  • Room temp issue?

    Best answer: Get nice warm comforters and open the window just a BIT.

    OR
    Get a floor fan and run it during the night. In fact if you set if in front of the window, blowing into the room, any coolness of the glass will be sucked up and blown into the room .. cooling it only slightly, but that is better than nothing.

  • Finishing my parent's basement, what are some good ideas?

    Best answer: A good sound system is always a good thing. If the shape and size of the room allows, I found a small pool table or dart board or anything that encourages people to interact is a good thing. No TVs or other passive entertainment. It just makes people stare at the wall. A good compact refrigerator for drinkies and... show more
    Best answer: A good sound system is always a good thing. If the shape and size of the room allows, I found a small pool table or dart board or anything that encourages people to interact is a good thing. No TVs or other passive entertainment. It just makes people stare at the wall. A good compact refrigerator for drinkies and flexible seating. A lot depends on how many people are foreseen to use it. It's tough to make anything for kids - they get old and change so quickly.

  • Why do liberals on here claim that they have money and/or jobs without any kind of proof, proving they are lying because liberals don't have?

    Best answer: What do you feel constitutes proof? I'm hardly going to post a pic of my paycheck stub. And even if I did, you would pull the usual conservative crap and say it wasn't really mine or something. Slightly more than half the county identifies as being liberal. Just to make it easy for you, that's about... show more
    Best answer: What do you feel constitutes proof? I'm hardly going to post a pic of my paycheck stub. And even if I did, you would pull the usual conservative crap and say it wasn't really mine or something. Slightly more than half the county identifies as being liberal. Just to make it easy for you, that's about 50%. We have 4% unemployment. If your contention were true we would have much greater unemployment.

    Oh, and I've been working since I was 14, paid my own way through college, and have worked continuously for 43 years, with only a 6 week break when I had surgery. I make 6 figures, my only debt is car payments and a mortgage which is almost paid off. I also put two kids through college. Sorry if that doesn't align with your false narrative, so feel free to call me a liar. I know the truth. You don't.

    Happy holidays! Did I trigger you?

  • Is there such thing as an industrial sander for decorating?

    Best answer: Drywall sanders are specifically made to sand chalky substances that turn into a powder and fall to the floor or get sucked up. Paint will clog them up and make them useless.

    Best answer: Drywall sanders are specifically made to sand chalky substances that turn into a powder and fall to the floor or get sucked up. Paint will clog them up and make them useless. I'm afraid there is no quick fix for your house. Removing the trim, numbering them, stripping them down with chemicals or by hand, or replacing them may be your best option. This can be done over time as you live there. If the walls need to be done prior to moving in, You can sand down any bumps and skim coat the walls using a wide taping knife. I do three coats, first one vertical, second horizontal and third one vertical again. Then a light sanding with the drywall sanding pole and your ready for primer and paint. Look on youtube to learn about any of this.

Some courses will include training in interior design, others won't if they are more technically-orientated. Some architectural practices will employ interior specialists, but they are less versatile if all they can do is ID.

    You do not need any additional qualifications to practice as an Interior Designer, but if you only train as one you can't practice or be licensed as an architect. So to answer your last point, you would be more than qualified. You also need the right experience portfolio but obviously that will come later.

    I'm 16 and I asked my dad to help me paint my walls but he never came through (it's been months), so I've decided I've got to do it myself. He did, however, patch a few holes in my wall so now there's just tons of markings on my wall and frankly it looks worse than it did before. I know I have to first sand off the patches but other than that I have no idea. But I know there are people who have much expertise and could maybe recommend types of paint, techniques, or just other things I wouldn't be aware of otherwise. As aforementioned I'm only 16 so I don't have much money to work with but I can always make more but I'd still like to not buy something expensive that I'd only have to use once (i.e. paint brush/ roller, paint). I feel dumb asking but nonetheless I'd appreciate any help. :)

  • I got a new furnace installed that has the pipes going outside the side wall, rather than the roof. Can I build a closet around it?

    Best answer: Aside from any local safety codes, there are 3 considerations. You've already mentioned leaving space for servicing and repairs. The 1" spacing is apparently for fire safety, but you have to make sure that combustable walls won't get too hot. Finally, you have to consider where the combustion air is... show more

The 1" spacing is apparently for fire safety, but you have to make sure that combustable walls won't get too hot. Finally, you have to consider where the combustion air is coming from. If one of the outside pipes is providing air for combustion, you're okay. If not, you'll need vented doors.
