• How much should a simple renovation be?

    The house is 1200 square feet, and everything needs to be replaced. The price will be reduced because my dad is someone who does houses for a living and will do it for me. But how much should all the materials and tools cost. Its 2 bath and 2 bd rooms

  • 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?

  • How do I turn the light off from the bottom of the stairs when the switch is at the top of the stairs?

    I would like to get my Dad something other than a Clapper to for his new house. Are there any good products with easy installation to turn the stairwell light off from the basement?

    I'm looking for suggestions on a new bedroom theme (like color combos,art etc) I want the space to feel calming and relaxing. I like purple's,blue's, medium to dark green's, grey's,silver. I want try to stay away from too much black or brown because it will make the space look small. And am avoiding white for obvious reasons as it's hard to keep perfectly clean. Though I'm not opposites to creams or similar shades if paired with another color. Thanks for any help!!

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

    We have just bought our first house and want to decorate before moving in. The previous owners painted gloss and/or vinyl silk type paint over everything; walls, ceilings, woodwork, throughout the whole house. The paint desperately needs sanding back but this will take forever with just paper and sanding blocks.... show more

The previous owners painted gloss and/or vinyl silk type paint over everything; walls, ceilings, woodwork, throughout the whole house. The paint desperately needs sanding back but this will take forever with just paper and sanding blocks. I saw something called a drywall sander online, would this work? Or is there something else out there which would make light of this massive job?

  • How to be an architect and interior designer?

    Best answer: Most architects design their own interiors. (They also do landscape design.) 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... show more
    Best answer: Most architects design their own interiors. (They also do landscape design.) 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.

  • Any painting tips?

    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.

    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?

    Or do furnaces have to be in a large open room? It is on my main level and looks so ugly. The manual says it has to have 1" in the front, back, and sides. So I am assuming that it can be installed in a closet, so would it be safe to build a closet around it? I don't want those ugly accordian doors... show more

  • Cleaning dried mud compound sanded "powder"?

    Best answer: They are expected to lay "Tarps" down to minimize such clean ups. What they do should be in the Contract for the Job. I used a "Swifter" type wet mop.

  • Best adhesive for stick and peel tiles?

    I found a good deal on good stick and peel tiles that I bought that had really good reviews but the back isn't very stick and the adhesive doesn't go all the way to the edges.
