I am a software programmer using C#, C+, and (less often) PHP. I frequently work with SQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and XML.

I own a business for technical consulting, programming, general IT work, and designing custom electronics (usually for costumes and theater/movie prop use).

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

A note on capitalization, spelling, and grammar: I care about the quality and readability of the questions and answers on StackExchange sites. I frequently edit for these reasons. I understand that not everyone knows English as their first language. If I leave a comment for you asking you to observe some language-usage convention, it's meant as a helpful hint, not as an attack.

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.
