Just wondering if it would be cheaper / easier / faster to ask one company to do everything or to out source the work to multiple companies? (DIY isn't an option).

    I m in the middle of getting my house painted. Well it s the kitchen, hallway and sitting room as well as getting 6 doors and skirting painted. The painter originally told me it would take 2 weeks and at €15 an hour. I ve already paid him 1500 which included the paint. However I ve now been told it will take another 2.5 weeks to finish the sitting room and 6 doors. While I know painting wood work takes time, it has already taken him nearly 2 weeks to paint the kitchen and hallway and prime two doors. If he continues it will cost at least another 1800... is this very expensive?

  • How to cool room down? (UK, no AC)?

    Best answer: Have you tried propping the bedroom doors open as well as opening the windows to get a draught going? You might have to sacrifice some privacy to clear the hot air.

    Best answer: Have you tried propping the bedroom doors open as well as opening the windows to get a draught going? You might have to sacrifice some privacy to clear the hot air.

    If you have sliding sash windows you can get box fans (try argos) and set them up to make a draught by clamping them in the window. On the cooler side of the house set the fan up to draw air in whilst on the warmer set the other fan the other way round to push air out. It's pretty effective.

    As the heat is projected to last you could just decamp to downstairs for the rest of the summer. When I was little I lived in a very hot a humid part of the states due to my father's job. Every summer there'd be blackouts as the demand for electricity overwhelmed the grid. One year they lasted a long time and the house just got too hot to sleep upstairs, so we decamped downstairs to the shady side of the house where it was much cooler and treated it as an adventure.

  • Friend left me with loads of junk when he left.?

    Best answer: You need to tell this man that unless he collects all his stuff in the next week (no longer than that) you'll donate it to charity. You want everything out of your house and you don't care what happens to his stuff. Tell him this and mean. If he really wants the bean bag, he'll find a way to collect it.

  • Is 135K a good price for a kitchen remodel and adding a master bathroom?

    This is the price I was given from my design / Contractor company. It’s a very reputable company and I know they do quality work. Another, smaller company quoted me 90k for the same projdct. I think the first company will do better work but is this price sky high?

  • Should all my bedroom furniture match?

    Best answer: Many people are happy decorating with eclectic, or mixed, style. If you worry about it being all matchy, that is a total '50s old school notion. Bought into by people who paid too much attention to magazine ads.

    Recently I had an incident in my apartment. A guy hit the wall with his truck and I had to replace some side wood studs and a window. The window did not broke, but it was not straight, so it had to be replaced. I did not get a permit from the city because it was just a replacement, there was no electrical or plumbing work involved. But now, code enforcement department is requiring me to provide plans and a building permit by a licensed professional. After 4 weeks of requesting the plans I finally have them with me, but the problem is that not a single contractor that I have called wants to get the permit for me. I called code enforcement to request an extension, but it expired and they are increasing the penalty fee. What can I do if no contractor wants to help me? Update: insurance paid me for labor, material and inspection right after everything was completed. Now I have to pay for the plans, permit and any additional cost out of my pocket. This is in the City of Las Vegas, Nevada. Thank you
