comment Tile cracks on a convex edge
The cabinet is next to the edge of the tile? The picture doesn't show it like that.

comment Tile cracks on a convex edge
It seems that things are falling off the counter and breaking tile. This isn't a cap piece of tile so the "corners" are pretty weak. Very weird setup. I suggest you move vanity over if you can.

I always put my baseboards over carpet. Isn't that the norm?

comment What is best way to caulk this improperly installed bathtub?
@keshlam - I didn't mention the quarter round specifically because I am thinking the gap is a little over half inch and it might not work - but that is what I would use for 90% of my big gaps on tubs. I for one would something substantial if there was a gap that big.

comment Covering an above ground pool indefinitely
The people who are renting the house are OK with this? I wouldn't rent a house with this type of situation. If house has pool then get it working for renters or take out pool. There is also a liability side to something like this.

comment Gutted a basement and found a window, what should I do?
I am not sure I would cement it up. I doubt the cement you put in will be as leak proof as the window that is in there. Leave it and it is an option later on. If anything board it on the outside so an animal doesn't break in and make a nest there.

comment Countertop receptacle spacing issue
This is right. It is that simple. You cannot be more than 24 inches from an outlet (given you are standing next to wall). Meaning if you have outlets 48 inches away then you are 24 inches from two. In your specific case I would install them about 6 inches off the windows on each side.

comment How can I match existing mortar?
Good question. All I can say is I know exactly what you are talking about without seeing a picture - have seen it at least 5-6 times. And also thankful I have never had to duplicate it. But if I talk to my brick guy in the next few days will try to ask him.
