comment Cracked bathroom tile - runs almost entire length of the wall
I'm more concerned that it might be an issue with your house. Cracks along entire walls mean that things which should not be moving, are. That can be VERY bad, depending what the root cause is.

Can probably save that and more by adding the missing insulation on the lowest line, mid left of picture. I'd assume hosing should be fine for this part that sits out in the weather, and might be more effective at removing the pollen inside the grid, though best to contact the maker if it's not mentioned in the manual.

If you are in such bad neighbor relations with your immediate neighbors that you can't get an easement for what looks to be 10 feet for underground at the very back corners of the properties, I'd seriously suggest moving.

comment DIY Floating Desk in New Build Home
A hardwood veneer solid coor door is a very common (and if a decent door, quite good looking) desk slab for setting on file cabinets, handily pre-manufactured. If you want to look of the other, go for it. Looks like a pretty light load, then. I would suggest a sheet of 1/8" (3mm?) hardboard on the bottom surface, though.

Please don't just ask the same question worded slightly differently a few days later. Have you talked to your power utility yet as suggested???

comment DIY Floating Desk in New Build Home
Linked article seems like a complicated approach to a problem that's easily and commonly solved by heading down to the building materials recycle (habitat for humanity is one common organization, or there may be other more local ones) and grabbing a solid core door to toss over two file cabinets. It would be a (often surprising to most people) LOT stronger with a sheet of 1/8" material (masonite, plywood, etc) on the bottom of it, too. To get any sense of "if the desk would bow in any way" we'd need to know what you are putting on it - a 2 Kg laptop, a 30 Kg printer, a 150 kg linebacker?
