comment Can homeowners install sink grease traps to prevent build up in septic/sewer lines?
do you put a lot of grease down your drains? I've never heard of a tank needing to be pumped so often.

comment streamlined snow shoveling
I call that a scoop and can report that it moves a lot of snow. Also since you cannot lift it, it is actually easier on your back than a smaller shovel that you might use to throw snow

comment Dealing with non square wall and non-planable vanity cabinet
my gap is 3/4" or more. Very noticeable. Hence the plan to put tiles on the wall. The "diamond grinding wheel and nerves of steel" is why I described the top as non-planable.

comment Dealing with non square wall and non-planable vanity cabinet
it doesn't attach, it just sits on it. It can't move when the vanity is in place because the sink is attached to the top and to all the plumbing.

comment How deep do the footings have to be for a gazebo?
if you need a building permit for this work, a two-minute phone call to your building inspector will get you the answer you need. They know your frost depth and in my case also knew what my soil was like, specifically at my house.

what is your concern over it not closing completely? Are you trying to keep sound or light out of the room, or keep your heat in, or does it just irk you to see that gap?
