I want to build a new closet in the corner of my bedroom, but there is an existing baseboard heater located on the wall that would become the inside of the closet. Is it okay to enclose a baseboard heater in a closet?
Even on a mildly windy day, the new metal chimney surround makes a banging sound. The wind pushes the side in-and-out, which causes a sound like a drum. Is there any type of brace, support or liner that the contractor can install to prevent the sides from being indented and springing back into place? Thanks for the help.
I like the ease of using latex paint because it cleans up without a lot of to-do. But I recently read that latex can take as much as three weeks to cure properly. In our house, there's too much traffic to wait around. Can I use oil paint for my kitchen cabinets, or is that only for experts? Is there a wide difference in cost?
I live in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area, where the winters are very cold. My house is an older home with double-hung single pane windows. Will window replacement with double or triple pane windows save me money on my heating bill, and how much? How long will it take to recover my investment?
I want to replace my existing kitchen cabinets with new ones. I plan to basically use the same cabinet layout. How do I go about removing the old cabinets and making sure that the new ones will fit in the same space? Where is the best place to find pre-fabricated cabinets that will fit?
