comment How much does the quality of laminated flooring depend on its thickness?
How does thickness increase durability and dent resistance? Making something thicker doesn't make it harder. The top wear layer and core material differences would be the deciding factors. Thickness may affect sound somewhat, but underlayment also plays a huge role in reducing a "hollow" sound of the floor.

comment Why won't the blades of my newly installed ceiling fan turn?
We really can't help unless you respond with more details, specifically to Tester101's question. A humming sound would seem to indicate that the motor is trying to spin the blades, but there's a physical blockage or clearance issue that's preventing it.

comment How do I build a Gambrel roof?
I answered a similar question here with information that may help. However, for your size of building, you'll definitely need some internal cross beams, rather than just plywood gussets as I suggested for a simple shed.

comment How do I build a Gambrel roof?
This analysis doesn't take into account any internal members typically present in a Gambrel Truss. A 32' wide roof will likely need internal supports. I'd recommend using the section method for analysis, rather than the joint method. See my answer to this question.
