comment What are the possible solutions for an uphill septic system in rocky area around lake
Worth noting that my previous house was on city sewer and they had a similar setup. There was a small pot that the house emptied into with a grinder/pump unit that pushed the stuff to the pipes at the road.

comment How can I correct a crowned floor joist?
@getterdun The length of the crown is pretty long. I think I would need to do this from above to make a decent cut.

@shirlockhomes The joist is bowed for most of it's length. It tapers from peak over about 4' on either side. This joist is the next to last one from the outside wall. The joists on either side plus the next two towards the middle of the house line up.

comment How do I finish off a silicone sealant like a professional?
I've had success with taping. After I removed the tape, I made one more pass with my finger to lay the ridges down. The line stays fairly crisp because the excess was removed with the first pass.

@MichaelKaras that is the wood filler I used. It will be painted over.

@TomG It would be close. Currently kicking myself for overlooking this. At this point I'm going to just make the trim look the best I can.

I would love to move it up, but no slack in the cable.

comment How to replace wire next to another wire?
yeah, I pulled through enough extra that I could clip off my blob of mangled copper and electrical tape. :)

comment How can I safely remove an outlet from service?
@JeremyW.Sherman Yep, I just replaced the nasty almond colored outlets in my son's room with white and went with the TR receptacles in place of the plastic plugs. Good advice!

The problem is that this circuit also controls my septic pump.

comment How can I color concrete?
Thanks, I've been wondering how well the stains you apply after curing would hold up!

comment Can I reroute this air duct?
I'm no expert, but it was my impression from my reading that taps shouldn't be in the end cap to allow the system to pressurize properly.

comment How do I use an extension ladder to get onto my roof?
I've often wondered the same thing. My old house had an inside corner that would let me climb the ladder and then step sideways onto the roof. My new house doesn't have such a convenient way on the roof.

comment Is blown-in insulation appropriate for on the foundation block in a crawlspace?
Crawlspace is not conditioned. There is an access door from the outside and several vents. The floor is plywood. Some of the block is below grade which is why I'm concerned.
