comment Why is Green Glue used so much in the USA, but hardly used at all in the UK?
Sometimes when a question is asked, it helps to know what is being talked about. I'm assuming you are referring to Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound which is basically dumdum in a tube, an elastomeric goo that can be used between layers of sheetrock to provide sound deadening?

comment Re-use circuit breaker handle tie?
As long as the circuit details (one pulls off L1 and the other pulls off L2) are taken care of and the tie bar stays securely in place when installed AND disengages the other breaker on trip, you should be home free.

comment We hear a constant bass subwoofer like thumping noise every night from about midnight to 7 am
Also available is wave guide tunneling caused by air layer density. The train yard is 3 miles away and across a river, but on certain nights with the right temperature, you would swear the locomotive was running in the next street and when they bump to couple, it can sound like a minor car accident occurred. The rest of the year it's a minor whisper in the breeze. A molding plant up the hillside and 6 miles away in the same direction gave us a low continuous loud hum in our back yard when it bounced off the top of that same air layer.
