maybe put some lattice around the vents some kind of barrier between the deck and vents

comment How can I replace these light switches?
it'd help if you'd draw a picture. the "hole in the back" is almost always an alternate to the screw beside it, allowing easier installation. you should look into how exactly a switch works. finally, i'd recommend buying a non-contact voltage tester; it'll tell you which wire(s) are from the source (prob wire 2) and which are going to the lights.

comment My house has steel “2x4s” in the walls, can I hang cabinets, a TV, or some other heavy item from them?
think about all the weight that stud is already carrying.. shingles + roof and side sheathing + siding + etc. Of course, the weight is distributed across a bunch of them

comment Is there a way to sound proof my basement while I've got part of the ceiling open?
"sound proof" was probably a little high-hoping for my situation. "better sound proof"

comment Mould on the inside of a bitumen corrugated sheet
the top side looks normal then? is the top side a different finish (e.g. waterproofing)? in any event, ventilation is a good idea..

comment Mould on the inside of a bitumen corrugated sheet
the coloration and pattern definitely makes it look like mold. can you take a cotton swab and scrape some off or is the coloration inside/part of the roof? also, if you have no ventilation, it may (or may not) be a good idea to to take out some bricks in the top rows. maybe every 4th or 5th or something to give it an aesthetic appearance (as well as functional)..

comment Does anything need to be done to prep the ground before building a low height deck?
more durable; no splinters; doesn't warp; keeps color. my family has a small lake cabin that used to have an old wood deck. man, if you didn't wear sandals on that thing, you were priming for a splinter. we replaced it with a composite deck and it's worlds better. it is a high traffic area, whereas yours might be used a lot less...

putting in transition strips will ruin the flow that continuous wood floors give you

comment Can I hang a bathroom shelf with command strips or something similar?
if it says in the agreement "any holes larger than a standard hanging nail will result in a total charge of $75" OR "$37.50 /large hole", then the challenge would surely fail.

you could have definitely challenged that.
