          A gentle curve and slight flare characterize the clean, modern design of this Single-Handle 3-Setting Diverter Trim in Stainless. Getting ready in the morning is far from routine when you are surrounded by a bath that reflects your personal style. The shower becomes your private sanctuary where body sprays and showerheads work in perfect harmony.

          I am building my dream custom shower and have had great experience with Delta valves, so I looked at their trim kits.  The trim kit is extremely well made, The handle is solid metal and swivels smoothly. The installation instructions are super easy to follow with clear illustrations.  The quality of the trim kit assures you of years of hassle free usage. 
          Pros: Easy to Install, Good Instructions

          I got this to blower to get rid of the leaves on my pool cover in the winter. I was using my brother's Ryobi and I think that one is a little bit more powerful. I put this blower on full and it cleared the majority of the leaves. It is lightweight even with the large flexvolt battery installed.

          The Milwaukee ANSI Type R Class 2 High Visibility Performance Safety Vest is designed to carry more. The high visibility safety vest has 15 pockets including a clear ID holder, rear tablet pocket, and 3 internal pockets, equipping users with added storage. All front pockets are reinforced with durable 600D tear resistant materials capable of withstanding rough job site conditions. To reduce pressure around the neck, comfortable padding was incorporated around the collar. The safety vest features a quick internal size adjustment providing users with a better fit as well as a durable pass-through slit for fall protection gear. This allows users to wear the same vest in the summer over a t-shirt or in the winter over a jacket. Additionally, a zipper closure on the safety vest provides users with ultimate job site security. The high visibility reflective vests are required if users are working around traffic going 25 mph or working around heavy machinery. This includes construction, road construction, traffic direction, utility crews, and survey crews. Yellow and orange color options are available, as well as CSA compliant safety vests. Size: medium. Gender: unisex. Age Group: adult.

          I got this for my husband who is an avid DIYer.  Though he has tool belts, small items always get lost and not easily accessible.  The pockets on this vest is perfect for him.  He can put in small levels, pencils, drill bits, and his phone and be assured that he will have what he needs at his fingertips.   My husband is 6' and I took a picture of him wearing it and with an Ipad in the back pocket.  I knocked off a star because the vest is 'short' in the torso length - it is only 25" from neck to waist. It should be at least 2" longer.
          Pros: Durable, High Quality, Lots of Features
          Cons: too short in length

          Grohe makes sleek modern faucets that are well made and this faucet is no exception.  First, there is NO plastic parts in this faucet.The toggle on the head is solid metal, so you know it will last for years.  It has an ingenious button on the top of the head that stops the spray which is perfect to fill up the coffee maker.  The faucet goes smoothly back into place without the annoying weight on the house.  Highly recommend.
          Pros: Easy to Use, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design

          I usually buy Grohe or Kohler for my shower systems because of their quality.  I fell in love with the Grohe Euphoriashower faucets so I needed a trim kit. I really like the look of Grohe trim kits - very sleek and modern.  The trim kit is extremely heavy and well made.  It might seem expensive, but the quality makes it a great buy. I plan on getting the Grohe IBox Universal rough in valve (Model # 01850181).

          I am trying to figure out what size mirrors to get and I was wondering how wide is the 2 door cabinet area that has the sink? Should I assume 24" for the sinks with a 12" drawer?

          Artscape window films create the look of stained and etched glass. These thin, translucent films provide privacy while still allowing natural light to enter the room. Artscape films are easily applied to any smooth glass surface. They do not use adhesives and are easily removed if needed. They can be trimmed or combined to fit any size window. The images have a repeating pattern left to right and top to bottom and can be used either vertically or horizontally. These films provide UV protection and are the perfect decorative accent for windows that require continued privacy.

          Island Install, top flanges

          Asked by
          Mike
          June 21, 2016
          I see the range has flanges on either side of the unit for a finished "built-in" look. Do those flanges go around the back (where the vent is)? How is the back edge finished? Does it butt to the counter, require a small gap, sit above the counter, etc…?

          I want to avoid having a gap visible on the backside of the range in the island. The GE Profile slide-in range has a flange on three sides, with a built-in vent cover at the back. It looks like a drop-in cooktop, look I want.

          Answer: 
          The flange does go all the around. We had our quartz installer/manufacturer actually make a cut out for the stove to slide in as we wanted the quartz between the wall. I don't know what type of material you are going to have on your island, but you could do the same thing to avoid the gap.

Two sets of double doors, one right and one left, and three middle drawers are equipped with black birdcage-style handles that produce a vintage appearance. The vanity's solid, seamless construction gives homeowners and contractors the sense that it is custom-built, while the generous storage space within accepts bathroom accessories aplenty. Cap this furniture-style bathroom vanity with a top-sink-faucet combination that ties the room together. Browse the Foremost Naples lineup for mirrors and wall-linen cabinets in the same cinnamon finish for a complete look.
