comment How do I replace this switch with a timer?
I can't see anything... Can you please add the images directly to the post? Using an external source for images is a pain in the neck, and requires the other source to last as long as this question does.

comment How do I prevent harmonic resonance hum in PVC vent of newly installed hot water heater?
Is the vent pipe connected directly to the fan, or is there some form of decoupling in place? If there is no decoupling in place, it's very possible that any vibration in the fan is transferred directly to the pipe. When the noise is occurring, try grabbing hold of the pipe (somewhere in the middle) and see if the sound stops (or at least lessens). How is the pipe supported along it's length?

comment How to replace bathroom supply line?
Pro Tip: Some faucets come with an el cheapo basin wrench in the box. It's not the best tool in the world, but it's typically good enough.

comment I have a very humid room in the house, should I isolate it?
Grow houses require quite a bit of ventilation. You'll likely have to install a large exhaust fans to deliver the excess humidity to the outside, as well as a fan to provide fresh "make up" air to replace the exhausted air. The amount of ventilation required, will depend on the number of plants.

comment How to better waterproof the shower area?
Is there a exhaust fan in the bathroom, and does the exhaust fan vent to the outside of the building? If so, are you running the fan during showers, and for about 20-30 minutes after showers?

comment How do I prevent my gable vents from clogging with ice?
You mentioned soffet/fascia. Did you install soffit vents, or simply enclose the soffit? In other words, is there a way for air to enter the attic through the soffit that wasn't there before, or was there previously a way for air to enter the attic that has been closed off?

Check for ground wires coming into contact with the back of the thermostat.
