comment Do I need a replacement attic vapour barrier after asbestos removal?
So just to double check, if I did run the vapour barrier over the trusses, would that affect the wooden trusses?

We live in Vancouver, BC and the house was built in 1974 if that helps

comment How do I fill a gap between wall tile and acrylic shower base
@MarcS I would consider cutting your 3 x 6 tiles into 0.5" x 6" tiles (with space for the grout line between the existing tile). Then install them in the space in between and caulk in between the new tiles and the shower base

comment What type of enclosure should I use to mount a small network switch in a crawl space?
I have seen this done in some old buildings, along with Ethernet switches put in attics. Leave alone the mourning and environment issues, the maintenance on those switches because a nightmare as access to those spots is not usually very conducive. Try to find a better spot to terminate your wiring and to locate your network switches.

comment When would one use an impact driver versus a regular drill?
+1 For the decreased head stripping. I recently had to do some maintenance on a server rack at home and the impact driver was huge help. And that was using 10/32 machine screws
