comment How should I add flooring in my “crawl” space?
No available window? Actually you'ld probably want to bring in stone/gravel and pour over that.

What makes you think that its the joist itself that's squeaking? That would be an extremely unusual condition.

comment What thickness of closed cell spray foam should I use on my basement walls?
Can't say I agree with the reasoning, because the two issues - vapor barrier vs. thermal break - are completely different. The vapor barrier can be as thin as 6Mil plastic - the R value has to do with temperature conductivity - and more is always better (but to diminishing degrees).

comment How can I build a shuffleboard surface that is movable?
I thought about that approach - but I was thinking that building the surface as one piece would make it easier to create that perfectly level surface.

Ever heard the saying, "penny wise, pound foolish"? Saving money now can cost you big later - kinda like the Fram oil filter slogan. ;)

comment Why does my kitchen faucet have low pressure after the water heater was replaced?
Is the water pressure in the kitchen low for both cold and hot water? Your fridge wouldn't be affected regardless as it only gets a cold feed and would be fed prior to the hot water heater feed.
