comment How do I seal/paint pine casing for maximum lifetime?
Also, where the casing comes in contact with the ground/concrete/deck, cut it about a 1/4 inch short, and fill the gap with caulk. This will stop moisture from wicking up from the bottom.

comment Why does my bath faucet drip for a few minutes after it's shut off?
After you shut it off, Turn the diverter to shower and back. Does the water flow out all at once and stop?

comment Can I use latex exterior paint over oil based primer?
You might be able to. But you'd need to do a test first, and that will take more time than running to the store and getting an oil paint.

comment How do I repair a floor joist which has a hole drilled less than 2 inches from the bottom?
The bottom of a joist is, under normal loading, in tension. You should be able to repair it with a steel plate bridging the area with a hole in it. However, you're going to need professional advice. It's not explicitly to code, so you'll need an engineer to sign off on the fix.
