  1. Re: Kitchen tile backsplash: how not to show your age

    I've done my homework for months and and am pretty sure of the tile style I have in mind already. Actually, it's a lot like the green glass tile the used in the recent TOH Rhode Island house. The...
  2. Re: Kitchen tile backsplash: how not to show your age

    Re: Window seat+baseboard heating?

    Thanks for the guidance Johnjh20, but my husband and I are really hoping to do this without making mechanical changes to the baseboards. It's a weekend place, so only we fire up the heating once a...

    Chimney Surrounds: Opinions please!

    We installed a manufactured fireplace about 10 years ago (we love it), and I'm getting tired of looking at the "rocket launcher" metal chimney that juts out of the roof. Any suggestions on what works...

    I just ordered a Bosch-GTS1031 portable table saw as a surprise for my husband.

  11. Re: Shelf support systems: Corbels or Standards & Brackets?

    My husband is eternally grateful to you for saving him from the dark reaches of the rafters. Trusses? I'll check what sort they used for the vaulted ceilings over the front and back of the house. We...
  15. Re: Cathedral ceiling crack that keeps coming back!

    Thanks for the replies! I hear "structural" and I'm ready to launch my poor husband into the crawl space over the great room with a Mag light in his mouth! Do you think the structural issues could be...
