comment How to clean a 100 year old piano
" I don't want to harm it but I want it clean." - It is possible (probably unlikely, but possible) that certain techniques used to clean wood furniture may cause unwanted damage to a piano such as discoloration of the keys or affect the internal parts.

comment Can I use just molding to hold down a floating floor or must I use quarter-round?
Following up. I used prefinished 9/16" molding. Worked very well and it looks A LOT better than the quarter-round floors in the rest of the house.

comment How to fix drainage from gutters?
c) prior to addressing any big fixes, get some corrugated pipe as suggested in the answer below. You can hook this up NOW and keep the water running away from the house. This fix buys you some time to address a long term or more aesthetically pleasing repair

comment Is there a simple way to retrofit an existing toilet with a top-mounted sink?
"prison toilet" could also turn up a few hits. Some are grey-water based. Their main feature is compact size and a single sink/toilet unit.

"Is there a simple way to retrofit an existing toilet with a top-mounted sink?" - Is a DIY question. If you cannot buy a product to meet your needs, you make it. Thats DIY. I've posted an edit to shift the question to fit in these guidelines.
