    What comes first? Appliances or Cabinets?

    Like the title says...Do I install my appliances prior to the cabinet team installing the cabinets, or wait until after? There will be fills around the stove and the fridge will have side panels.

    Bathroom remodel-task list

    Since I documented all the items in my remodel, I figured I would share with anyone who may want it. Your prices may vary, as well as the quantities. Hopefully it will help someone. When you unzip it, it is an excel spreadsheet.

    So I finish my bathroom remodel today...

    Well, you can see the size of mine. I spent about $2400 but my tiling labor was free (daughter's SO is a tile layer on layoff). I figure the labor for that is worth about $2000 which puts me at about $4400 all in. I caught the tile on sale, as well as many of the other supplies, and then...

    So I finish my bathroom remodel today...

    I got the vanity in and plumbed, toilet set and hooked up and the shower fixture/cartridge installed. YAY! All tested good with no leaks, however..I turn on the shower and get no hot water. Hmmm...I know we turned on both valves. I check the shut-offs on the valve body, yup both on. WTF? As it...

    How to straighten drain pipe in shower?

    We did. Concrete pre-slope, pan liner locked into drain, then final slope. Never said we only used concrete.

    Rattling noise coming from furnace blower

    I had the same thing and it was the draft inducer fan. Easy to replace and took care of the problem. I paid about $100 for online parts and about 30 minutes of my time. Here is a link about draft inducers...

    How to straighten drain pipe in shower?

    Thanks, guys! Got the repair done and my tile guy built the pan and curb. The caulder fitting worked like a charm. Now the tile can start to be laid. Of course, I forgot to take pictures...DOH!

    How to straighten drain pipe in shower?

    Sorry, cast iron. As it ends up, the angle doesn't seem too severe with the bit of play in the drain assembly. I did speak with one plumber who wanted to break up the concrete all the way to the floor drain in the laundry, meaning walls would come down and re-do everything. Not happening. I may...

    How to straighten drain pipe in shower?

    We are preparing to tile out this shower with a custom pan and after tearing out the fiberglass insert, we found that the pipe from the larger pipe below (p-trap) was installed at about a 10-15 degree angle. It is in there solid, so what are my options? I don't think a flex pipe is good as I...

    Will it Fail, or Will it Hold?

    What if you get a piece of angle steel and run it acorss the top, screwing it into the top of the cabinet and into the wall at the studs, or a toggle. By running a low-profile connection at the top, you likely won't see it much or at all, depending on the height it is mounted.

    Anyone has the experience of using Toilet bowl night light?

    I mounted one of these above the bathroom door. Batteries last about year and it is just bright enough to not pee on your foot :p https://www.homedepot.com/p/Mr-Beams-Wireless-Mini-LED-Stick-Anywhere-Night-Light-MB700/205403776
