comment Is there a non-popcorn non mess ceiling cover?
@MikeFlanagan - I might go this way but I am not sure this isn't an equal amount of mess. Plus doing this I have to deal with all of the ceiling fixtures - and I have a lot.

comment Can wood floors be refinished half a room at a time?
This is a really weird way to think. It is extremely cheaper to do all at once. If you think well I only have money for half a room... well that might point to why you have money problems - no offense just trying to help.

comment Opening in dropped ceiling causes room to get warm
@Rob - I write answers for the best thing to do because someone else might have the same issue. If your question only applies to you because you want to half ass it then this is the wrong place to write it. Anyone in your situation is costing themselves a lot of money by not having the ceiling insulates. How do you close it up? Piece of cardbard and velcro if you want cheap. What you put there doesn't matter as long as it covers the space.

comment Laminate flooring in multi-width bathroom
@ChrisCudmore - some laminate is pure rubber now. I put it rubber planking (sold as laminate) down in literally half my bathroom installs now (some look like tile some have more of a planking look).

comment How can I install T molding on concrete subflooring?
@MichaelGraff - Not sure what your comment means. I fully understand the floor needs to be able to expand. Not sure why gluing down t-mold means floor can't expand...

comment Why are two columns holding up this support beam?
A 10-12 Ibeam can definitely carry a load over 15'. I was just concerned you were at 20'+ where there could be flex issues.

How far away is the next metal post? This should resolve the great mystery.

comment Why are two columns holding up this support beam?
OK come on. 2x4s? I haven't met an inspector that did not require the use of 4x4s to carry basement loads. On an I-beam these little twigs would just bow upon deflection. I am guessing it is a 10 or 12" I-beam So it can span 15-30'+ depending on ft/weight. let's just ask him how far the next post is?

@JeffMeden - But the inspector was OK that they weren't strapped to the I-beam and the use of 2x4s? Hmmm
