust on the sides, but no blockage. I'll look into getting a new motor, but something tells me it will be better just to upgrade. In the meantime, I'll probably...

    Bathroom exhaust fan not effective

    Thanks, but no. Bathroom door closed. No changes to the house, one story. I haven't ran a humidifier this year.

    Bathroom exhaust fan not effective

    My spare bathroom is 5' x 7.5', and until recently could clear the air after a shower in 20 minutes or so. Now it's taking around an hour. I figured either critters made a nest in the vent (No) or it was simply a 50 CFM unit or something like that. (It's 110). There is good air flow to the...

    No cornvirus thread???

    I'm tired of all the Governors acting like Dictators, they remind me of little kids that have no power suddenly being put in control of something. The Emmy's for that outstanding bunch are clearly being won by Michigan and New Jersey. My Governor Swastika here in Montana would have a much...

    Do I need more than base paint?

    Thanks. The store here has the Regal Eggshell at $58 a gallon, which is to the dollar twice as much as Lowe's Valspar. Being that I know as much about paint as 15th Century Solo cups, is there really that much of a difference?

    Do I need more than base paint?

    Huh. That Valspar is the only one I found on Lowe's site that was No VOC. Maybe I'm blinded by their current rebate. I would be willing to go to a real paint store if I was staying here forever, but for now I just want simple and looks good.

    Do I need more than base paint?

    Thanks. I forgot to mention it had to be VOC free, as that Valspar is. I'm not locked into that brand, but that's all I'm finding at Lowe's. I see they do have an Eggshell version, so I think I might be done here. Other than that, does anyone have a reason to stay away from Valspar? I ask...
