    My sister lives real close to the San Jancinto river. real close. She has gone through enough floods that she is calling her contractor before the water recedes. The last one put 7 feet of water in the house, they were rescued from the 2nd story window. The water washed away the brick, insulation and sheetrock, leaving only the studs on a couple of the downstairs walls. It is beautiful once again, but durned if I would keep living there.

    of course dw has to pick out all the door handles.......
    the one thing i do not like about the cabinets are the shelf clips, they are plastic will need to find some metal ones that fit the holes or will drill them out...

    i hate those too. for some of our shelves that have heavy jars on them i put pieces of wood in the corners to give them some extra support. i don't even trust the metal pegs to hold under that kind of weight.

    for the book shelves in this room they were metal pegs for the holes in the wood, but the shelves themselves only had a notch in the wood. i ended up finding some washers that were the perfect size and tapped those into the holes so the metal pegs weight was distributed over the size of the washer.

    I would certainly hope so, some things are above your pay grade.

    I replaced every round door knob with the lever type. When you have arthritis those are a lot easier to use. I put that type on my outbuildings where appropriate as I can open them easier when my hand are full. The downside is a dog can learn to open a door with the lever type really easily, especially when it opens inside.
