We want to get new countertops and replace the cooktop we have which is 30 years old. The specs say that a propane gas cooktop needs 18" clearance to bottom of upper cabinets on either side. Ours are 17 1/4". There is a soffit above the cabinets to accommodate plumbing and the ductwork for exhaust fan. Obiously this wasn't a problem because the house passed inspection and was given a certificate of occupancy. Neither the cooktop manufacturer or the countertop people can suggest an answer to this problem. We're wondering if we should take down the cabinets and resize them by 1 inch or what?
You say how to post a question, but I can't find new thread anywhere in order to do this
I was surprised to see the plumber repair our outside sewer line connection with a rubber sleeve with a metal clamp on it, instead of putting in pvc.
Did he do the right thing? I don't think so...
Has anyone ever painted linoleum tile squares? I have a bathroom in a house that was built in 1958 and the tile is a very dull, shineless blue pattern - I'd like to paint it a light color to brighten the room up. Any suggestions as to what steps I should take? I DO NOT plan to sand the tiles or remove them because I am thinking they probably contain asbetos due to the year they were installed. Help would be very appreciated. Thanks
Where do I find information about who makes the sink which is featured in the Web site's Gallery Section * Planning and Ideas * Bathrooms8 * Updated Vintage
"From A Vintage Look for a New Bathroom, This Old House magazine, October 2003" Thanks
