comment How do I properly label/wire a switched subwoofer outlet?
This is exactly what I hoped was available / legal. I won't need a switch, the amplifier feeding the outlet will switch power to it.

comment Should I use water-resistant lumber for siding?
Thanks! We had to go with PVC, the big-box home improvement stores here only carry composites in the form of deck boards, and only by special order.

comment Electrical - How to power 12V LEDs from a 12V AC power supply
If you don't want the flicker, use two LEDs in parallel, with opposing polarity. Use two other non-light-emitting diodes with a higher breakdown voltage, one in series with each LED, to protect the LEDs. Or instead of all of that, just get an actual rectifier -- Catalog #: 276-1146 will set you back $2 Radio Shack.

comment Is it safe to flush expired food down the toilet?
FWIW, uneaten food is very different from poop. Poop is mostly water and dead bacteria, plus a little fiber and some other minor undigested bits. Decently healthy food is mostly complex carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, all of which are much less soluble, so they are much more likely to stick, clump, and clog in your system when they reach corners and build-up along the pipes.

comment Rip old door in half?
One other thing to consider: insulation. Generally, insulated doors are used, so you may need to come up with a creative way to insulate the old-school door. Maybe rigid foam glued to the back of the door, plus weatherstripping around the edges. Won't be aesthetically pleasing, but you'll only see it when you open the door (or, if you open inward, only from the attic side).
