comment No water pressure after new installation
This reminds me of a bunch of work I did. The plumbing in the bathroom was not used for a few months. Once everything was finished and I hooked up the faucets, they worked briefly and just slowly lost pressure until they stopped. I took off the aerator and they were clogged with just sediments from the lines not being used.

comment What could I be getting stuck on when drilling into a stud?
Agree with paperstreet. Wire guard or maybe a pipe guard. Good rule is that if your drill bits stops in a wall and you don't know why, you should pick a different spot to drill.

comment Should my first power saw be a circular or jig saw?
I would buy whichever you need first. They are different tools for different jobs. There isn't a saw that can do it all. Don't discount hand saws either.

comment How can I ensure portable generator success during a long natural disaster?
Good answer. I would add to have all your extension cords and adapters in a box with the generator so you don't have to go searching. It also helps to have some cord savers made. I use a 2x4 cut to my window length with cut outs for the cords going into the house.

Good answer and that was the route I was going to go before I decided to put the house on the market. Now I just wanted the quickest, cheapest, easiest option.

@mike Exactly which is why I decided not to completely refinish them.
