I agree that if it's just two bays, then the effort will not be worth it over traditional fiberglass batts to make a noticeable difference. I just think fiberglass is so outdated as an insulator....

I like triple-panes even in climate zones that don't...

Dan, I happen to have less money than time, so my choice was clear. :D Are you having built a lot of cabinetry? I only have a 2 1/2 ft wide and 8 ft tall cabinet/shelf and a vanity so it won't take...

No tiling as of yet. Not even putting up some Kerdi. That's the sad part. The good part is that I finished building six raised-panel doors in solid oak that will go on my vanity and cabinet. Tomorrow...

Nice window, that! Looks like a casement window (which is the smart choice for those who don't like the excessive air infiltration of sliders or double-hungs). With my one-story brick with massive...

I wouldn't let someone do my pan who has no experience with the products being used. You could hire someone else who is experienced to do that portion or complete it yourself. That's the one step you...

I don't think there are many makers. Are you envisioning a frameless shower enclosure?

I'd think that Kerdiboard is like spray foam insulation, similar material, thus somewhat combustible (like all foams). And like all combustible materials, they have to be covered with a final...

When we bought our house, I found a 30 amp single-pole breaker in my box that was connected to 12 gauge wire. Someone probably decided that the nuisance trips of an overloaded circuit could be solved...

Another vote for Spectralock from a DIY perspective. Slightly different but not harder to install than cement grouts. But awesome color consistency and longevity are guaranteed.

Best solution in my view is to order the profiles in stainless steel.
Corrosion resistance and no anodized finish to wear off. What's not to like (aside from the price)?

They offer most profiles...
