comment Is wood flooring in bathroom a right decision?
From experience, wood anywhere near a toilet used by young boys equals high maintenance.

comment What is this weird plug?
Leaving as a comment as I claim no expertise in continental appliances. I am guessing that the plug has information regarding voltage and amperage on it. A local appliance repair center should have a cord and plug that you can install to match your receptacle. This is assuming that the receptacle meets the minimum requirements of the stove.

comment How hard is it to replace a broken-off toilet seat?
My local hardware store has them available separately. Replacement of the plastic type every two years is much easier than trying to hacksaw off the metal ones after 10 years.

comment Which latch would work with this screen door?
Just a suggestion. Knock on a neighbors door introduce yourself as the new neighbor and ask to look at their door. All the units are likely the same.

I don't know if this feasible as you don't mention the size. Could you cover it with a tarp or sheet of plastic to eliminate most of the evaporation?

comment 1960s bomb shelter a safe place to wait out a tornado?
Many storm prone communities now allow you to register your shelter with a Public Safety Official. In the event the house did collapse they would be aware that you may be trapped in your shelter.

Although not an area of my expertise, I would be concerned with two issues. The hollow door and if the house collapsed into the cellar would you have a means of exit.

comment Can you charge Bosch 18V batteries from your car?
My comment was just to inform the OP that there are inverters large enough to power the charger at a reasonable cost.

comment Can you charge Bosch 18V batteries from your car?
Have you considered cost. My 18v Ryobi charger draws less than 80 watts. Harbor Freight sell units for $20. Likely cheaper than a name brand 12v to 18v charger.
