comment How do I raise light switches so my kids can't keep toggling the light?
I suppose rigging it so the kid gets a shock and instilling a life long irrational fear of light switches in the child is out of the question...

comment Can p-trap be installed higher than drain entry?
Adding a second trap is more than redundant, it creates a vapor lock that will impede drainage.

hard to see from directly above - at what level are the vinyl and the metal strip? Can you post another shot head on to the area in question?

A temporary fix at the very best, and one that leaves a greasy residue as well.

Also refer to Chris' excellent answer concerning not having 1" strips of flooring in your rooms...

It's a stylistic choice, I just always heard "run it with the long wall".

comment When bolting down a porcelain toilet, how tight is “too tight”?
Exactly - the point of the bolts is to hold the toilet in place, NOT to create the seal. The seal is created by the wax ring. One quarter turn too far on that bolt and you've ruined a multi hundred dollar toilet. If it doesn't move when you sit on it, it's tight enough!

To @pigrew Cannot emphasize enough - DENSE PACK is bad for insulation. The R value on cellulose is its fluffy, properly installed value. Dense insulation is called "useless" (unless its foam)
