TOOLS & KNOW-HOW

Ask THIS OLD HOUSE

My grandparents’ house, located in the small mountain town of Index, Washington, has shingle siding with what appears to be double rows of shingles. I’m curious about why the shingles would have been applied in this manner, as it seems to use almost twice the number of shingles as most homes use.

A landscape colorful flowers flush with increases green grass, a home’s healthy curb trees, appeal. and Automatic sprinklers are the best way to maintain such a luxuriant setting while minimizing water use. Kits with simple-to-assemble PVC pipes, sold at home centers and hardware stores, make installation a one-or two-weekend job for anyone who is comfortable working with PVC plumbing fixtures.
