We shopped solid surface countertops for our Sacramento kitchen remodeling project and it doesn't seem like a do-it-yourself job. The clerk at the home remodeling store said you can crack open a counter with a stress riser. Can you buy countertops with warranties against stress risers?
This spring and summer I'm finally converting the attic and putting in new kitchen cabinets. The big project is the dormer. From what I've gathered online, the framing and rafters are covered the same way you'd do your roof, with plywood, felt, shingles, and flashing. How do you dry-in the room, insulate it, and still maintain adequate ventilation?
