Slightly too narrow frameless glass shower door

I had someone finish my bathroom and he wasn't very good. He ended up building a shower opening that was about 1" wider than the door I bought. However, I didn't notice this until I'd installed...

Additional info

Someone said something about the possibility that it could be a door bell transformer. It is not that (I don't have a doorbell) though I do have an alarm system. I've sniffed around there and it's...

Follow up

Thanks for the feedback.

To hit the points briefly.

I've never had a rodent problem. I have been in houses with them and I've never seen the signs here. It could be something in the chimney,...

Additional info

I thought it could be a transformer. I don't have a door bell but do have a security system.

The unfortunate thing is, most of the tradesmen who have been here don't smell it. One thought it...

I'm going to give it one more go, trying to be patient, giving it 24 hours to dry before sanding and applying more drywall compound (at...

So... I got my joint compound, and began to spread it on, a thin layer around the edge of the tear. Eventually it became clear to me that I was not going to get anything like a smooth edge around...

Thanks for the reply.

Hmm, the sanding dust may have been a problem. I did wipe it off, but started at the top, moving to the bottom. The top seems to have remained intact, so it could be by...

Epic disaster?
I just did a repair on some drywall. I had to add mud on top of paint to smooth out a rather bad first mudding job.

Once that was done, and sanded smooth, I applied a nice wide...

I bought orange peel texture spray and it went on waaay too chunky, even when I dialed it down. Would it be possible just to roll a bunch of layers of paint to match the texture? Right now you can...

Unhappy Patching and painting holes in drywall makes obvious texture differences

I took down some shelves a few weeks ago, and some of the paint pulled off the wall. It looks like the previous owner did not prime the drywall, because the paint took off all the layers right to...

Another approach?

Thanks for the clarification, GBR.

So here is my thought, everybody. Stick with me, I'd really like people's feedback.

Problem: I need vented soffits, and air passages into the attic. It...

More information and more problems

I managed to peek under the existing aluminum soffit, and to my dismay learned that there is no wood soffit--the walls just continue right up and meet the roof. So in profile it would look sort of...

Adding vented soffits to existing ones

I apologize if this has been asked before. I want to insulate and ventilate the roof of my 90 year old home. I am all ready to go but have noticed that I don't have vented soffits. The soffits are...
