It may be the distributor. I'm pretty sure different stores will sometimes sell the same product with unique product numbers to avoid price matching their competitors.

comment How can I make a room look bigger using tile?
I think this may be bordering on off-topic decorating advice. You can find quite a few articles on this topic with a quick Google search though.

comment How can I secure a shed with a skid foundation in a windy location?
Your answer got me on the right track. I found these earth anchors specifically designed for sheds that I think I'm going to end up using.

comment How can I repair a towel bar with one end ripped out of the wall?
@Bryce: It's a towel bar, not a handrail specifically designed to arrest falls. For the intended purpose, the "DIY fix" I suggested should be every bit as strong, if not stronger than the original hardware, which has already failed.

The 13% is fairly close to my answer - comes out to 9,165 sq. ft. Good to know there's another option cheaper than $3000/seat.

comment I have paint over unsanded drywall compound. What is the best way to fix it?
What exactly did the painter agree to do before he started the work? Because professional painters are not the same as professional drywall installers. Did you specifically tell him you wanted the walls sanded smooth prior to painting, or did he just agree to make sure there wasn't any remaining drywall dust? If the issue was not a communications breakdown, then the painter should definitely fix his mistakes free of charge. However, if you just told him you wanted him to prep and paint the wall, it's not so clear - he SHOULD have clarified, but it's not completely on him. Please add details.
