I have lived in in Georgia, France and Vermont. I have lived in and repaired tens of houses along the way. I have learned most of what I know from my mom, a true DIY-er. My experience runs from foundation work to faux painting to cabinet construction.

comment Natural/Free Composting Liner
How would you do this, crawl inside with newspaper and tape? Seems like a over worked problem? Whats wrong with letting them get dirty? Yes, I get that you don't want to have to clean it out all the time, but like Shane said, their just isn't anything else, especially anything biodegradable.

comment Reducing Attic Fire Risk
To answer your question we will either need a picture or the name of the insulation. Was it cellulose, cotton, wool, wood shavings, recycled glass or Spray foam poly urethane insulation. The latter requires that other fire retardants be used in conjunction with this insulation such as sheetrock.

comment What is the best way to seal a French drain board due to high levels of radon?
No answer yet... If you can post a pic I might be able to understand better the relationship of the plastic board to the drain and the concrete. Perhaps you can get an answer that way?
