Re: Stove Vent Installation

It will involve cutting a big hole through an upper cabinet and through the ceiling.

Re: Helping a packrat

It is my issue, not his...

I totally sympathize. I visit my elderly father once per week, to pay bills, take out the garbage, refill pill boxes, fold laundry, do errands, etc. His house is a wreck; he never throws anything out, and he [more]

Re: Try to take the high road

Many employers will do a social media search and if they saw these posts might get the wrong idea about what caliber of worker they might be.

Re: Is this True?

Did you check with your car insurance company?

My deductible is pretty high, so my impulse is just to pay for things that are under that. But it turns out the deductible doesn't apply to chips in windshields; insurance covers that [more]

Re: Kitchen Base Cabinets

I realize the fridge is in the way, we'll be moving it.

Where to? Its current location looks convenient, and if it's hooked up to plumbing, it could be expensive to move. Or did you mean you'll move it out of the way temporarily just [more]

Re: Cancelled checks?

The point I was making to the OP is that if their bank is telling them that they do not have a copy/picture of the check because it was deposited electronically they either 1. are incorrect (see someone higher up the food chain) or 2. their [more]

Cancelled checks?

I wasn't too worried when banks stopped sending me my cancelled checks, because I figured if I needed a copy I could get it. In fact, when viewing my checking account online, typically if I click on the check number, a pdf of the front & back is [more]

Re: Possible Abuse of Authority by Inspector

If in fact your set-up is non-compliant, then the problem isn't that the inspector is requiring you to fix it (as he should), the problem is that he's letting others slide. Which you can't do anything about, because you only "know" it [more]
