The rooms and living room have wooden cupboards so I'd love to have an antique flooring which can…Continue

Been thinking about using glass backsplashes in my kitchen.Glass provides an attractive and cost-effective alternative to tile and other backsplashes. With minimal seams, it is much easier to clean than tiles.But I heard so many people saying, it'll crack easily. If the glass is being installed near a heat source, it'll eventually crack when exposed to the heating element. So I don't know how long it's gonna last in the kitchen.When I called a nearby…Continue

Hey guys,I'm from Richmond Hill and I'm living with my wife and kids.Bought a new house and we're planning to shift very soon.

So it's not spacious enough to accommodate all the stuff we have.We tried different patterns to organize the new house. We even went to the house and checked.

I'm planning to upgrade my electrical panel to 200 amp. The house is too old, I mean around 25-30 years old. So, I think it's high to upgrade the panel to avoid electrical accidents.When asked about the panel upgrade people are saying different things. Some say that if we pick the panel, the building must be brought up to code with a new build. But some guys are saying it isn't a problem because it's a really old house.Most of our rooms are about 10x10. Currently, we have two outlets. Is it ok,…Continue

Hey, at last, we are moving to a rented home. To find a fund for buying a new home we sold our apartment.

I have to move our household appliances. Then we have a garage full of gym equipment. In the beginning, we were planning to hire a container truck but dropped the plan due to some inconvenience(We won't get any…Continue
