My wife and I have just purchased our first house- a ranch style home that is 24 years old. In pretty good shape, just needs updating and TLC. I have questions on several topics and would appreciate some advice. First, we are remodeling the kitchen- new floors and cabinets. We plan to install ceramic tile. Should it be installed before the cabinets or after? Also have a question on the ceiling. I don't see any water spots, but it is textured and has some discoloration after two decades. Can we just paint over the texture to refresh the looks of it? Last question for now- we live in eastern Kansas and have a lot of variability in climate. The crawlspace under the house is kind of a mess. First, all of the insulation up against the subfloor is falling off. It is not very tall, only 14 to 20 inches, and has no vapor barrier. Should I install vapor barrier, ventilate the crawlspace and insulate all heat/ac ducts and water lines plus reinstall under the subfloor, or just seal it up good and try to keep it dry? Any input will be greatly appreciated- thanks!!
