I distinctly do not recall buying a "fixer-upper"... but I seem to have one anyway.

comment How can I remove tiny dust particles from the air?
An observation on the linked video, it's a lot easier to put the filter on the intake side of the fan than the output. Air pressure holds it in place better than tape, especially if you crank it fan speed up to medium.

I did this method in an apartment I used to live next to the highway in the summer to deal with the soot and road grime.

@skaperen: CFLs and LEDs?! They specifically say NOT to use them in high heat environment!

comment How do I seal a large gap between slabs to avoid freeze/thaw heaving?
Yeah the estimates (see updated Q if you haven't lately) started with retaining walls, it's their engineers that are saying the slab is moving due to freeze/thaw. The retaining walls "won't stop it continuing to migrate away from the house."
