comment Alternative systems to framing and drywall for basement?
They are expensive and have use cases. However after installed it doesn't have the finished style. Also electrical and HVAC are awkward. Maybe I have a bias but I don't like them. They work don't get me wrong. But I wouldn't want it in a house I was about to buy and I would think they had major water issues.

comment Heating detached garage
I agree with this answer. Also most gas companies will lay the pipe for a new dwelling if you do all the prep and dig. I am not sure how it is in NY but basically gas co. takes care of outside, homeowner pays for inside.

comment How can I replace a light fixture with a two way switch?
Your current configuration will definitely keep the light powered at all times. So you have the light. Tell us exactly what wires (black/white/red?) are coming in from each direction and where they are going or came from. How many switches do you have?

comment An asbestos panel was removed without realising, how much danger are we in?
I would like to see if anyone has contracted anything from asbestos tiles in their home. Not saying this isn't something to be careful with but as soon as we care we go overboard. But good answer.

comment How can I replace a light fixture with a two way switch?
You did not wire it correctly. Let us know what wires you have available. It sounds like that you wired all of the blacks together though which will keep your light on all the time.

comment How much old material do I remove before laying new rolled vinyl?
Is your new vinyl thicker than the old stuff? Is the old stuff too hard to scrape off?

@JasonHutchinson - Also you have to keep asbestos in mind. When thinking about removing both layers, you may be going into asbestos tiles. Which turns a $200 job into a $2000 job.

We would normally fill any imperfections with a self-leveler.

@JasonHutchinson - that is pretty normal. Old vinyl installers used to just throw a layer of 3/8" plywood on top of whatever was there.
