comment How should I remove the texture from the ceiling *without* tearing it out?
Yeah. Pretty much the whole house is done that way. We loathe it.

No, not popcorn. Stippled as in they put the mud on then use a damp sponge to pull down ugly nasty peaks.

Really? MDF is tougher than wood? I'm shocked.

As to price - sorry - too localized - not a question we can answer here. (I'm in the US, for starters)

Any nailer should be able to handle MDF. It's just pulp and glue... Look for a model that's comfortable in your hand and has adjustment settings that are easy to understand.

comment How can I prevent water from getting behind the gutter?
Look at those pics and you can see water collecting on the white edge just below the shingles. This is because the slow moving water is simply seeping down around the shingle and catching the edge below it. The whole point of a drip edge it that it extends out over the gutter's opening, at a point lower than the surface beneath, so water collects on that edge and drips down into the gutter. Your "drip edge" isn't dripping, it's running off...

Yeah, the first row is way too high up. You don't even HAVE a drip edge in places.

comment How could I flatten these warped sleepers layed on uneven concrete to an acceptable level?
Use the leveling compound below the ditra if you need it. Use the thinset layer as the final leveling layer.

Are the other drains in your house also not draining properly?

I'm questioning your intentions. So you want some rooms with radiators and some rooms with radiant flooring?

You're not thinking of radiators and radiant flooring, are you?
