I want to replace a 6' slider with a glass pane door and windows, but need ideas. The room is a bedroom, and has no windows. The only way to get fresh air is to open the door. Help!

Take a look at the french door with sidelights in this photo. You can get this done so that the side windows open and have screens on them. This might work for you.

scoutstella, that's probably what I should do, although most kits don't come with the pressure regulator, timer, or filter. All essential to really use the system effectively. Those items will at least double if not triple your initial investment.

Well, we had a "professional" landscape gardener put our drip hoses in and they fell apart by the second year, now she want to just put in a overground hose with a sprinkler, I feel like she doesn't know what she doing--you guys here make it seem so much simpler than she has, should I get rid of her?

Undoubtedly so!

But, like houses, one person's dream may hold no appeal to the next person who comes along.

I've built wine cellars the size of bedrooms with elaborate cabinetry and chilling systems for wine enthusiasts, $100k kitchens for cooking nuts, $300k backyard makeovers for folks who like to entertain outdoors. These individuals considered these features to be "critical" to their enjoyment of the home.

To most of the people who would be interested in an elaborate garage, features like those above might be considered "ok" if they were already in place when they bought the house, but certainly not warrant the expense of adding them after the fact. But, to someone who's interests like in areas typically associated with a garage, having adequate space to enjoy your hobby is very important.

Frequently these interests also tend to be gender specific. From the feminine perspective it "just a garage, what's the big deal"? But to the guys, it's their place to escape, pursue their passions, entertain their buddies.

And as in all other areas of living space, careful planning can make a huge difference in the enjoyment level after the money is spent. Those few extra feet those guidelines add may make 10% difference in the cost of the structure - and 100% difference in the enjoyment level of the user.

Thank you Pataya, do not let the picture fool you this is a 10 foot high basement wall, way below frost after backfill. The crushed stone would defeat having the two separate ways to drain as the water would cross over, we pour footers right on the compacted earth, my plant though on slab also has footers and poured walls that are 42 inches as well for frost. The PVC drain form has saw cut slots on the outsides for draining and yes it does simplify the process some, check out this YouTube video, they also talk about how this system can be used for Radon mitigation too. have a good day, I am getting married at 4:00 so will be out of pocket today : )

All footings should be poured on terra firma (undisturbed soil) regardless of region unless it is engineered fill. Forma - drain pretty standard here. Good stuff. On the other hand some things are pretty regional - we use directional boring here a lot but I wouldn't try it most places in Missouri or Arkansas.
