    No beam in the ceiling

    When I moved into my condo there was a slight crack in the ceiling. It actually looks like it was plastered over and extends pretty much the whole length of the dining room, about 10-15 feet. When I tried to nail up the dry wall, I noticed there was no beam anywhere near the seam where the two...

    Asbestos under wood tiles?

    Hey everyone. So I was helping a friend dig up an old wooden parquet style floor in a foreclose he bought. The house was built in 1966. While digging up the wood panels a lot of dust was in the air, and thinking it was just concrete I didn't have a ventilator. Does anyone know if they use to put...
