I don't believe the type of tub materially affects the noise level. It's the amount of sound insulation that they place in the unit that makes the difference. We went with a Bosch unit with a...

We bought a pair of Sears chain drive garage door openers when they were on sale. Looking at flyers, it seems they regularly come on sale, so I'd wait for a sale when buying. We don't find the...

Replacing Default Towel Rods and Toilet Paper Holders

We are living with the original paint. It's not great, but it's not a top priority for us. We'll slowly go room by room in the coming years. Moving the furniture isn't really that big a deal.
