Yes, that is why I said we have the option of adding it later if we can't make the marble tile work. I'd rather delete the 4" countertop backspalsh if possible as it is antiquated IMO. But if the...

Pilot Dane,

I was thinking a dry look sealer too. Not a fan of the wet look. You mention the hydrophobicity. Does it do the same on the polymeric joints, or does the water soak in as usual?

I thought that as well but then it is absent for months at a time so I doubt that explanation at this point. Also against that explanation is the fact that it sometimes comes from the bathroom and...

There is no crawl space as it is in between floors. There is a 1 foot space to allow venting though. Also, why would the smell only happen in short intervals over long periods of time? I may have...

Smell from ceiling exhaust fans?

The smell comes from the bathroom ceiling fan or sometimes from the adjacent laundry room ceiling fan (both on main floor of 2-story home). Or sometimes both at the same time.

Bosch gas oven problems

14 year old Bosch gas range. The oven set to 'bake' will not ignite. When the setting is turned to 'convection' it turns on. Any ideas on what might be the problem.
