  1. Re: Recessed light install: thru ceiling drywall or subfloor above?

    Sounds like going from above might be easier but it's not common practice. No need for chase holes in the ceiling. I would cut the recess holes from the bottom room though.

    Here's how I would do...

    Re: warped osb

    I would go back to the builder about this. I suspect the "ladybug" smell and the warping may be related.

    Some house wraps don't work if they are installed improperly.

    What is the chance that the drain between the trap and the joint (which should...

    Re: Shower tiling

    I think there's a different compound for joints on cement board. I know the tape is fiberglass or plastic.

    Re: Anybody know anything about swimming ponds?

    In this case, I wouldn't use shock or typical swimming pool chemicals either. The filter will help as long as you replace the cartridge every year.

    FYI, the cartridges are rated to be used for...

    Re: making a chandelier

    The lighting you use can greatly decrease the size of wire you need. Led take smaller wires. You can hide the "transformer" for other types of systems in the ceiling

    Re: leveling an installed floating floor

    The best thing to do is get out a level. If it rocks on that on spot it's the boards. If it has a dip under it then it's the floor and you can shim under these floors with paper or whatever the...

    are you sure that they would be hardy for your area?

  19. Re: Type of lumber to use for raised veggie garden

    I would use the pine. DO NOT use treated lumber of any kind. They leach chemicals into the soil which aren't good for your veggies or the ground surrounding your raised beds.
