Second speed queen. But it won’t be in budget.
Any tips for replacing a recessed lighting that is covered in insulation. Guess mask and making a mess is all you can do?
Basically my recessed lighting in one of the bathrooms is tripping a breaker, it only trips the breaker if a light bulb is in and you flip the switch. It has to be a bad wiring or soemthing right?
Check to see if a live wire is touching the ground wire behind the outlet.
The outlet on the recessed lighting right? Not the light switch?
That’s what I meant. Behind the switch.
Not the switch, doesn't trip it if bulb isn't in and I flip the switch. Only when bulb is in socket and switch is flipped, unless it's when it comes back‽
If the bulb isn't in it, the electricity isnt flowing
Consider yourself lucky. The best we can do is a mobile AT&T hotspot.
Yeah not the switch, just tried it. So my guess is bad wiring at the junction box and recessed lighting can, socket/heat sensor is messed up. Socket and heat sensor are about 10 bucks online and easier to test.
Damn. Ts & Ps
what do you mean by tried it? did you pull the switch out and make sure there wasn't a live wire touching the ground wire?
Cable, DSL, water, and natural gas are about a mile away in either direction, and we have to pay to get any of them run to us. So close...
Hot damn, I fixed. It was fucking wired wrong.
Hwhat in the hfuck is happening there?
Looks to me like the neutral is wired to the ground
Yeah, very strange setup that looks incorrect.
No clue how it just started shorting, but once I connected ground to ground, white to white and black to black it worked flawlessly. I'm pretty proud of myself,but holy fuck at that insulation I was covered in
I could ask you the same question. Are you having a stroke?
The house came with LED daylight fucking nuclear light bulbs. I’ve swapped out all the bulbs to soft light but they installed flushmount LED daylight fixtures on several ceilings. Can I make it softer without replacing the entire fixture?
That daylight shit makes you feel like you’re in a hospital or some sterile environment. I guess they thought it would make the house present better when selling, or they bought them because they were on sale because no one wants them and they’re fucking awful.
Question for any mortgage experts out there...We were supposed to close on the sale of our house on Aug 1 but the buyer had to push it back to today (Aug 2). We just noticed that yesterday out mortgage came out of our account for August. Is this correct? The amount we got at closing did not change at all from what we were quoted last week (when it was supposed to be Aug 1) but now were out an extra $1,600. I texted my agent but he hasn’t gotten back to me yet.
Do we still pay for August even though we no longer live there? And was that triggered by moving closing back a day?
Forgive me if these are dumb questions because I really have no idea how this all works.
Probably means there is no other ground to that box in the picture
Which is probably typical in residential, I'm guessing when you put the bulb in it rotated the fixture just enough that the bare copper ground wire came in contact with the box and the opposite when you unscrewed the bulb
Let the title company know to get a new payoff amount and make sure it’s correct on the closing statement.
then call the mortgage holder and request a refund for overpayment on interest
Anyone screened in a patio recently? Looking for ballpark estimates on screening on our new 30x8 patio.
Don’t do that.
Don’t listen to these fkbois you do what you want
Wait, are people against screens?
Very few do it in Texas and when they do it’s to be more of a sun screen
My sister has a screened-in covered porch in DFW and it’s pretty fucking awesome.
I thought mortgage payments didn’t start until the following month usually. Plus it doesn’t make sense for the bank to be pulling money out of your account for a mortgage on a property that hasn’t been closed.
He’s selling not buying
His use of “sale” instead of “sell” threw me off.
I see this commonly and it always weirds me out. People going to “garage sells”
With the bugs in Florida, it’s a must certain times of the year.
Got my vanity for the master bathroom in yesterday and installing floors in the living room, kitchen, and bedrooms this weekend.
Enjoy that 2G connection speed.
Had Lowe's deliver my flooring and vanity out yesterday and the Lowe's delivery guy was kind enough to take a piss in my non functioning toilet for me, so that was nice.
The closing transaction doesn't account for you having auto-pay setup. Reach out to your former mortgage company & you should be issued a refund for the payment, if a new payoff wasn't ordered to account for your latest payment
Same thing happened when I bought my last truck. I traded the day before my next payment and it was already in process. Bank sent me a check back since the deal was on the old payoff amount.
Put old house on market yesterday, just signed agreement for $2500 less than asking price
P sure I priced way too low but no regrets this shit is finally over*
*pending inspection Ts & Ps appreciated
About to screen ours in. Similar size of 30x10. We did a slanted enclosure with 16” kickplates and one exit door. Got quotes from $4700 to $7,000. Ended up getting one of the higher quotes companies to come down to just under $5,000.
Just got done grilling my first steak in over a year. Feels so good to be able to grill on a patio again and out of the apartment. It’s the little things.
Nice, good to know. I’m hoping ours will be a little less because we have six foot privacy walls on both sides, so they’d only need to screen a few feet on the sides (from the top of the privacy wall to the roof line. Roof line extends the depth of the lanai, so most of what we need is just the front panels.
