          This is a TRIM kit, not a complete tub and shower faucet assembly! The valve must be purchased separately, keep this in mind if you’re considering this item. That being said, this kit contains all other pieces necessary for installation…shower head, shower arm, all trim plates, gaskets, handles, screws and gaskets are included. The fit and finish is perfect!

          The 3-in-1 versatility of the Spectra Versa Shower System from American Standard allows everyone in the family to enjoy a truly personalized shower. Indulge in the drenching spray of the 11 Rain showerhead and the 4-function hand shower, individually or simultaneously, easily switching between both with the push-button diverter. Designed for hassle-free installation using existing plumbing, Spectra Versa eliminates the need to drill or damage tile, transforming an ordinary shower in an extraordinary spa experience in just 30 minutes. Color: Brushed Nickel.

          This installs in the existing shower head fitting, simply unscrew the old shower head extension and screw in the included adapter. It comes with a stick on bottom attachment on the shower wall, but I chose the screw attachment option for some added security.. The shower head is great with four different sprays patterns. The shower head nozzles are rubber and easily wiped clean. The hand held head has four sprays with a toggle switch for one hand operation. The push button diverter works perfectly. It is an easy job to install this assembly, and everything down to the screws is included.

          The Merola Tile Lustre Beveled Antique Mirror 3 in. x 6 in. Glass Wall Tile is the perfect unique addition to your home. Featuring a mirrored front surface, this piece is great for reflecting light and color from throughout the room. The beveled front helps to add more dimension and interest to this already intriguing piece. The random brown and taupe patterns throughout help give some color to this mirrored piece. This piece is great for use on walls in bedrooms, bathrooms, backsplashes and as accents to other products. Color: Antique Mirror / High Sheen.

          We had been looking for an antique mirror to use over our new mantle and found these. They have an antique look due to the beveled edges and slight amber tint and were perfect for what we wanted. We had to cut some of them and our tile wet saw with a diamond blade worked great. It did leave a sharp edge that a pass with emery cloth cleaned up nicely. We used a construction adhesive to mount them with good results.

          This cover is for a 25 amp single outlet. The cover fits snugly and has an excellent finish. It is for interior use only, there is no protection from weather for use outdoors. As with all electrical products, be sure the power is off before doing any work, and be sure to follow all local and state electrical codes. If you are not comfortable working with electricity, consult a professional.

          What does the "80 in." mean? Is that how much wire it has?

          Veneered construction gives these decorative PureBond Birch Plywood Project Panels the strength, flatness and rigidity to satisfy the most discerning craftsman. Each 5-ply sheet is assembled with a soy-based PureBond technology to fortify its structural integrity, with the added benefit of being formaldehyde-free so it will not off-gas toxic fumes over time as UF-constructed plywood is known to do. The decorative veneers are precision-cut from domestically grown, sustainably harvested birch trees, producing visually alluring wood grains on the face and back of the panel that exhibit the warmth, beauty and timeless quality of natural hardwood. Featuring real timber throughout, the core veneer consists of natural yellow poplar substrate laid in alternating cross bands for utmost stability and ruggedness. It's a cost-competitive alternative to urea formaldehyde-laden plywood and will not contribute to air-quality degradation like composite panels. For extraordinary results on your next carpentry or woodworking project, add this 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. panel to your arsenal for construction of cabinets, entertainment centers, wall panels, coffee tables, bookcases, toy chests, benches, desks, shelves and more. The decorative veneers have a smooth finish that allows painting or staining to make it uniquely yours.

          Several reviews seem to indicate that the spray wand "docks" with the stem -- is this true, and if so, is it mechanical or magnetic?

          Also, will this be offered in a faucet/sink combo package? I've been considering the Model # KHU101-23-1630-42SS combo offered through Home Depot, but I've been concerned that the 1630-42SS faucet doesn't seem to offer a docking mechanism...
