comment Water Meter and pipe size
I think as long as you don't run 3/4" pipe over the 1500ft, you shouldn't notice a difference.

comment Water Meter and pipe size
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?

The money you get for the copper will pay for the new materials. So just labor.

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.

comment How do I remove countersunk baluster screws?
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!

comment Are there any restrictions on using crimped connections to electrical devices (receptacles, switches)?
What I would do, instead of using the crimped connections is use solid-wire pigtails. Then, you could wrap the solid wire around the screw terminal and tighten. It would be more secure, imho, than the crimped connectors.

can't answer specifically to code, but your installation seems unusual. I presume that wire is stranded? If you are using solid wire, it would be better if you just wrapped the wire around the outlet's screw and tightened it.

In a kitchen. Where's the microwave you're talking about?

Seems like an an obvious answer, but is your microwave in a kitchen?
