Ok so I'm looking at buying a house at a pretty fuckin good price, but it's gonna need a ton of work. I don't work construction; the closest I ever got was working a bit with a finish carpenter.
Lots of things need to be fixed immediately: Siding, windows, front decking, flooring.
For the siding and the windows, I figured I'm just going to let the pros handle that and probably pay out the ass. But I'm thinking I could probably handle installing new hardwood floors.
My questions are:
>What do I need to look out for
>I'm thinking about strand bamboo since we have a dog and will have a lot of foot traffic. Bad idea? Any experiences?
>Am I better off using Engineered wood or does it just look like shit?
>Is the learning curve that bad?
>I figure I'll probably be flooring between 1200-1400 sqft. Any tips?

Third time lurker, first time poster.
The head deck in my car sits pretty high up towards my dash, and being an old car, the windows aren't tinted at all. The LEDs on the unit are pretty bright, but it still gets too glarey throughout the day to even read it at all. I'm looking for a cheap and easy way to remove all/most of the glare. I had an idea of having a kind of plastic visor attached to the surroundings, which would place the unit in a 'hidey-hole' so to speak. Let's see what you can come up with! Thanks.
Btw, if it was to look like shit, I'd like it to be easily removable.
