comment Is it possible to convert a truss attic into living space?
I'm not sure how to make a "real" answer out of this question, but yes I've done it and yes you have the major components down. Another consideration is an egress point depending on the purpose of the living space.

comment How can I dispose of large glass mirrors?
On repurposing, I use freecycle for stuff like this all the time. You could also post in the free section of craigslist.

comment How should I fill in decorative “gashes” in wood siding?
@MikeB - You can use the same paint. Let the bondo cure, sand, prime, and paint it. Sometimes bondo needs a little extra primer (a big patch feels like it sucks it in). Once it's primed well it will take paint without a problem.
