comment Front door frame increasingly out of square
@Comintern: The wall is fairly level. The corner where the door is "buried" seems to be due to the wall not being flat. The adjacent walls are parallel to each other, but both lean about 1/2" over 4'.

@BrownRedHawk You should make that an answer, because so far it's the first thing I'd try.

@BrownRedHawk: No, but I'm not looking to make a staircase, just a means to access the hill without sliding down it. I want footholds. Pavers have worked fine for that kind of thing on normal topsoil and shallower hills, but this hill is so steep and so soft it will require something different.

@JasonHutchinson One reason to add steps is to have access to maintain plants.

comment What is the cloth around my dishwasher and do I need it?
And also (I would assume) to retain the heat of the wash water during the cycle.

comment How do I change a light bulb I can't grip?
The classic solution to getting a bulb with broken glass out is to cut a potato in half and jam the potato against the jagged remains.

comment How to seal p-trap leaking at inlet
Are you sure it's leaking there? A slow leak where the plastic elbow meets the disposal would run down the elbow and could give the appearance of leaking at the trap.

It's important to use the (flat) rubber washer that goes behind the beveled slip washer. This provides even pressure on the beveled washer when there's a slight misalignment of the fitting.
