comment Why does the outlet work for a washer, but not a light fixture?
What type of light? Incandencent bulbs (and many appliances) are forgiving but CFL and LED bulbs often require correct hot/neutral wiring. Get an electrical outlet tester from your favorite hardware store and use that.

comment Adding electrical service to detached garage

comment How can I safely remove and replace a wall?
Note that altering structure generally requires a permit. Don't avoid this! They'll at least validate that the work you're planning is safe.

comment What type of common materials can I use to detect water infiltration/leaks?
Somewhere I have instructions for making a powder that bursts into flame when exposed to water. Probably not what you're looking for, though.

comment How do I get my fluorescent 4-tube under-cabinet lights to come on reliably?
If it gets really bad that may be the case but the first symptom is typically that it has trouble starting up.

comment Why won't my new Craftsman garage door opener power on?
A 3rd, unlikely option is that the outlet is wired incorrect and the opener doesn't like it but whatever else was tried didn't care. (But I'd guess it's installed wrong.)

comment What's a nifty way to restrict my dog run without re-installing it?
It's a good answer but it would be more helpful if you can provide a photo (or a link to a photo) to clarify exactly what you mean.
