comment How do I replace a 3-way switch on 2-wire cable with a programmable timer switch?
At best, replacing a 3 way switch with a 2 way switch that requires a neutral will result in a setup that doesn't work correctly. At worst, you'll create a short circuit that could damage devices on that circuit, electrocute yourself, or start a fire. So as tester101 says, if you don't have the knowledge to understand this mistake, you shouldn't be working on wiring in your home. Get professional help.

comment What is best caulk for a 3/8“ wide X 1” deep gap between a shower floor and wall?
Rather than caulk, I'd browse the tile section for some kind of piece you can use as trim at the base of the wall to cover over the gap. Typically you'd install the tile floor first, and the walls would overlap the floor with at most a 1/4" gap.

-1 This post doesn't add anything not covered in other answers. It would be more appropriate to vote up those answers than posting a duplicate answer.

comment Two lights & two switches, one light doesn't work?
Where's the line, is there a load, a diagram with hot/neutral/switched/ground identified at each junction would help, are the switches two independent switches or three way switches. There's currently not enough detail to provide an answer to this.

comment Strange smell in August only
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because locating the source of a smell via the internet is not practical.
