This won't help with sudden noises unfortunately. Thought I do play music for him at night.

comment Should I create my own faucet aerator?
This may also cause noise to come from the shut off valve. You can get the save effect by not turning your hose on all the way. You end up with a whistle noise. Find the right tool for the job.

Their is another bedroom in the image. But I'm pretty sure my 8yo, will not enjoy me tearing down his wall to share the bedroom with his 3yo brother. Though I sure could use a 20x12 bedroom!!

Are there any other possible options that don't include ripping apart an entire bedroom? Maybe some type of blow in insulation or foam? But I'm beginning to see the light of doing the bedroom rather than the bath.

Funny you say the simplest solution is to swap bedrooms. He sleeps more in there than his room! But the layout of the bedroom does not work and closet is not big enough for two people.

comment How can I sound proof bathroom walls?
As much as I would love to tear that room apart to solve the issue 100%, I spent many hours painting that room would be a real shame to tear it all down. Bathroom still seems easier. Also I have the assistance of a ex-carpenter who's done drywall. It's all to be DIY.

comment Carpet company wants to charge me for the waste they will have left over. Is this normal?
I sure wish the installer that did my house when it was built (a spec home) read this line "A good installer will also consider traffic" before they decided to put a seam right down the middle of my living room in a VERY high traffic area.

comment What should we look for when buying a fixer-upper house?
Big point here on finding a house that is outdated. Normally it is a very livable house but needing some help to modernize it. Kitchens are outdated fast and can cost lots to do but you can visit the factories "seconds" type shops where cabinets are cheap but slightly imperfect.

comment How do I remove a stuck faucet/tap cover?
WD-40 is not a penetrating oil. So YMMV when using it in this type of situation.

It's hard work, but yanking them is often the better way to go.

I don't think you can preen your lawn can you? The OP didn't say it was his lawn so I'm just guessing.

comment What is the easiest way to remove a large root in a post hole I'm digging?
Ahhh. I was able to turn an 8 foot and a 5 foot section into two nearly 7 foot sections. Thus avoiding my root problem.

comment How much compaction should I get from crushed rock?
Thanks again for the perfect answer to such a subjective question. The tip proved to be the perfect solution.

comment How much compaction should I get from crushed rock?
The compation for this ended up being much more than I'd hoped. The 4yds ended up not being sufficient for a 4" layer for ~324sqft despite being told it would be by the landscape company. But the compaction ended up being around an inch or so. But is now looks and feels as tight as cement.

comment What should the ratio of crushed rock and sand for a paver patio be?
Did you put anything under the crushed rock for future weed control? Something like a plastic lining or as I read somewhere, a layer of tar paper that is used for under shingles on a roof? It just so happens I have the majority of a roll left of the tar paper from building my shed last year and figured it might be a good way to use some of it.
