    "Not only does television in the bedroom keep us up later at night, but there are also studies that indicate watching television before bed actually disrupts sleep cycles. Removing the television from your bedroom results in more sleep and better sleep… which means you'll have a better rested, more productive day."

  • What should I do before lighting the fireplace the first time?

    Best answer: have no idea when this one was last used. Chances are it has not been used for awhile if the fireplace is cleaned out of charcoal and ash. Then there is a knob above the fireplace opening if you pull on the knob a long shaft of steel comes out maybe a foot. If you stick your head into the fireplace and look up... show more
    Best answer: have no idea when this one was last used. Chances are it has not been used for awhile if the fireplace is cleaned out of charcoal and ash. Then there is a knob above the fireplace opening if you pull on the knob a long shaft of steel comes out maybe a foot. If you stick your head into the fireplace and look up you should see daylight from the top of the chimney. This is how the smoke goes up. So the DAMPER MUST BE OPEN when you have a fire going. When the rod is in. the damper(which is like a steel door) is closed. This does not allow cold air to enter the house by going down the chimney.

    WE who do not make many fires use a lot of old newspapers to get the fire going as we also have very little on small dry sticks(kindling). Fire is a progression thing.
    First you should have a log holder grate...which is made of heavy metal so the logs do not lay on the floor of the fireplace hearth. This will allow air to get under the fire to feed it. It is the preferred method.
    So open the damper first.
    And then build the fire stack starting with several sheets of crumpled up newspaper, then lean stick against the paper ball like ///\\\\\ all around the ball which is all on the grating. And then increase the size of the kindling to larger sticks that lean against the paper.
    Now light a match and light the paper. Everything is automatic . Paper lights the small sticks and the small sticks burn long enough to light the bigger sticks and so on. You may need to open a window a bit or leave the front door open a bit until the fire gets going and sends the smoke only up the chimney. Some houses are so air tight that the fire cannot be fed by the air in the house, it needs more. The older homes were leaky so plenty of air got in from the outside...past window and door cracks. The more air tight homes are air tight so you needed a separate feeder pipe that took air from the outside and went into the fireplace to feed the fire. While having the front door open a bit seems to defeat the purpose of heating the home effectively, yes that is true but it kept the smoke going UP the Chimney instead of air being drawn down the chimney to feed the fire...and smoke out the house. If you don't have a feeder pipe you will ask at a building supply store for examples and how they work with pictures.
    So long as there is a fire going the damper is OPEN. The fire must be dead out cold before you close the damper, even then leave it open a bit...just in case.

    Never use gasoline to start a fire in the fireplace. It is NOT SAFE. Do not burn garbage in the fireplace. Plastics and such just stink up the house. Burn only wood or paper. I have not seen coal being used so would not recommend it either.
    . At the end of a fire you are left with blacken charcoal(pieces of wood that have not finished burning yet to turn to grey ash. So for the next time you have a fire the black pieces can be added in like chunks of wood. Basically they are left in the fireplace and the grey ash is shoveled out. Then you build the fire like you did the first time using paper ball and some kindling and then larger sticks and the black stuff will ignite on its own where it lies and finish the burning process to ashes...as the fire is burning. Some houses keep the fire going 24/7 during the cold periods. Just tossing in another log when the fire is running out of fuel to burn. In front of the fireplace should be a wire screen as some of the crackling wood sends out flaming shards that if it lands in the room carpet, burns the house down. Every owner takes "their fireplace stuff with them so it is something you have to buy" They would have taken the log grate and fireplace tools as well as they are not part of the house. So you have to invest in these items. Home Depot or another store has this stuff. Having an axe or hatchet or both is also something you will need.

  • Should I repaint my bed or buy a new one?

    Best answer: It's your money, spend it how you want to. At this age, your bed will most likely move with you when you leave your parents' home as an adult. So, choose wisely when purchasing a new bed.

    I am about to paint the exterior of my home. I currently have redwood clapboard siding which was previous stained with a semi transparent Cabot stain. So there is not any chipping paint to sand. I need advise on good house paint and whether or not priming is needed and if there is a good exterior paint that already has built in primers. Built in primers never made any sense to me, but I see they are available in other paints and wonder if I can get that option in exterior paint. Also, is it better to brush or spray in my circumstances? Thank you kindly for your input and advise.

  • Buying Vinyl Tile That is not Water Resistant?

    Best answer: Vinyl is water resistant, meaning it can get wet but not be flooded and be subjected to standing water.

No floor is waterproof from floods because the underlayment is what absorbs the water, causing any and all flooring to fail under flood conditions. Unless you have a painted concrete floor. The only way to prevent your floor from flooding in those areas is to waterproof from the outside so that water does not come in.
