    Trey should know by now that one good, long screw is better than several short, quick ones. Perhaps he needs a stud finder.

    quality takes time. Any wife will tell you that. The neighborhood handiman has to pay a visit if you screw hangs up and usually while you are at work.

  • Be sure you use the green lid compound for the top coat. If you don't know the lightweight compound with the blue lid has styrofoam in it. It is a pia to sand and often gets pin holes. It's perfectly fine for the first few heavy coats because it drys faster since it has less water but use the green lid all purpose compound for the top.

    The yellow wire will be an arc fault circuit, will string plug mold across the bottom of the cabinets, will have about fifty outlets

    In my last kitchen me and Russ did this, it was great. Was very easy to plug in appliances like coffee makers and such without having cords everywhere. Wouldn't do it any other way. I also really like the clean back splash look versus having outlets every couple of feet. Only regular outlet is right next to the sink which is a GFI

    I can only imagine what it's like to live in your house.

    One room has been sheetrocked for a year. Possible a couch with plastic on it.
    One room is sheetrocked but the microwave is sitting on the floor.
    One room is just full of inductors/caps/and wreaks of lead.
    The last room has a sink and tub installed while there is only home depot bucket on the floor. The bucket at least has a delrin seat with a little dynomatting to knock down the vibrations...

    Thanks guys!

    me and a Buddy came up with that about 6 years ago. This go around I just made any needed repairs and I had to redo the 1/4" of the room where the laundry room use to be...
