comment Best way to secure a cat enclosure to the ground?
@Abe Miessler, agree with "ppumkin" above suggestion of burying the side walls into the ground. In North America 2ft (600mm) is deep enough to keep any critters out, though I am saying that from a gardening prospective, so going down even deeper might not be a bad idea...

comment What kind of fastener should I use to hang things on cabinets?
can you post a photo showing the cabinets & the ceiling? Then indicate on the photo where you would prefer to have the rod hung. Also is it an option with the system you're buying to cut the rod to an exact length?

comment What is the best way to calculate the angle at which crown moulding should be cut?
+1 for copping internal corners, is "generally" the only way to go with internal corners (IMHO).

@Matt Chambers, I've answered your above comment, "But in that case I still want to know how fast moisture comes out of dry ground", the best I can in my edited answer. You're also going to have to forgive my ignorance when it comes to "Conditioned Crawl Space" as that is something that is extremely! rare in the UK domestic housing market...
