  "I'm not sure where it is now, Mr. Holmes, but I'm sure it was there when the house was built." Not that type of pipe of course, but the type of pipe that exits your home via the rooftop:  a plumbing vent.  When I first saw this "little" concern on a steep, six year old, Cape Cod style home's r...
  Check out these pictures of some wild & wacky staircases, or at least I think that's what most of them are.  It can be safe to assume that these properties are not habited by small children or the elderly, wouldn't you agree?  Me and my wife/business partner/boss especially like the plant/tree/...

Stalactites??? Huh???? Before you read on do you remember which are which?  Do stalactites hang or do they point upwards?  Which are stalagmites?  Don't cheat..... just how good was your science teacher??   O.k. stalactites are the ones that hang.  Did you get it right?  I know you didn't scroll ...

Anyway, I saw this light switc...
