• Why is my agent telling me that the value of my home comes down to the age and square footage and nothing else?

    Since buying my home, i have made many upgrades, but my agent is telling me that they basically don't matter because what will determine the value is the age (year built), and the square footage of my home. I want to seel i btw.

  • How can I soundproof a room cheaply and without damaging the walls?

    Best answer: I would start with the simple things first - sound travels through air, so seal all air paths. Hang heavy drapes at the windows using the existing curtain tracks, lined with batting if necessary. Lay thick rugs on the floor to absorb sound and see how it is going by the time you have done all that. I would mount... show more

    I would mount the tiles if you are keen on them onto a light framework that can just stand against the wall or be tailored to fit floor to ceiling, or get telescopic poles to give a more secure job. Alternatively hinge panels of mdf or whatever like a large dressing screen so that they are free standing. If you keep it all demountable you take everything with when you move.

  • Is this house structurally sound?

    Is this house structurally sound?

    We just bought this small house out in the country. It's a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom house, with living/kitchen area, and in the front there is a converted screened porch that is now a second living area.

    We just bought this small house out in the country. It's a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom house, with living/kitchen area, and in the front there is a converted screened porch that is now a second living area. I've noticed that in the converted porch area the floor is slightly slanted. We put a pool table in there and had to put drink coasters under two legs to even it out. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be angled to allow water to drop off of the flat roof, or if there is lack of support under the house. Can anyone tell me if it's normal? Also, the actual "house" is completely even, so no problem there.

  • What are the big buzzing electrical boxes outside of businesses and schools and how do they work?

    I take it they are down transformers, but I'm not entirely sure. Does anyone have a good web resource on how they work/what exactly they do? They seem to be on 24/7, are they using power themselves?

  • Can I prop 4x4s on standard clay bricks and build a wood floor for a foundation to a shed?

    Best answer: You would be better off buying concrete blocks with wood mounting that you could build your platform directly on, eliminating posts.
    Of course whatever you use there is danger of it sinking into the ground. Especially if the soil is light. But jacking up a shed is fun.

  • Where do contractors keep the majority of their tools -- Cargo pants, or belts?

    I am what most would call a beginner at DIY projects, and although I am getting better at them, I find my biggest setback being the need to go and forth to get various tools and accessories.

    I am what most would call a beginner at DIY projects, and although I am getting better at them, I find my biggest setback being the need to go and forth to get various tools and accessories. So, now that I have some money (I'm 21), I am wondering what an ideal setup is. Do you use primarily cargo pant utilities to store things, or do you use belts? Are suspenders recommended? Assume I could be working on legitimately any project you can think of. Building a tree house, installing a shelf, repairing a refrigerator (although I'd probably let my landlord take care of that last one lol). So, does anyone have any pointers? I have been wearing some Caterpillar brand cargo pants for about a month now, but have decided there are not nearly enough pockets or flexibility based on project. Come to think of it, does a system exist in which you can swap out components of belt? Say you need a drill holster one day, but you are only working with a Dremel the next? Thank you in advance for all the help! Spencer

  • Question about heating and Thermostat wiring.?

    I have to replace the thermostat and I removed the old one. The two wires were only a white one and a black one. I am really confused, is this normal? For every video I saw on youtube there were many wires shown. I only have two coming out of the wall.

  • Where can I find this screwdriver in Britain?

I couldn't remember name to find another, so I googled and it said it was called push and pull screwdriver, but only ones available were vintage ones so I'm thinking that I'm looking for the wrong name. Surely they wouldn't have stopped making something so useful? I won't have to buy a while electric tool just for something with more pushing power than a normal screwdriver will I?
