@yellowfinch030. Not sure why that last commented posted here, it was intended for a different discussion. But since it did, these are essentially one box (6" deep with a plywood bottom and drain holes) sitting on top of a box built with 2x12" lumber. I've been able to grow almost any vegetable I've tried, other than carrots and corn.

Forgot to add, the airspace in the lower box allows soil in the upper box to warm earlier in the year and keeps out creeping weeds, airborne weeds are still a problem.

What will people want from my attic in 50 years?
That is the question. To save or not to save?
Most of my kids are not as sentimental as I am. But I also realize that much can go out when I go out because it means something to me and not to them. Just one example: two boxes of dress-up clothes, many of them things we sewed in the 60s and 70s that no one would be caught dead in. They bring back memories to me, but to my kids, they are just dress-up clothes. So when I'm gone (or maybe before), they can dispose of them with no guilt. They'll never bring in money, like BLee's 1930s magazines, so don't keep them unless you can use them.

This comment is so very true! We have an attic full of "maybe they will use it/want it/etc."
We are down-sizing and out it goes.

We just had the old, original 90amp. furnace replaced with a 15amp. furnace and a heat pump.

The installer suggested we not use the expensive (DENSE) furnace filters that need to be changed only every six months. He said the "cheaper" (LESS DENSE) filters actually work better; they just need to be changed more often. Has to do with circulation.

To anyone saying they lose space by using under mount concealed slides, I say they are using side mount units and have yet to join us in the 21st century.

How to Get the Closet of Your Dreams

Do you cringe every time you open your closet door? It may be time for a makeover Full Story

@Jennifer Matherne. An other option might be a system that utilizes rails. You attach one rail to the wall and everything hangs off that rail. When you move, lift the sections off the rail, unscrew the rail and patch the screw holes (one per wall stud). The one we have we purchased at Costo twenty years ago for less than $100.
It is seven feet long and made of melamine. The only problem we've had was a broken rod end, that the company replaced at no cost. It was made by Laminations,Inc. of Holland Michigan. I have to say this was purchased as a temporary fix but has held up so well there has been no need to replace it. When the closet it is in becomes part of the bathroom next year, I plan on moving it to another closet and getting another 20 years of use from it.

Katelyn1953, the system you are describing sounds very much like the ELFA system I just used in my walk-in & am about to use in my Garage. I have also used it to support the bookshelves in my Bedroom, which are beautifully finished solid timber from my late Father.
Easy to install, adjustible, modular & removeable.
Re the IKEA discussion : My next project after the garage is a small kitchen, where I plan to use IKEA. I have done so twice before & been pleased with the results. They also help with the design if you need help. This time I am planning more "back-saving" features, as age & injury is catching up with me. So we'll see how they meet that challenge.
Thanks for everyone's input. It is always helpful. Enjoy.

These were gorgeous baths, but I always wonder, as are a couple of these, why would any one spend this amount of money on a beautiful bath, and leave the toilet open? I have gotten so use to water closets, that I cringe when I see a toilet in the corner of the bathroom. Unfortunately, my present house, does not have a water closet either, so I "cringe" each time I use it.

We live in an older home without A/C, so we leave our windows open at night to cool off. Since our bedroom has five! doors, furniture tends to be under the double hung windows, making them difficult to access to open and close. The room with the bed in the middle of the windows made me think of that.

I solved the small-bedroom problem in my 100-year-plus central-stair colonial by hunting down an antique 3/4 spool bed. Love it!
