comment Do I have to obtain a permit if an electrician does the work?
I would check with your local inspector. In my area, if you pull a permit as the owner, you are responsible to make sure your meet code, if your contractor pulls it, they are responsible. That is a way for a shady contractor to get out of fixing an issue. Not saying all that use this method are bad.

comment What type of junction box cover do I need?
It's a false back cause we need to get at the plumbing and clean out as well. I would hope that is okay.

comment Are cracks in a newly poured concrete basement floor a problem?
You can also talk to your city inspector. They probably can get you a list of engineers that work on that type of construction. Also, they can put pressure on the contractor to fix it.

comment Why would a sump pump cycle when pumping large amounts of water?
It's really hard to tell. I just decided to call up a septic tank company to take a look. They can pump out the water so they can get a better look at the problem.

You mean I have a choice? I believe the correct words are "yes dear".

comment Plans for building a simple swing set out of wood
I was looking for something similar a couple years ago. The only place I found a kit was at Home Depot. Buying it in a kit with the proper hardware was cheaper than buying each piece separately.

comment How do I install an electrical outlet on a live circuit?
Um... dorm? So you don't own the place? Contact your building manager. But like others have already said, generally you don't have power in a closet.
