Debby Allmon Recommends Safe Way to Remove Mirrors

Debby Allmon was featured in this past Sunday’s Kansas City Star answering a reader’s question about the safest way to remove floor-to-ceiling wall mirrors.

How do I install new cabinets with old soffits that don’t fit correctly?

Hi Jake,

I have no idea about reno and stuff but we bought and moved in a 18 year old house two months ago. At first I thought we were just going to take out carpet and put in laminate. Anyway one thing leads to another... I went to an auction and bought a 36" kitchen cabinets only to find out the top cabinets are too tall.

The space between

Jake,

Our bathroom has bedrooms on both sides all the plumbing was on the right wall ,sink toilet and bathtub, we flipped bathtub fixtures to left wall. My question is the wall that it is now on is only 2x4 deep between bathroom and bedroom was there a minimum space that must be in between that wall?

Deborah,

There is no minimum that I am familiar with.
