    The hose at the cattle trough, is dual purpose.

    What did you do today?

    The OSB has a surface texture which, depending upon the material, can affect the appearance of the flooring product. I've never used OSB as underlayment, just A or BCI ply.

    Just a note, OSB, as composed, is moisture resistant, plywood is not, so, if you have a squishy floor, you have far greater problems, than OSB.

    HMMM, interestring. It sounds like you are receiving quotes from only design/build firms.

    You could name it, and if it doesn't like the handle, it may feel insulted, and flee.

    Fix Leaking Valve

    Interesting, that usually is the result of over tightening and the true fix would be in replacement. Were it I, I'd wrap some yellow teflonn tape a couple of times around and reassemble, as a temporary measure.

    A quote from post #10,926, "I like the "shall be smooth" requirement, because there is nothing smooth in a flexible ribbed connecter hose." The reason being is, any ribbed surface will be a dirt and lint trap., requiring more frequent disassembly and cleaning. Your time, spend it wisely.

    Fix Leaking Valve

    Welcome. I'm of the impression that, that is not a packing nut, and that after turning off the water, removing the handle and disassembling the valve, you'll likely find replaceable washers that have failed.

    Seismic Retrofit while Underpinning vs Underpinning for Heavy Traffic

    It jurisdictionally will affect the "assumption" of compaction, but interestingly, when road grading, the disturbed soils, within the public rightofway, but not paved, are left only marginally compacted, and that is likely a source of your slippage.

    Another question would be, have you measured the space to ascertain, if, any configuration of venting, will actually fit between the washer and the wall? Another thought would be, if there is an active door for this space, and it swings in, reversing the swing would then add a flexibility of...

    Seismic Retrofit while Underpinning vs Underpinning for Heavy Traffic

    There are a couple of expatriates, here-in, from tectonics central. Structural reinforcing has a cost/benefit factor, and how long will you need to occupy, for equalization, too become profit. If you aren't seeing any binding of the action of windows and doors, the structure itself is loose...

    Seismic Retrofit while Underpinning vs Underpinning for Heavy Traffic

    Welcome. Would this be in contemplation of New Madrid fault, as an eventuality?

    Thanks, evolution breads entrepreneurs. The DUSTINE example is similar to that that I had fashioned with sheetmetal and 2x, in the bed of my P/U, in the 70's. https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=IMPERIAL+26.5-in+to+43-in+Adjustable+Periscope+Dryer+Vent&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

    What did you do today?

    "Cleanup" I'm constantly reminded to do a better job of proof reading, BY GOOGLE SPEAK. The few that I've done were into a sheetmetal box with a slide cover, where you didn't need too disconnect the dryer just access with a long vacuum nozzle. I like the "shall be smooth" requirement, because...

    If longer radius fitting are used, the length reduction is reduced. Also, when there is a vertical rise, in the material exhausted system, a cleanup needs to be installed, because of the promoted condensation. I think that in shan2themax's case, she's attempting to reorganize the space for...

    Another thing to keep in mind are the fittings and their type, because each can shorten the efficient length of the duct.

    What did you do today?

    In 1 instance, in remote and not often serviced area, with similar space constraints, I used transition and a section of rectangular duct. While not being ideal and requiring being cleaned more often, it satisfied the occupant.

    That's a standard process. Each jurisdiction retains their archives, as they choose, and will periodically evolve them to a more volumetric retention method, especially commercial developments.

    And you'd suppose that a small unincorporated business, like target, would exercise that, error in judgement?
