comment Hose Bib still leaks even after replacing washer
Is it leaking when the bib is turned OFF or when it is ON. If leaking when it is ON then you likely also have to clean up the stem of the valve and replace the rubber packing seal as well.

comment Hose Bib still leaks even after replacing washer
When you had it apart did you look to see if the inner part of the valve was free of debris? Was the seat that the replacement washer squeezes against nice and smooth all the way around without cracks, nicks or corroded areas?

comment Conflict with roofer
A contract is a contract. Make him remove the shingles, install the proper sheathing and the put on new shingles. If you do happen to accept the discount make sure that it encompasses the cost of the sheathing material plus the labor to install it. You may need to contact a separate contractor to get a fair accessment of these costs.

comment Outbuilding power failure
I am voting to close your question because, due to the mumbo jumbo that you typed in, it is nearly impossible to discern what your real question really is. Clean up your submission using proper sentence structure, full words instead of the lazy abbreviations and use decent punctuation. Doing that will probably enable you to write out a clear question that is understandable.

comment Tire Swing Frame
You really want to also consider adding an angle brace near each top corner of the A-Frame and the horizontal beam so that you do not get sidewise flex and racking of the structure. These can be attached to a cross member that forms the horizontal bar of the A on each side. This would also make a very good place to attach the hammock hooks too.

comment Tire Swing Frame
Let me add that I 120% agree that the structure should be an A-frame. One thing to consider is that the legs of the A-frame do not need to be 6x6 timbers. I would think that 4x4 timbers would be more than adequate and quite a bit cheaper as well.

comment Bathtub shower leaks in wall only when turned off
Is there a possibility that the shower/tub enclosure is not fully supported by the building structure and that flex is placing a stress on the incoming plumbing? It could be that some of the pressure fittings only leak when stressed.

comment kitchen sink and trap
You really should provide some pictures of this installation. Your description could very well be confusing but from what you've said said it can be concluded that your sink has never had the ability to drain. Now I suspect that this is not actually the case and so thus the request for a photograph or two.
