I am an intermediate programmer in PHP and C#. I frequently work with standards like HTML, CSS, Javascript, Flash, and XML.

I enjoy computer games, photography, writing, sci-fi/fantasy, birding, and occasional cooking. (Many of which are topics of SE sites!)

The single thermostat is in the hallway, between the rooms with vents. I'll add this detail to the question.

Water heater is gas, and right next to furnace, so those could be enclosed together. Clothes dryer is electric. Gas range (upstairs) I wouldn't think relies on a combustion air that's so far away?

comment What to look for in a new/replacement toilet?
If the cheaper ones do a good job, but are flimsy, then I'm ok spending another 50 or 100% to get one that's sturdy also.

No, there's a return in two other bedrooms. (Basically 3 bedrooms upstairs, each with a return as well as a vent.)

I'm surprised anyone would consider doing the work of relocating light switches (electrical, drywall, paint) before employing discipline and responsible parenting. Wow.

comment What is the typical water pressure for a sprinkler system in a home?
Residential sprinkler systems are on-topic for DIY; wanting to know "typical" pressure might be too ambiguous, but rephrased slightly, this question is on-topic in my opinion.
