comment Not sure on assembly of shower faucet
I don't think the faucet has the o-ring anymore. I guess sealing it should work for a temporary fix until I remodel the bathroom and shower. The bolts are slotted, and I think I have some light duty thread lock. Thanks for the thoughts.

comment Eliminating ticking noise of pipe in wall
Just got done taping and mudding. This worked like a charm. 1/4" furring strips and 1/4" drywall. Perfectly silent. I hope others with the same issue find this solution.

comment How to make a straight groove easily?
Are you sure there aren't any local free community tool rental places around? We have one in Columbus, Ohio; it is fantastic for home owners.

This is the solution, but I am going to slide some material between the pipe and drywall as a test first because I am curious now.

I have never heard of this code. Is this for real? Good question

comment Gable and Roof Vents Together?
The addition of soffit vents is probably one of the biggest projects a home owner can do and get a good return on comfort and energy bills, yet people seldom discuss it. With my ridge vent in place now, I closed off the gable vents after doing calculations and getting my system up to par. A cape cod makes it even more of a challenge.

comment How can I secure my spindles?
I sense some might not understand the concept of toe-nailing. It is driving a nail down at a 45 or higher angle through the post and into the tread.

These teflon sheets might work, but I think I would have to expose the pipe on both sides to get between the pipe and wall. This is not possible without major repair, and in that case, I would just increase the size of the bay.

The issue is that I only have room to slide a piece of material the thickness of cloth between the pipe and wall.

I have the wall cut open right now. It is most definitely the stack. The copper lines are about a foot away and silent. It was surprising to me as well. The mark on the pipe moves 1/2 inch up just after 5 minutes of hot water.
