          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?

          Answer: 
          Hi,
          Yes you still need to leave the gap. You want to put in 100% waterproof clear silcone between the gap and the tub, like Tap Silicone Max 10.1 oz. Clear 100% Premium Kitchen and Bath Silicone Sealant (model: #08668). I would then install the Zamma Starry Light 5/8 in. Thick x 3/4 in. Wide x 94 in. Length Vinyl Quarter Round Molding (Model # 015143850) to cover the gap and finish it off.

          Yes you could mount it upside down. However, when you look up you will see the LEDs which is not visually appealing. Also, I don't think it will provide enough light for that type of installation.
