comment How wide can a sliding door be open, before it becomes a security risk?
I'd suggest that your device will not stop a determined person with malicious intent. Just to test this out, I've personally defeated the "piece of wood in the track" option with bent wire. Instead, consider whether they'll be able to defeat the device without waking you.

@Mazura an airgap helps prevent backflow of contaminated water into the supply in the unlikely event of pressure inversion in the pipes.

comment What are the pros and cons of adding a vapor barrier behind shower backer board?
If he uses a product like durock, he must apply a barrier to protect the studs. This could be something like kerdi (in your example) or redgard or a traditional barrier but never more than one of these.

comment How would I connect several speakers to an amplifier for multi room sound?
@chegov Your amplifier has a max rating per channel. A splitter won't increase this power, it will just match the impedance as needed. I'd suggest that you amp with 2 channels likely doesn't have sufficient power for six speakers but I would be more certain if you gave me the model number

comment Can insulation batts run on top of wall studs?
@TheEvilGreebo I wouldn't use bungee cords but I would use steel springs that will tolerate the attic environment.
