comment Garage ceiling code regulation-bank loan
Can you elaborate? As written, the community will deem this question off-topic, because it sounds like you're asking a banking question.

comment Can I remove HVAC pipes after exposing the ceiling?
You can remove the insulation, but It might not look good and may be noisey. As for moving the register, as long as it's not near the return there's no problem. Go for it man. You're not going to kill anyone. Worst case scenario is this room is 4 degrees cooler/warmer than your other rooms.

comment good practice for using a circular saw
+1 for making sure your hands are in a safe place. Also make sure that your groin is in a different plane from the saw and cut piece. I had a sergeant in the Army who made that mistake. After the accident, his nickname was 'uniball'.

comment Will it affect the water pressure if a 3/4“ meter is installed on a 1 1/2” water line?
I think as long as you don't run 3/4" pipe over the 1500ft, you shouldn't notice a difference.

One negative aspect of having a larger meter is it will likely result in a higher service charge. In my city, the service charge increase for a 1-1/2" meter over a 3/4" meter is about $85 a month.

You say the distance from the pump house to your house is 1500 ft. Will the meter be next to the house?

comment Is there code that states there must be a sheet of plastic between vinyl siding and the house sheathing?
Regardless of whether the WRB is required by code, if they fail to fix the situation, you can sue the contractor for breach of contract for having failed their legal duty to use workmanlike care, as the standard for workmanlike care for your location surely includes a WRB and window flashing.

comment How do I remove countersunk baluster screws?
@TXTurner no need for a center bit, but if you use it, you could just make the hole off-center of the screw.

You wouldn't want to use a plug cutter to make the holes. You'd want a hole saw to make the holes, and a plug cutter to make the plugs to fill the holes!

comment What's involved in moving a support post?
I like the narrow countertop. Makes the house look less like a spec built home, and I'm sure there would be many uses for it. Take down the phone from the 90s and you're set!
