comment What is the concept behind drywall studs?
When I brought my towel rack back to Ikea and explained my situation, the guy at the return desk just nodded, and said "You wouldn't believe how often I get this."

comment What is the concept behind drywall studs?
There's a big GOTCHA with IKEA products. In North America, Studs are spaced 16" on center. IKEA products are all in metric sizes. This means that something like a towel rack WILL NOT line up with your stud spacing. You can attach one end to a stud, but the other will be hitting unbacked drywall.

Depends on the length of the run. However, if the joists are drilled, they won't be stapled.

comment Is it kosher to splice wiring in the “can” portion of recessed LED lighting?
Well, it's not Kosher unless it's blessed by a Rabbi. But I think it's safe. Just make sure those connections are good and solid. I find splicing wires of different gauges to be difficult at times. Were your connections outside the can, then we'd have a clear code violation.

comment Spray Foam Insulation Health Concerns - Alternative Spray Foam Products
You have a lot of good questions here. However, as it exists right now, it's far too broad. Please break it down into single questions and re-ask them individually. You'll find people will be a lot more willing to tackle a single question.

Take a punch and punch a divot in the wall for the second hole. This will help keep the bit from wandering.
