comment Should I stop to hand-sharpen my chainsaw, or bring extra chains?
+1 for unforseen problems. The one time you need a new chain is always when you have to hike 2 miles to get it.

comment How do I replace missing drywall strips after an asbestos abatement?
Good answer! One addition - if this is your first time I'd have a sponge and water ready for cleaning mud where you don't want it. Also if you are unhappy with a mud coat you can come back in the first couple of hours and smooth it out a bit with the sponge.

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?
