comment How to prevent washing machine drain overflow
An all important question: where does the water go next? Sewer? Leach? How many inches slope might there be?

comment Closet doors makeover
Those LOOK like lightweight cheap hollow doors. IF they are solid instead, you have a nice canvas to work on.

Um, what does the vendor say? Can you buy an insulated shed instead?

comment How water proof is concrete?
Get little USB key humidity meter and leave it down there for a week. And without question a 24 hour or 48 hour radon gas test.

comment Suggestions on finishing a concrete vault
Your humidity start too high given that setup. Insulating perfectly would remove the primary advantage of the underground location, in terms of temperature stability.

What climate are you in? Beware of creating two water barriers.

comment Should I use a GFCI or AFCI circuit breaker with knob and tube wiring?
@Tester101 it's still a nuisance trip. Agreed on the eventual harmony between devices and AFCI's.

comment Identifying a bulb from a 1969 built light fitting
Are you sure it's not threaded. Stick your hand down there to the ceramic part. It looks like a totally standard Edison base, if threaded.

@Tester101 I am the source. The vacuum appears normal, is owned by the house cleaner. I have not put an oscilloscope to the line, at least not yet. The house lights don't dim or anything. The vacuum is presumably used every day.

@Tester101 here's a source dated August 2014: every time the cleaners come they trip our AFCI with their vacuum (a generic Kirby HEPA canister). The AFCI was purchased new in 2012.
