comment What grit sandpaper should I use between coats of polyurethane?
Same here, 220 or 320, whatever is handy. I also use #000 Steel Wool at the end, rather than a 600 sandpaper. Sandpaper often gums up in places where a small area hasn't fully cured. I also feel like I can follow the grain a bit better, since I have to go slowly.

Thanks. I just can't imagine a fire when it's 40F (avg winter low for my area)

comment Should I extend my house upward or knock down and build from scratch?
I think the subjectivity of the question can be improved by removing the "what do people think" and asking for more of a pros/cons approach to the two. As-is it reads argumentatively as well (I was told this but I want the internet to back me up). I hope it can be saved though; it's an interesting question.

Good points. It's also generally cheaper to install storm windows than replace your existing ones with higher efficiency models.

I like the idea of omitting the fabric (expensive!). Great link.

comment How should I drain fuel from my mower?
One thing to think about with that wasted gas - what were you going to do with it? You shouldn't keep it until next spring.

Check your wipers too - old wipers will smear that road sludge all over your windshield.

+1 Good one! Also make sure you can find your shovel. I tossed mine when clearing out the garage one summer and forgot to buy a new one. Needless to say that first snowfall left 2 foot drifts on my porch steps.
