Shazam. Would you mind coming over to my house to fix the same situation on my door as well as I am stuck.
Minnesota, so it is better that the door remains shut for now. I am good to go now.
You in a small room in front of a closed door. You have the door's knob in your hand.
There is a table to your right. A dim light allows you to see what is on the table
if you were to look.
There is an ominous noise coming from below.

Your lamp is growing dim.
You have been eaten by a grue.
You have died.
We have a 9 year old brown leather sofa. The girls ( 5, 3 and 3 ) use it as a trompoline. I knew something was broken in the frame, but didn't look until last week. Cutting off the fabric on the bottom it turned out that a large portion of the inside is fiberboard. When you buy these things they tell you the frame is made with solid wood. Surely there is some solid wood in there, but the two primary ass supports were split in half and the beam between them had snapped as well.
I sawed out the broken pieces and bolted 2x4s on either side of each broken support. I think that frame reinforcement will outlast the rest of the sofa.
We still need a sofa for the living room, and having seen the inside of this one I'm suspicious of the sales folks. They're not likely to let me rip open the bottoms of the showroom models, right?

while right now it may not be the best Idea to send them to a trampoline out into the garden - in general that may be cheaper than new sofas?
in general unless its oak masive wood is lighter than laminat.
this is true. But getting them to not jump on the sofa is a work in
progress. My powers of persuasion, yelling, and open threats are less
effective than I'd like. And the new sofa's not to replace the old one,
it's to fill the currently empty room with someplace to sit beyond the
floor (moved house recently).
Stop threatening and start following through?
Sorry...had to be said. ;-)
And no, they won't let you cut open the fabric before you've purchased it.
Wed Jan 08 2014 11:27:51 AM EST from roue @ Dog Pound BBS III think the whoopie cushions would only encourage the jumping. Whatever threshold girls pass through that keeps them from farting loudly in public isn't one they've passed through yet. And the threats aren't exactly empty. There's plenty of sitting on the step in timeout and favorite toys being withheld. Not so much with the bottom swatting because, uh, they seem to like it. Which is all kinds of disturbing.
<wipes keyboard> Comment of the week. Surely, there's a Simpson's episode in there somewhere.
As many of you know, I live in a condominium.
Not all condominiums have people living in them. Some homes are vacant, with only a faceless corporate presence to maintain any semblance of ownership.
And when this happens, sometimes they ignore information from the condominium association to turn off the water to the unit (which is only controlled by the unit owner) before leaving the home vacant.
And when *that* happens, and you have a nasty cold spell like we have had lately, pipes burst, leaving four floors covered in water.
Fortunately, I was home when this happened on the top floor unit above me, and managed to get a hold of our property manager to stop it before all of our homes were completely soaked. Unfortunately, I'm the bottom unit, so by the time I found out, it was a tad late for all the homes above me.
My upstairs neighbor's mattress will need to be replaced. And I have no idea what kind of water damage we're going to have to handle moving forward. The water got into the vents, making me a tad worried about mildew and mold. My carpet is saturated with water in places, but I think they'll dry out okay.
Very nasty, but better than a fire.
If you live in a concrete building, you will now need people ripping out all wet carpets, drilling holes in the floors and using huge blowing dryers which make a whole lot of noise to suck the moistness out of the building. Theoretically, this is easier in winter, since cold air is drier than warm air. But opening windows and freezing the building is not really nice either.
My parents had those machines for a few weeks in their basement, when they discovered that a broken pipe had leaked into the walls for quite a while. Also, tell your insurances about the incident, show them every wet spot. If you find mold in half a year, you need to be able to prove them that it comes from this incident.
