It takes a long time for the mirror to defog. Also, I can't find where the piping leads in the attic.

comment What projects should never be DIY?
Getting the popcorn off is the easy part. All the home improvement shows show that step. It's the "making it smooth" part afterwards that they always skip that's the killer.

comment Ceramic glass cooktop testing?
Being a "new" house that I've found slightly faulty but repairable appliances (fridge, water heater, A/C), I wasn't sure if the problem was the stove or the user, so I asked here. Judging from the answers and comments, it seems the stove is fine electrically and that we need to be figure out how to use it correctly.

Not yet. I'm moving into a new house and haven't had a chance to order it.

comment How do I get the sheen even?
I was trying to push the paint into the wall and spreading it to thin. Your suggestions worked beautifully.

comment What is a strong glue for bonding metal?
How do you know it is glue? Some kinds of welds look like glue if you manage to break them apart.

comment Is it worth having two locks in exterior doors?
Great answer! I've locked myself out in a house with two locks, so I'll stick with a single dead bolt for each door. It's cheaper as well.

comment Can I replace a section of copper pipe with flexiable PVC?
In researching SharkBite, I found that my initial idea is not code compliant being inside a wall. SharkBite is allowed in the wall, so I will use that with CPVC instead of flexible PVC.

Lowe's sells the same type product but calls it GatorBITE.
