    Needs advice for installing drop in tub.

    So I have this tub I’m about to build the frame for. But I’m curious as to the bottom setup. It has a osb sheet base secured to the bottom with the osb having these real flimsy legs also made of osb.

    My baseboards produce 75,000 BTU using 1660 per foot. Three contractors all want to use Viessmann. What negotiating points can I ask for? I'm keeping my two thermostats. How many annual free maintenance calls are reasonable? Isn't $6900 quite high using existing plumbing and gas lines? What...

    Connecting Faucets with Supply Tubes

    Connecting Faucets with Supply Tubes Prevent leaks and save money with new supply tubes for your sink. I never reuse old supply lines. Many come with a ten year warranty, so my feeling is that if they ever get removed, they should be replaced. Some new faucets come with supply tubes. Most of...
