The previous owners made a stupid box looking fireplace. I want to upgrade! Please see the pics and let me know if this is work you can do. I'm getting quotes together and would like it done ASAP if possible. I live in McDonough, Ga.
I have a 2002-built brick home near Atlanta, Georgia. Just a few days ago I noticed a very strong smell (smelled sort of like a dead mouse or something) in my basement and upon further
investigation it was coming from a small closet that has a big pipe running from the upper floor to the ground. I have never noticed this smell before. I think it had rained the day that happened.
Again, today, the smell came back but it smells more like sewage. We do have a septic tank, and we had issues with it leaking into our lawn a few years ago and we got the entire tank replaced I believe.
Any tips? Is this smell dangerous (eg methane buildup) or is it harmless and disgusting?
Has anyone ever used this company before, or know of anyone who has used it? Does it work, and hold up well? Anyone in the Katy/Houston area in particular? Any and all comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I purchased a home with an unfinished basement. It has framing/installation/some electrical and roughed in plumbing. So I spoke with an Licensed electrician about wiring it out to code
and him pulling a permit. He advised me if he pulled the permit it would have to be for the full job not just electric so it would be better if I pulled an home owners inspection permit because I'm doing the basement in stages. I called and requested this and I was told it was 71.50 a sq ft and 4.50 per something else. Well I have 1200 Sqt so just adding that together that tells me that can't be right as that is about 85,000 bucks. I question why it would be so much to to finish my basement and was told thats the system and they hung up on me. I called back and got someone else and rephased the question still to get told they needed to know the full amount I was going to spend to finish the basement.
Hi friends! I need to know if I can tear this wall down? I want to renovate my kitchen to give it more space and take that wall out of the way and have an open floor plan, but that wall, Im just not so sure about it.
I purchased a large 12'X16' utility shed to fix the inside up as an office. The interior is very cute and welcoming, but the outside is an eyesore in my backyard. We've thought of
building a porch on it and painting the front door a pretty color, but? The porch idea would be the width of the building 12' and 4' out. I thought of columns but that is as far as I have gotten. Help please from you wonderful creative people. I will try and get a picture in a day or two.
Hi! I'm am in the process of refinishing Birch veneered kitchen cabinets. They were installed, brand new around 1972. The cabinets were shellacked over the existing hardware and have been
a nightmare to clean and sand. I tried using Tung Oil to finish them, because my husband and I love the grain of the wood. But, it made them a not so pleasing, gold color (which was the color they were when I started) . Has anyone stained these types of cabinet doors with a darker stain, without them looking yellowy/gold? Thanks for any help!
Question, where does a person seek monies to restructure and build a bathroom for an autistic man (35yrs old) that needs industrial strength walls and flooring? He has ruined four
bathrooms in 14 yrs. in desperate need again. Smell is importable and facilities are wearing down again. Didn't know where to ask. Thank you for any guidance you may have to give. He is the son of a Vietnam veteran who is (78yrs old). Funds are tight.
