comment When installing hardwood floor which room should I start with?
I like this approach. I would start with a room that I didn't care too much about to get used to the technique.

comment What is the proper way to remove plywood subfloor?
In the US, "subfloor" means the floor that is directly on top of the joists. If there is additional sheet goods on top of that floor, it may also be called "subfloor". The finish floor then goes on top of it.

comment How do I replace a wooden fence post that was set in concrete?
I also took this approach. After I drilled the post, I used a chisel to remove the remainder of the wood. I ended up having to lengthen the handle of the chisel to reach to the bottom. In my case, the bottom was rotted out so it wasn't that bad. If I needed to burn it out, I'd use a propane weed torch to do it. Make sure you don't burn out a pressure-treated wood post; the fumes will be toxic.
