Here's to you Mr. Why-Pay-For-An-Electrician-DIY-Handy-Man-Home-Owner! Why ask for help when you can "get 'er done" all on your lonesome with some wire nuts, speaker wire, and just about anything else you can find!?

Great article from the Chicago Tribune: You won't believe the stuff Jay Markanich has seen on his rounds as a home inspector. Among other things: exhaust fans that vent to nowhere, faulty drain line connections that will surely leak, drywall screws that are used for everything but their intende...

I recently did an inspection on a home built in the early 1990's that had cement fiber lap siding on it. It is doubtful (well, it isn't doubful, but definite) that the home originally had LP - Louisiana Pacific siding on it: the so called "first generation" LP siding, which was involved in liti...
