• Do you leave your bathroom window slightly open when you shower?

    My parents complain that I shouldn't be completely closing the window when I shower not even for few minutes cos it can cause the tiles of the bathroom to start coming off when it gets heated and no air to sustain it and it's expensive to fix tiles.

    My parents complain that I shouldn't be completely closing the window when I shower not even for few minutes cos it can cause the tiles of the bathroom to start coming off when it gets heated and no air to sustain it and it's expensive to fix tiles. They're complaining to the point that they're telling me if I can't comply to the rules I should get my own place. What do I do, as I haven't saved up enough and they don't want my money to contribute to bills or small damages. I'm 25 years old, I want to get my own place but I haven't saved up enough.

  • Can I build a 8 foot privacy fence?

    Is it legal? I have a creepy neighbor across the street who is obviously watching me because he/she turns on the bright flood lights whenever I go outside or sees me in the kitchen. Their house is on higher ground so the current 6' fence isn't enough. 8' would block their view of my house. The fence is... show more

Their house is on higher ground so the current 6' fence isn't enough. 8' would block their view of my house. The fence is between my house and land which also belongs to me. Since I'm my own neighbor is this fence do-able legally?

  • Where's the Middle pole?

    Has the government been hiding the Middle Pole from us? Are they also hiding other poles like the north-south pole, the east pole, the west pole, the center pole, and the exopole?

  • How to fix my toilet?

    So our landlord literally said we have to fix the toilet ourselves and not to call a plumber, he won't call a plumber either. We've ran a 50 ft snake with nothing coming out, and have killed ourselves plunging but our toilet won't flush. You flush and it fills and the water level slowly goes down but... show more
    So our landlord literally said we have to fix the toilet ourselves and not to call a plumber, he won't call a plumber either. We've ran a 50 ft snake with nothing coming out, and have killed ourselves plunging but our toilet won't flush. You flush and it fills and the water level slowly goes down but doesn't fully drain or flush. We've replaced everything in the tank with no luck. What else could it be? There is no basement.

  • I live in a condo and work overnight.Do I have the right to ask my neighbors to keep the noise down certain hours and days of the week?

    Best answer: yes, but keep it reasonable. If they are being super obnoxious and causing a huge disturbance then yeah ask them politely to be quiet, but keep in mind they live there too, and probably don't want to have to be tip toeing around all the time, so be reasonable.

  • How do I seal wormwood?

    I have a table with some beetle damage or wormwood holes. I don’t want to get rid of the way they look, but I also don’t want a hole in the table where food and such can get stuck. Is there a clear filler or something I can cover them with that will hold a stain?

  • Can I do this to walk up in an attic?

    Best answer: If the insulation is on the floor, the attic isn't insulated - the living space below it is. Compressing the fiberglass insulation a little won't hurt the drywall ceiling underneath it. But it will reduce the effectiveness of the insulation. I hope those floor joists are bigger than 2x4: 2x10 would be... show more
    Best answer: If the insulation is on the floor, the attic isn't insulated - the living space below it is.

    Compressing the fiberglass insulation a little won't hurt the drywall ceiling underneath it. But it will reduce the effectiveness of the insulation.

    I hope those floor joists are bigger than 2x4: 2x10 would be more typical.

    Having said all that: Yes, it's OK to floor part of your attic that way to make it more usable for storage.

  • Can a handyman patch a hole that was in a stud?

    Best answer: ya. what you do is add a "sister" [twin] to the stud ... with plenty of construction adhesive and screws or clamps to hold it together while the glue sets up overnight. does sort of require removing some of the wallboard

    plastic wood would look ok, but isn't near strong enough to bear much load

  • I don't know I feel about my girlfriend. Reuse/saving?

    Best answer: She is adjusting to the new world. Like the day when she does not have a job. She can still function. You are stuck in the world where you got to buy everything in order to do anything.

    I received a dryer that has been sitting for two years. I changed the power cord from a three prong to a four prong. I turned it on and it worked great. But it smells like it s burning. The lint trap is clean but not sure if the inside is clear of lint. I do not see any Sparks or smoke coming from the back of the power cord. I looked at all YouTube videos on the power cord installation and they all said the same thing on the installation. What else could it be? I let it run for a minute but when the smell came I turned it off. Should I let it run more???
