Just a guy with an irrational love of the web & design. I am a graphic designer and WordPress aficionado. When I'm not in front of the computer, you can find me remodeling my house, cycling, or out with the wife, dog, and soon-coming baby girl on a walk.

lqlarry, thanks for your answer. My wife & I have been talking more about the sanders & the large cement grinder tonight. I'm going by the tool rental place tomorrow to see what they have available.

comment How do I remove construction glue from brick?
I've heard of using a heat gun to make the glue pliable again in combination with a sturdy scrapper or using an acid mixture (NOT my first choice, by the way!)

comment How can I temporarily soundproof my apartment ceiling?
Another solution might be, gray foam eggcrate, much like they use in recording studios. Turn them backwards against the ceiling in keep noise out of your room instead of in your room. Never used it before, but that's my educated guess-timate.

comment How do I fill in the grooves in wood paneling in order to paint over it?
+1 - I think this would be a great, low cost quick-fix, no worries about cracking and still paintable. Sure, it'll most likely have a texture, but at least there won't be the possibility of the grooves still being seen. I will say you'll need to buy new nails or screws though.

comment After I soundproof my bedroom wall with QuietRock, will I need to somehow soundproof the floor?
If you're handy (sounds like it) you could try these DIY Risers.

comment How do I install wood shutters on a brick house?
This is exactly the information I needed. If I went with the Metal Hit Anchors, would 3/16 still be my best bet, or do they just come in lengths? Also, this may be a stupid question, but if I use 3/16" screws, would I also use 3/16 drill bit or a step down? Which do you prefer: screws or the hit-anchors? Thanks for your help!

Thanks for that, I'll keep this in mind for the future, for future projects. I think I'll stick with Justin's answer & just use screws, though. Screws are in my budget :/ I'm not sure lag bolts/shields are. I appreciate the thought put into your answer!
