comment Was my shed repaired properly?
It won't continue to rot if the leak was properly sealed. But we're on the same page otherwise. :)

Vinyl tube? Do you mean PEX?

comment When hanging two layers of drywall, can the first layer be hung with the facing to the studs?
If the heads pop on the first layer it won't matter anyway. The 2nd layer will hold the first layer.

comment How proud can a toilet flange sit above the floor?
@Tester101 See edits - the 45/45 combo turned out to line up perfectly when I factored in the underlayment. A few thick ends of waterproof shims and it's solid. :D

comment How proud can a toilet flange sit above the floor?
@Tester101 I have tried. Big Orange and Big Blue didn't have any, but there's a specialty plumbing store nearby that might carry a better selection. Next time I'm out I'll check there. Otherwise, I've got a 3" flange w/ a built in 45 and another 45 and that's better but still not perfect. What I really need is a 4"/3" Fernco coupling that has an offset 3"... ah well.

@stephen it doesn't matter when I put the flange in it's the pipe links with the bends to prevent it from going lower

Worse, its been like that for years. The entire floor around the toilet has been soft for a while. When we pulled the toilet and put weight on the back area under the tank(now removed), the 3/4" TiG floor sank a visible 1/2" at least with very disturbing cracking sounds...
