comment Non-Permanent Air Conditioner for Townhomes
They don't make removable units, because disconnecting and reconnecting the refrigerant lines poses a huge technical challenge. You'd need a connections method that could operate many thousands of times, without ever leaking a drop of refrigerant. The connection method must also withstand the operating pressures of the refrigerant, and never add any resistance to the flow. It's simply not practical.

comment Building Patio - Pavers against siding solution?
The wood framed wall is below grade? Usually; even with a crawlspace, there's a foundation that comes up above grade level.

comment What size conductor do I need to bond water and gas piping?
Decided to leave this question closed, since it was originally closed by 4 of our more active users, and also because the OP didn't seem to care either way (didn't comment or raise reopen flag).
