comment Is the ability to save pictures worth it in an inspection camera?
Yeah, a few do, but it's generally a composite output. To capture, you need something like a laptop + USB tuner card and a bunch of cables connecting everything, which seems pretty awkward. I am thinking it would actually be simpler (and probably about the same quality) to just use a regular camera and take a picture of the screen. :)

comment Is this fluorescent light fixture a major electrical problem / fire hazard?
A lot of times you'll find a complete fixture for the same price or even cheaper than just the ballast (one of those quirks of supply and demand), just to add to @lqlarry's point that it's often easier/faster to replace the whole fixture.

comment How do I lubricate plastic rollers for sliding closet doors?
It's been well over a year, no problems at all. A few days ago actually I gave them a quick spray but only because I had a squeak in a door (not these ones) and so went around and lubricated all the hinges and such.

comment Where can I find unusual L-shaped brackets?
I have to say I have no clue what you are trying to do from reading your question. What type of windows (casement, double-hung, sliding, etc)? Pretty much all windows have an interior and an exterior side, and whether the screen is on the inside or outside depends on the style of window -- are you saying the window is installed backwards (eg, the exterior side is facing inside)? A picture would go a long way here.

comment What can I do to prevent injuries from the corners of a wooden deck?
Is it feasible to round or cut off the corners again? A picture (preferably with measurements as well) will help someone answer, as it's not clear how much room you have to work with.

comment Is there any way I can reclaim this space and still safely support the front steps?
In addition to the overview pic, a floor plan/diagram that shows the joists, support structures (at least that you know about) and dimensions would be useful.

comment How can I move a non load bearing wood frame wall?
You don't need PT wood. Put a foam sill gasket underneath or wrap the bottom plate in 6-mil plastic. Untreated wood will rot from the water whereas PT won't but I've gotta think that preventing moisture from touching the wood at all is even better.

comment What are my options for multi-room audio?
There are many ways to do this, including several commercial systems that have many of the features you're asking for. Do you have a budget in mind? Sonos is actually fairly cheap per-room compared to some of the systems out there..
