Don’t ask, don’t tell: radon gas in Canada

Written by Diane Kelsall (MD MEd), it calls sharp attention to the fact that Canadian lawmakers have done well to protect Canadians from harm by way of seat belt laws (saving estimated 1,000 lives a year) and smoke alarms (reducing fire related deaths to somewhere near 40 per million households a year) yet have been lax in regulating protection from radon gas, a proven carcinogen that causes thousands of death each year. I supposed it’s sort of like the home owners and business owners I have met who say they don’t want to test for radon, because if the test comes back saying there are high levels present that means they have to do something about it.

Five years ago I built a little greenhouse outside my basement door and thousands of mostly happy little plants have been grown in it since then.

The chronicle of the project is here. I had to make it narrow to fit the available space and that has always been a problem, principally because the widest door I could fit into it was 22 inches wide — not good for getting any bulky items in and out of the basement. Also, I had added a sort of bump-out on the side of it to get more room, which it did, but that bumped up the ugly factor a little more than I could stand. I’m no longer growing flowers for the local farmers’ market, so I don’t need as much room as I did. Hypertufa: ideas para usar este material - Página 9. Untitled. Сад.

We positioned it next to the refrigerator and walk-in pantry and it’s turned out to be a good location, with quick easy access to the half & half and skim milk. For the recessed shelf, I decided to use marble in lieu of maple like the cabinets, and had a 2″ mitered edge added to match all the counters.

Shades of Gray: How to Use Vinegar & Steel Wool to Darken a Floor - Hardwood Floors Magazine. A few years ago, we had a situation where a reclaimed floor had to be repaired in a hurry, but it was going to take six weeks for us to get the same reclaimed flooring, which was a red oak and white oak unfinished product.

The customer couldn't wait that long, so we had to be more creative. We were able replicate the same appearance of the reclaimed floor with new wood flooring by using an old-school method: a vinegar and steel wool solution. This solution is often referred to in our trade as "iron acetate," although from a chemistry perspective, a true iron acetate would need to be more refined. Whatever you call it, the solution has a chemical reaction with the tannins in wood. Yvette C on Pinterest. How to Restring a Top Down - Bottom Up Cellular Honeycomb Shade (Hunter Douglas)
