Became a first time home owner in 2011. It was at the near the bottom of the price range in my region, and for good reason. While my neighbors tell me the house was the jewel of the neighborhood in 2005, it had slowly fallen in to disrepair from the abuse of 5 children and many pets and a general disregard for regular maintenance.

I have been excited to use this as a learning experience in many new skills as I slowly restore the house to its former glory.

Is Cerium Oxide Glass Polishing Compound the polishing compound your referring to? Is this appropriate for very faint hairline scratches in mirrors and windows panes?

comment What open source home automation software exists? What are the differences between them?
Have you heard of the Nest? It really goes above and beyond in automation features for a thermostat, but all the while still being more simple and intuitive to manage than any other thermostat.

comment What is a durable and affordable flooring covering for a shed?
I live in the Pacific NW (I see you are as well), the majority of the year a significant amount of moisture is tracked in to the shed. I was imagining some sort of durable rubber matting (non-slip) would be better then bare wood.

comment What are disadvantages of wood floor covering in shower?
@bemace, I thought the floor in the shot looked a lot like Ikea's PLATTA. If that example is not real wood, there are lots of examples of real wood in "glamor" shots of showers: google image search: "wood shower" I'm wondering how functional it is in real applications.
