Remodeling an entire bathroom is very intimidating to me. A shiver runs down my spine when I think about plumbing, tiling and wiring all at once. I need a handy little guide to avoid backing down from such a project. If you are like me, then take a look at this beginner’s guide entitled “10 Steps to a New Bathroom”. It takes you through each stage of the process. On our site, there are detailed videos on more specific jobs in a bathroom. Our Step by Step How To videos include everything from installing a showerhead to replacing a toilet. Even if you only need a few tips here and there, our database has helpful hints that even the most die-hard do-it-yourselfers have not heard before.
We here in the Northeast love our oil heat. And with the cost of it to jump an estimated 30 percent this winter, many of us are looking for ways to cut costs. One way, according to this article from FurnaceCompare.com is to join a fuel buyers cooperative. These groups "combine their buying power to negotiate lower prices with heating oil dealers" to cut the cost by about 10 to 20 percent. Sounds good to me. The site includes a list of existing fuel co-ops homeowners can join in various areas and also instructions on starting your own.
