comment Everything in my house vents into the ceiling cavity. Should I change this?
If there's good ventilation in the attic space, you may never have a problem. The practice of venting to the outside, is to reduce the probability of a problem. Even if you don't vent the exhaust properly, you might never have a problem. You are, however, increasing your risk by not venting properly.

comment Help connecting cat5e cables for home networking
The top most beige cable is cat3 with two phone lines. The red and green wires are line one, black and yellow are line two. All the other beige cables may be cat5, though are used only for a single phone line. The yellow cables are also cat5, and are also used for a single phone line.

You should use a switch to connect multiple network cables together, not a hub.

comment Can we install a sink and garbage disposal using the plumbing for a washing machine?
Yes... Maybe... Probably. There's no way to answer this, without more detail. Photos would be the most useful, but a detailed description of the plumbing would also work.

comment How do I determine what size Generator I need?
If the current draw is enormous, the generator must also be enormous. The generator must be sized to the load it will supply.

comment How to encourage a specific, fuzzy pest - rabbits
Plant some clover. Bunnies love it. If you have dogs, they might enjoy eating the bunny pellets. Which could lead to disease and/or parasites.

comment Wiring requirement for small kitchen
@Evan No, it's not two circuits for countertop receptacles. It's at least two 20 ampere small appliance branch circuits per kitchen.

CuLator® Metal Eliminator and Stain Preventer. I am not affiliated with this product, and do not endorse or recommend it's use. It's simply the first product I found when searching "remove metal from pool water".

comment Old cellulose insulation holding heat during summer
Are you saying the heat from the insulation is being released back into the house, or that the air in the house is not cooling off as fast as the air outside? If the latter, I'd say the insulation is working as designed (i.e. preventing the transfer of heat through the ceiling).

comment Is my circuit breaker box grounded? If not, can it be?
Do you have a breaker box and a fuse box, or are you using the terms interchangeably?

comment Is my circuit breaker box grounded? If not, can it be?
There is no way for somebody an internet away, to tell you if your breaker box is grounded. If an Electrician that was on site says it's not, then it's probably not.
