Home remodeling mistakes to avoid (link)

Look at that overloaded electrical outlet! Don't ever do that!! (I have to confess that a contractor doing some work in our house once pointed out a multiple plug-in outlet that he said wasn't safe. We switched it out for a surge protector multiple outlet that we had on hand.) Another practical tip is Don't skip the primer. (We've used Kilz a lot.) Other tips include Don't skimp on grout sealer. (I had to buy grout paint, btw, and wander through the house when the rugs and furniture are up for scrubbing so I can see where it's needed.)
