I have observed that the soil changes in different places and houses in some areas are more likely to have needed or had foundation repair, that all makes sense. but this road creep thing....just a little hard to buy.<br/><br/><br/>any comments/thoughts/links?<br \><br \>2 replies Tue, 20 Sep 2011 19:46:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Road-Creep-real-or-just-a-sales-pitch-for-Pier-work/416356/ 2011-09-20T19:46:00Z Two sinks or larger counter top in master bath? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Two-sinks-or-larger-counter-top-in-master-bath/397028/ We bought a fixer upper.&nbsp; bathroom had two sinks.&nbsp; Never had two sinks, extra counter space sounds appealing,&nbsp; why would i want the two sinks.<br \><br \>15 replies Fri, 29 Apr 2011 17:44:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Two-sinks-or-larger-counter-top-in-master-bath/397028/ 2011-04-29T17:44:00Z New shower design with no door, do you like it? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/New-shower-design-with-no-door-do-you-like-it/397026/ <p>planning a bathroom remodel.&nbsp;has anyone converted to a walk in shower with no door, did you regret it or do you love it?</p><br \><br \>11 replies Fri, 29 Apr 2011 17:42:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/New-shower-design-with-no-door-do-you-like-it/397026/ 2011-04-29T17:42:00Z Should I convert my rec room into a garage? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Should-I-convert-my-rec-room-into-a-garage/406971/ The house supposedly a "Show House" back in the day, so the garage was converted to an office, then used as a rec room by the first owners. &nbsp;The room has been repainted from floor to ceiling, and the floor has new 12 x 12 tiles for a garage. &nbsp;the a/c doesn't cover that room at all, so the first owners used a window unit. &nbsp;we don't use the room at all, except for storage. &nbsp;The door and windows need to be replaced, as well as part of the siding. &nbsp;This is the first house I have ever lived in, and learning a lot. &nbsp;Would it just be more economical to convert to a fully working garage or do all the replacements?<br \><br \>4 replies Mon, 11 Jul 2011 20:47:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Should-I-convert-my-rec-room-into-a-garage/406971/ 2011-07-11T20:47:00Z What is the price of home? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-price-of-home/402217/ 1 reply Tue, 07 Jun 2011 21:11:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-price-of-home/402217/ 2011-06-07T21:11:00Z Requiring about programs for Help http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Requiring-about-programs-for-Help/399299/ Are there any programs for women on disability to recieve help with home improvements?&nbsp; I need help with the inside and outside of my home.&nbsp; The outside is masonite which my neighbors are saying its a fire hazard to thier homes and is now illegal.
