    Re: Neighbors chimney

    Yeah, either make sure there's a nice, filtered chimney cap put on there or ask the city if they're in violation. Probably have a better chance with the latter.

    Re: Sliding window blinds

    I always thought they were just called Wooden blinds, and if you can't find them at Home Depot or Lowes or wherever, there's a website called Blindster that has some good deals.

    Re: Splash guard for gutters
