Question Maybe I should have bought a lotto ticket?

So we chipped out the concrete around the drain thinking we were just going to have to make do, and lo and behold, there was a rubber fitting a bit farther back and it actually IS a 2" drain line...

Do you leave it without flushing regularly?...

Do you leave it without flushing regularly? Because that will expedite the growth of mold every time. I only know this because my toilets seem to have little boy pee in them every time I go to use...

Cwbuff,

Thanks! I was taught how to be a little bit of everything because I grew up on a farm and my dad really wanted a son, but was "cursed" with two daughters instead. :-P It was awesome to...

Cwbuff,

I looked at tile-redi, but I didn't see a custom floor drain option (and if they have one, it's probably not any cheaper than the Onyx we decided was too expensive). Our drain isn't...

The Ana White website has some garage shelves that are or can be made completely self supporting (you still attach to them wall to keep them from tipping either way).

As for the workbench, I like...

Pilot Dane,

That makes sense, since this house is 50+ years old. Believe it or not, we didn't tear up the old one when we took the pan out, is there a way to salvage them? It's still attached...

XSleeper,

LOL! It's only going to be 32" after the remodel is finished. Right now it's a little less than 30, but I was willing to give up some depth on the cabinet/vanity to get it. Do those...

Where to store in-use towels so they can dry?

Maybe I'm the only person who doesn't wash towels after each use, but it seems wasteful, so I don't. The problem I'm running into is this:

Where the heck do people store their in-use (read: wet)...

Manden,
She said new, but then said it's what they used on the floors in their showroom when they remodeled last--about 15 years ago. (I know this because they are remodeling right now and she said...

Marq1,

I wish I could make this shower bigger, but unless I'm willing to forgo a washer and dryer, there's no way to do it. Especially since we just barely eeked out the space for a water softener...

Softener has been in for a week or so now, and it's pretty awesome. I didn't realize that my hair and skin would be softer too, I only ever heard about the using less soap (and calcium buildup)...

Thanks guys. I wasn't too worried about the salt causing health problems I was more bothered by the flavor it takes on after being softened. Kind of soapy maybe? It's hard to describe, but it doesn't...

I have the same prob as the OP with a different dryer, but I'm surprised to see other people say that's normal. My current dryer is 10 years old, and just started doing that the last couple of years....

Which water softener should I get? + will a carbon filter reduce the soft taste?

We're finally going to do it. We've ordered a new hot water heater, and worked out how to move it so that we have room for a softener.

My water is 24.6 GPG of hardness, and it sounds like I need a...

Forgive my ignorance, but what you mean by "making room for a twin"? The space is trapped by a furnace on one side and a water heater on the other. And the water line coming in pops out of the...
