  1. Hi Kathy,

    We are the So Cal remedelers council and we are interested in an exchange with your blog.
    I wonder if we can exchange links or guest posts? We do have a course coming up and a holiday mixer.

  2. Hi Kathy,

    You have a great, informative blog here. Do you ever accept guest contributions? (not paid) I am a writer for Pete’s Hardwood Floors, and they are trying to get their name out and share their expertise with people in the home improvement world.
    We wrote a blog post called “Liven up a dull hardwood floor with a screen and recoat.” Is that something your readers would be interested in? If so, I’d love to send the draft your way.
    Thanks for your consideration,
    Brooke McDonald

  3. Dear Editors,

    I provide online PR for an electrical contractor located in Portland, OR. We have an article, below, that could be a great fit for your readers. If interested, would you allow one followed link to our website in the credits,

    Many Thanks!

    How to Install a Sump Pump in a Crawl Space

    Moisture or flooding in a home’s crawl space is very bad for a number of reasons. The moisture enters building materials, causing expansion, erosion, movement, and many other structural issues. In addition, this creates the perfect, tropical living space for mold, mildew, snakes, spiders, termites, roaches, and many other undesirables.

    If this is a problem you have, one of the more effective methods of handling this is by installing a sump pump. In essence, the sump pump sucks-up any collecting water and jettisons it through a pipe and away from the home. This is all automatic, as long as the sump pump has electricity.

    In order to supply the pump with electricity, a receptacle, similar to ones found throughout the home, must be located near the sump pump. From here, the sump pump is simply kept plugged in, and via a floatation-sensory device, automatically ejects water as it occurs.

    How It’s Done

    So how is it done? How do the pros install an outlet in the crawl space for this purpose? First, you must identify the home’s panel and circuits. The sump pump will need a dependable circuit, so if one is not available to be joined into, a new dedicated one must be made.

    In short, this is done by installing a new breaker at the panel and running the appropriately gauged wires to the target destination; in this case – the crawl space. However, there is more to this than simply running a wire. Some areas may need to be drilled through or cut open. Knowledge of structural stability and building code is an absolute must when doing this. Knowledge of run-route efficiency is also important.

    Eventually, the installer would find themselves in the crawl space looking up at a segment of wire coming through the structural components above. The wire will need to be spliced and pulled to an appropriate length so as to allow for a proper box installation. The receptacle box will house the receptacle ultimately. But first, the spliced wire will need to be run into the box and connected correctly to the receptacle. Once this is done, everything should be tested.

    This is the most abbreviated version of a more involved electrical project for the home. Due to factors such as crawl space dangers, the requirements of advanced electrical and structural knowledge, and the potential ramifications of a bad installation, this project is not recommended as a DIY project my any means. If you need a electrical project like this one done, please, call the pros. You’ll be glad you did.
