comment How to get proper support for a closet system from a firewall?
It is not a 2x4 it is a 2x2. I am aware that 2x4 does not actually mean 2 inches by 4 inches and should have been clearer about the size in my OP. Please see my update. The product weight itself is 85 lbs and that's before customization and clothes. I would say upwards of 300 lbs total.

Mike this was occurring before that fan install + the fan is on a completely different breaker.

comment What type of wire should I run when updating a ceiling fan?
OK my plan then is to slide the fan wall switch all the way up. Pull the cord until it's at the highest setting. Slide the fan wall switch all the way down then remove the cord. Thanks!

comment What type of wire should I run when updating a ceiling fan?
Perfect. I think you answered it all. I finally RTFM and reviewed the wiring diagram. That switch above is in the manual as an example of the switch I can use. I will def go in that direction. Do you pull the string to set it at the highest fan speed then use the slider to change it? I take for granted the switch will come with its own wiring diagram. Thanks!

@bib The new fan does have a light ( hence the blue wire, right? ). There is a light on the old fan. The light and fan were not separately controlled. The new fan does not have a remote control unit.

comment Should I cancel our appointment with the repair tech for our washing machine?
Actually 6 1/2 months isn't long at all. What kind of warranty do you have? Could the repair be covered under warranty? If so let them do it.

comment How does the drywall meet a direct-to-tub surround edge?
Thanks. Great response. What type of J-Channel would you use (a link to a Home Depot/Lowes product would be great. For the shims do they have precut shims at the depth I need or will I have to do a little carpentry?

Ok that makes a lot of sense. What kind of j-channel would you use?

comment What benefit do plasterboard/drywall screws have?
As far as drywall is concerned "rack of coat hooks" is a great deal of weight.

Should I get the 3 ft or 6ft? It's an upstairs toilet if that matters.

comment Can I replace all the Qest pipe in my home by myself?
+1 I like the idea of replacing the pipe in one room and judging my ability based on that experience. I will let the clock run out but if nobody else answers better looks like the bounty is yours.

Sugru, if you have it. Black tape maybe?

Would a heat gun work to loosen the crud?
