comment Fix a Leaky Faucet?
And blogs! Everyone needs a blog entry about fixing faucets. Disclaimer: I wrote this several months after this answer.

comment Is there a way to store drywall vertically on its side?
Make sure you strap it to the wall or something. I know 1/2" will bow if it's just leaned against a wall for months.

comment Second layer of drywall on textured ceiling: Do I need to sand down or remove the texture before second layer goes on?
Yeah, I was sorta leaning this way too. 1/8 isn't a lot, and the texture will probably be flattened when the new wallboard is screwed up, but then again it wouldn't be very hard to run a pole sander over the ceiling and knock it down a bit.

comment How do I prepare an already painted wall for new paint?
A tinted primer when going from light to dark paint also seems to help. We put a thick forest green type color over a pale yellow in two rooms. The first was just painted over, took 4 coats! The second with a tinted primer coat took just 2 coats of paint.

comment How do I install this fire screen?
@DA01 The front is wide open if that door isn't leaning in place. We never use and probably will never use this fireplace, I'm running the AC right now.

comment How to avoid using door trim
I think the pre-hung door is the sticking point here, generally "hidden" doors use custom hinges and a wider jamb (or something like ezy jamb).
