Adding a Sink in the Basement

I would like to add a kitchen to the basement. The basement is finished and has an existing bathroom. The water from the basement bathroom is pumped to the septic tank by a sump pump. How hard would it be to put in a sink for the kitchen? What level of effort are we looking at? Should we call a contractor in?

Landscaping for Utility and Energy Savings

Most windows of our new home face east and west. Summer a/c expenses are high. We'll add landscaping with fast growing shade trees and shrubs in front of the windows. What species are likely to reduce our summer utility bills?

New House, Poor Water Pressure

We just tore down our old house and built a new one on the same lot. Water pressure was good in the old house. In the new house - not so good. The builder has decided to take out all of the flow restrictors on the shower heads as a solution. It seems to me this is just a quick fix but will waste water and energy. What do you think?

Enclosing a Patio

I already have a concrete patio that is attached to my home, no concrete work needed, but also no roof. I am wondering approximate cost of covering and screening in this area. Shed type roof (slant) not hip and gable, if I hire someone to do this. I prefer wood, not aluminum as I live in Alabama and we get alot of storms/wind. It is 14 feet x 23 feet, and will be attached to my home. Thank you!
