Repairing a damaged epoxy floor isn’t too difficult. You DO need to be aware of what materials were used on the floor originally. Some patching materials may not be totally compatible. They may not stick to or blend well with the existing coating.

Buying stuff and reselling it can turn a huge profit under the right conditions. In fact with the power on the internet, some products with drop shipping you do not even have to buy it until the product is sold. Ebay is probably the best known place to get paid to resell items. Other websites like Ubid, Amazon, Oztion and Google Product Search. Individuals can also resale items through newspaper ads, magazine ads and flea markets.

I arrived in the kingdom early evening, was taken to my Saudi compound and was drunk before bedtime! A great introduction to the kingdom and compound life. The following day I was driven from the compound and introduced to everyone and given plenty of helpful advice about what to do and what not to do (Including staying clear of the illegal home made alcohol)!

Part of the reason Bill got hired is because there was a recent mass exodus of contractors, due to the work being taken over by a new company that severely underbid all the other contractors. It meant that the previous contractors were going to be paid about $20,000 less for their work, mainly because the new contractor wasn’t offering an education benefit to contractors with kids. Contractors have to pay for their kids to go to school, while military and DoD employees don’t.

Surface prep for acid staining concrete depends on what condition your slab is in. Newly poured concrete only needs is be allowed time for curing-four weeks after pouring- then some rinsing and scrubbing to remove the dirt and latence from the surface. Older concrete is a different story. Thorough cleaning is required because any dirt, grease, paint, sealer or even curing agent will keep the stain from penetrating and reacting as it should. Do a little test area to make sure it’s ready.… Read More

Typical Bathroom Remodeling Costs (2)

We gutted the entire space except for the tub which was in perfect condition and replaced the boring, square beige tiles with large format tiles of a subtle, threaded pattern. A decorative, highly textured band of stainless steel, stone, and glass runs through the shower and defines the counter of the new dark vanity which is now in scale with the room. New sconces in matte opal glass are twined with ribbons of forged iron. Walls are in a chic hue called Thunder Grey.

Make sure that you make a realistic budget before you start making any improvements to your home and you do your best to stick to the budget. While there are many factors that can make things cost a bit more than expected, you should not be spending thousands of dollars more than you can afford. Whether you choose the halogen light to be from the ceiling, under the cabinet or even at the floor, the halogen light will make a major statement in your kitchen. What a great update!

A very thorough and comprehensive guide for redecorating on a budget. I like these ideas. I am definitely going to use the changing cabinet knobs and drawer pulls tip. Thanks! Change the showerhead. You can buy a rain showerhead, massage showerhead and other models that will give your bathroom a spa look and feel as well as improve your shower experience. Most of the time, you can make the change in five minutes with a wrench. What a fantastic idea! I don’t know how I missed the information in my first reading! Thanks so much!

Personally, I wouldn’t want to be taking down walls and opening up kitchens and bathrooms without a professional. There are such things as load bearing walls, and the removal of them can create structural issues that might see your house on the condemned list. Indeed it is, but we have no choice. Okay, we do, but dueling the spiders in the basement bathroom (door also shut there) is too much for me. All of the above that YOU did scares me except for the buying beautiful towels part and the sign making. Yep. You’re my NEW HERO!!!!

The vanity was pretty awful and just too bulky for the small size of our bathroom. The bathroom isn’t really too small but this big cabinet made it feel small. And the door was forever falling off and being re-attached and falling off again. It drove me all sorts of crazy. Wonderful lens. I wish I had that creativity I see on TV all the time. Some designer gets 1000 dollars and makes the entire house look fabulous. Thanks for the tips to use until then!

Independent contractors are only independent for tax purposes, you know. They are not always that independent otherwise.

In the end, you may have to deviate from the rates you initially set for yourself, and that is okay, especially if it ends up working in your favor, such as lowering your rates but getting continual work with an agency. The main thing is to establish a baseline of your rates in advance, taking all factors into consideration, and to also determine in advance which elements you are willing to negotiate. Remember that when it comes time for you to sign the contract, you want to do so with confidence.

I’m the writer of this hub. Its not stupid to stand up for youself when you are getting beat down by companies taking advantage of their positions. If you are willing to take it, that wouldn’t make you very smart. Its not ok to work your ass off all the time for these contracting companies to take the money you earned whenever they choose to do so. Or for whatever reason they think is ok. So you must not have been in this position or you wouldn’t be bashing those who have.

Make sure you know what type of ports and connectors are available on your TV. HDTV with HDMI ports to connect the speakers. Make sure there is an available port that you can use your speakers.

This receiver streamline its devices: to disconnect the other media devices (game consoles, DVD players, etc) and connect to an HDMI compatible receiver. Now you can connect your speaker system and connect the receiver to the TV receiver only.

Do put furring on your walls: the floor isn’t the only place where moisture can seep into the basement. Apart from ensuring that there won’t be any water issues with your floor, install furring strips on the wall. This should give you about a half inch space between the moisture on the outside of the wall and the interior wall. We recommend a combination of ambient, task and accent lighting to help brighten things up and create a warm atmosphere. Here at KAKS Basement Finishing & Design our priority is our customers, our reputation and integrity!Basement Remodeling

Inexpensive extra space. Remodeling your basement is an excellent way to make use of the space you already have. A basement remodel adds a floor of quiet, private space for less than half the cost per square foot of building an addition (according to the 2013 Remodeling Magazine Cost vs. Value Report). Thanks jpcmc! It is a lot of fun to DIY – I’m waiting for better weather to upgrade the yard 😀 – fixing up existing space to start. An integrated wash basin or freestanding laundry sink located in the same room, means you can easily wash and rinse clothing without having to use a sink in another part of the house.

The most common and frequently encountered installation exposures are the operations of plumbing, heating, air conditioning and electrical contractors. These contractors vary in size from small family operations to large corporations with projects of varying sizes spread throughout the country.

Insulation, siding, cabinet makers, tile contractors and roofing contractors have exposures similar to those operations above.

Civilian law enforcement may be allowed to come on base to serve court papers, make an arrest of a civilian dependant, attend meetings, or to use certain facilities such as the PX, Commissary, or gym.

Our last view is of the slip repair. The steps have been covered in fresh stone, over a permeable membrane. The stone starts at a level 500mm below the level of the adjacent access road. In the foreground is the completed part of the new drain, with an access pit on the right. The stone is consolidated with the roller on the left. More stone is awaited to finish this job, possibly at the end of next week (depending on weather and stone deliveries). Progress so far looks good.

When it comes to home enhancement tasks to include value to your home, bathroom remodelings are important. When you add the attractiveness of bathroom tile design to the mix you are on a victorying streak.

One-piece shower units consist of almost every necessary shower component — drain pan , shower walls, glass door, plumbing and fixtures — all in a prepackaged, self-contained unit. These may be good product options if you’re seeking to install a new shower in an area such as a basement, as the one-piece configuration may cut down on time spent preparing the installation site or replumbing existing drain or supply lines. But if the unit begins to leak water or deteriorate overall, you may need to replace the entire system rather than just one component.

The job of installing our wall-mounted fixtures was tougher than it had to be, thanks to poor and contradictory one-size-fits-all instructions, metric fittings and duplicate and missing mounting parts. Prevent hard-to-fix future problems by test-fitting the actual fixtures when roughing in framing, plumbing and blocking to make sure everything will work out. Then finish the walls. When test-fitting, simulate finished floor and wall surfaces to get the clearances right.

A vertical lighting on the side of the mirror projects the best result. Take note, not all fixtures of sidelights are perfect. So it is better to rely on certain basic fixture so that your vanity lighting will be very effective. A suggested fixture of lighting would be 75 to 80 inches above the floor so that would be around more than 6 feet in height. The ideal placing of lights in between must spread over a fixture that’s at least 24 inches long, a 150 watts lighting is ideal on this set up. This is to make sure to wash your face with bright light.

Finding a good and cost efficient contractor is no easy task. Most people recommend interviewing at least three. I recommend you call many more than that. When you tell them your plan at least half of them will decline to bid your job. I would also say that at least half of the remaining contractors will fail to pass your background and reference check. If you call at least 12 contractors you’ll probably find three to five from whom you can get full bids.… Read More

Cup hooks and under shelf wire baskets give me additional storage. My paper towel holder is an under shelf mount. I also have two stemware racks (on the shopping list above) mounted under one of the shelves allowing extra shelf space for more needed dishes.

What is the duration of the restriction? It’s in your best interest to negotiate the shortest duration you can get. You also should attempt to get some protections against being fired. This can be done with language specifying that in the event you are involuntarily terminated, the duration of the restriction shall be equal to the number of weeks of severance pay you receive. This means if you receive a year’s severance pay, you would be restricted from competing for a year. If you receive no severance pay, there would be no restrictions.
