    Perhaps I'm missing something.... what's the point of a lock on a screen?
    Because if you've got a cat as big and smart as one of ours, they'll just let themselves out. The locks on our screen doors keeps Larry in, leave it unlocked and he's out.

    This looks fantastic! nice work.

    What did you use for the countertops? I'd like to freshen ours up...

    Also, did you just paint the back splash or complete re-tile?
    Countertops were done with rustoleum countertop transformation, one tip, tape up the supplied rollers and then remove tape. Do this a couple times and it will help to de-lint the rollers.

    Backsplash is the stick on tiles. $140 for the entire thing and I did it in 2 hours. I've had success at our last house with the same product lasting 5+ years before we moved.

    It's not a lock with a key, it's just a hinge on the latch so that the screen actually stays put.

    Any chance you can take a close up photo of the countertop? I’m super intrigued

    Dryer broke on Saturday. Had a night reserved in Banff, so fixed it today. Took it apart, the belt was broken. Also decided to check the rest of the dryer, so I took out the drum. Turns out the idler roller was also broken. Got new parts at Amre for cheap. Now works like new. Yippee.

    Picked up a used ATV and a chain. Dragged a bunch of wood out of my forest. Split it. Built a small wood shack to keep it dry. Am going to finish adding walls and put a tarp over the front with hooks.

    Drained the hot water tank in an effort to remove some sediment. Not sure how successful that was, but it shut off water to my dishwasher because of my "floodsafe auto shutoff connector". Had to reset that and everything works good now.

    Hey I've been meaning to do that with my tank, as it's never been done and the thing's over 10yrs old now. Anything in particular to know? Shut off water, empty overflow valve, water for hot water and goop to come out the hose?

    You can run into issues where sediment blocks the valve from re-seating after this and leaking.
    Not saying it will, saying it can.

    I think the procedure is this:
    - turn gas to pilot
    - close water inlet valve
    - open a hot water tap on your top floor
    - open drain valve
    - fill and drain tank as many times as you want.
    Once happy, close drain valve, open fill valve, turn gas back to "on", close hot water tap on upper floor.


    If any of your appliances don't get water afterwards, you may have the same flood prevention hose I did. Shut off, disconnect, reconnect, turn back on slowly.
