Stair Tread for Carpet

Hello, I was wondering when framing stairs that you know will have carpet on them, should you just go with 3/4 plywood and flush the tread with the riser? In the past I used stair treads with a bullnose front and let them over hang the riser a little, but they were later stained. In this case, I was...

Re: matching floor furnace patch to existing hardwood

I'll be starting on this tomorrow and was curious if you by any chance had any designs in mind that would look good for this project, and what kind of wood for the floor would you recommend? Thanks.

Re: Storage shelves

Thank you for the quick reply, Shannon. I was curious, sense I have a nail gun that would make the project go a little quicker, if 3" nails would be able to hold as much of the weight as 3" screws? As for fastening the OSB, I have 2-3/8" nails already, but I can get the 1-1/2" screws, just wasn't su...

Re: Storage shelves

Thanks for the drawing, Shannon. Just curious, how far apart would you recommended any center cross pieces to be in order to prevent any sagging over time? And as for hardware would you recommended nails, screws, bolts, etc.?

Storage shelves

Hey house-improvements, I was wondering how you would go about building strong storage shelves for a garage or basement? It would mostly be used to hold storage tubs, tools, plumbing equipment, lumber, hardware, and any other general home improvement items. I was thinking 2 feet wide over a span of ...

Re: matching floor furnace patch to existing hardwood

Thank you both for the quick replies. On a previous house that I did this in, both of the suggested ideas were taken into consideration and I finally decided on the decorative look. Although I did think using the planks in the closet would probably be the best solution, my concern was running the ri...

Re: matching floor furnace patch to existing hardwood

Hm, I don't really know another term for a floor furnace, but they were popular in the 50's and were usually in the center of the house. Removing it has consequently left me with a 24"x42 1/2" rectangle in my hallway that I need to patch, but I'd like the patch to not look like a patch but rather ma...

matching floor furnace patch to existing hardwood

Hey House-Improvements, We replaced the floor furnace with central heat and air and now there's a hole in the floor that leads to the crawl space. Patching the furnace hole isn't the issue for me, but figuring out a way to not have the patch stick out like a soar thumb is. The house has hardwood flo...
