Finally got around to doing that bathroom floor. I pulled the old floor up, put the decoupling mat down, the heat cable, installed and wired the thermostat, put in about half the tile -- and then decided at the last minute that I should add a second in-floor thermostat lead just in case. Will have to wait a couple days for it to be delivered. Cut all the rest of the tile already, though, so it's ready to roll as soon as the thermostat gets here. I have a good wet saw for...
I have an electrolux canister vac that cost an arm and a leg (we just had to have one because so-and-so had one) and those little cordless hoovers actually do a better job of pulling dirt out of rugs. They don't filter as well as the HEPA obviously but the canister mostly sits in the closet these days.
I don't recall there being massive dust storms when I lived in Atlanta but that's climate change I guess. You could always do like I did and buy a couple and stash them around the house.
I'd just reiterate how much I like these cordless, battery-powered stick vacuums. http://www.amazon.com/Hoover-Cordless-Vacuum-Cleaner-BH50010/dp/B001PB8EJ2/
Two of my neighbors resodded their yards with Zoysia this last year. It does look nice, but I wouldn't prefer it to St. Augustine, especially if you have a shady yard. I prefer St. Augustine because it stays green much longer than other grasses in the fall. In my somewhat limited experience it's also more disease tolerant than the centipede most people (including me) have for most of their yards. I am sick and tired of dead patches in the spring from fall fungus or extreme...
Best advice I can give would be to watch several youtube videos and use your common sense to decide who's giving the best advice. Read the comments. I've never found a good all-in-one source for that kind of thing. The guides published by magazines are mostly useless.

I have a fair number of Hitachi tools and they're all great, so I'm sure it'll be fine. They're probably all made in the same Chinese factory anyway.
If it's the C12FDH, watch out, there are a lot of bad reviews on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Hitachi-C12FDH-12-Inch-Bevel-Miter/dp/B000E7YQ40
You replace the Rs with random numbers. Kind of a grey area but they've been doing it for years and years without Lowes ever complaining.http://slickdeals.net/f/7071014-lowes-com-coupon-code-for-20-off-100-10-off-or-10-off-50-25-off-250A 12" is larger and significantly heavier, but there's a very real increase in cutting capacity. I prefer the accuracy of a fixed 12" over something like a sliding 10". The sliding saws have a very large footprint too.I would figure out the...
