comment How do I prevent water from collecting against side of house?
Putting a skimcoat of concrete is pretty easy if you've prepped the surface well. A pretty front walkway is a pro job, but for something like this you can do a good job if you get it angled a bit and leave it alone.

comment Which material should I use for a whiteboard that would erase easily?
409 works like a charm. I spray it on a dry-erase eraser and go. You really can't beat tileboard on price. I've got 70 square feet of workspace for under $25. Even pricey whiteboard doesn't come completely clean after a few months of hard use without a cleaning product.

comment Should a bathroom fan vent to a separate duct system?
It's entirely possible it's not vented at all. That would be a fantastic way to grow mold.

comment Should I install baseboards before or after skimcoating?
I found I became overly protective of all my trim after I shanked a cut on a $15 piece of crown molding.

comment Questions about Heating/Cooling, ducting
Not an HVAC guy, but it seems like since hot air is going to expand, the vents in the middle are probably supplying the air you're feeling in the front. Alternatively, if there are more branches to the front of the house, you'd have reduced air flow at each vent, but still an aggregated amount of heat.

comment What quick and dirty tool/method should I use for cutting scrap drywall?
That's what I'm talking about! And like any good tool, it creates a project of it's own - expanding the workshop to squeeze it in.

Hadn't thought of that...maybe hose em down a bit right before hand.

My one chance to be as messy as I want on a job and I've been convinced to use the ol' boxcutter. Sigh...

Ooh...I forgot about the rotozip. I borrowed my dad's to cut the holes for fixtures and boxes. Is there a bit that will keep it straight, or clamp and go?

comment Can a dryer be vented through the roof?
Venting through the roof is a common practice in areas where you can't get under the house. Obviously the ideal is to stick your dryer on the outside wall and vent it 10 inches. I haven't seen anything to indicate that lint buildup is a problem as long as the run is as short as possible and pressure off the dryer is adequate. Distance and # elbows should be a greater concern than gravity.
