I've seen A LOT of shoddy electrical work in my career, most of them by DIYers. Any job we take on, we always get an electrical inspection and bring Frank in to clear up the mess.
Mike Holmes Jr. and Eaton's Electrical Sector comment on some of the odd photos you have been sending me 😂

For The River House (Holmes and Holmes), we wanted a three-foot stone retaining wall that had aesthetics and also created a functional space for the marina/residential property we renovated. It ended up improving the aesthetic appeal of the entire neighborhood.

It combined the subtlety of natural weathered outcropping stone with the installation efficiency and engineered security of interlocking dimensional concrete blocks. Each stone was made of architectural-grade, pre-cast concrete of the finest quality, so its integrity will not be compromised by weather’s unpredictable elements.

Now, you know I am not a fan of complicated DIY jobs, and this is one of them. A retaining wall may be a small part of your yard, but it’s got a big job to do.

It may fail because you chose the wrong material, or had it installed poorly. Always check for level before you lay down your stones.

If you want to build a retaining wall yourself, go for a shorter retaining wall height. The first row of retaining wall blocks sets the stage for the rest of the wall, so make sure it is perfectly level. Make sure you check with your local building code authority before starting the process.

Showing you the install of my drinking water system. It has customizable filtration to meet my particular water concerns.
Really happy to have clean, clear water with my whole home water treatment system.
You can get cartidges to address things like iron and manganese levels in your water, arsenic levels in your water and scale causing minerals in your water 👍 I wouldn't recommend installing a water treatment or filtration system yourself. You simply don't know what particular issues you have in your water until you get it tested.
This system is called K5, and its by Kinetico Water Systems if anyone is looking for recommendations. They offer a FREE water test, so worth looking into.

There are no detectors out there that will indicate the presence of bad smells. It’s up to your nose to tell you there’s a stinky smell in the house. It’s important to know what those odors are, and what you can do about them. https://t.co/bcxsQyZejM

Water wastage from leaky faucets, running toilets or non-essential exterior use is one of the least green things you can do. It’s easy to save water—and save money—by being aware of what you are using. https://t.co/J6M1JpFwwB
