I built up my DIY confidence from some excellent videos by Shannon. Now, I am building a new kitchen in my basement and currently working on the rough in for the sink. While working on the waterline connection, i had some basic questions, i tried to find information on the Ontario code, but could not get the satisfactory answers. Hopefully some one can help me out here.
1. I am using 1/2 inch pex pipe, which i believe is the most common used size. I have an existing 1/2 pex pipe nearby which goes to the washer and is easily accessible. But i read somewhere that for the kitchen sink, i should have direct connection from the main line (3/4 inch pipe). I could not find this information in the ontario building code. Does it really make much difference?

Is literally falling into disrepair
I’m tired of people using these homes as crack dens and then the town just slapping yellow tape up and letting them fall apart
But I’m very sorry to also say that I also hate more so these city morons coming here and hiking our taxes up to the point of eviction…
You care less about this part of NY and more about your wallets… you fix up the town with a halo and finish it up by growing horns and kicking “lower income” citizens out… I wish I could afford a Victorian home on grand street or anywhere in newburgh because I actually care for this town… but I cant because once miss mink and mr miser move in from the city my taxes move up with them…
And I’m sick of it
Fix this town up but stay in nyc because I’d like to continue living where I am and not give up my home to the cityots… 😡
What is better Concrete Block or Stone Veneer?
In your experience, what is the best material to use?
I am looking for someone to restore some (exterior) posts on a Victorian. I found a business about 45-60 minutes from Newburgh that does custom work on a lathe. But I need someone who can actually do the work (carpenter). Be glad to have them supervise and handle the whole job.
Which is More Energy Efficient? Gas vs. Electric Water Heaters

Can anyone recommend Pet sitters that will work in Newburgh?
Hello, I am working on a house that is from the mid 1800’s looking around for bricks of the same era to do some patching. if any one out there is looking to get rid of some….
We’re thrilled to be moving to Newburgh but have details to clarify. Does anyone have a good surveyor and property insurance agent they’ve worked with and would recommend? Many thanks and happy holidays!
My Carpenter/ handyman moved and I’m looking for a recommendation. Personal experience with them, please.
The Historical Society of Newburgh Bay and the Highlands will be holding its annual Candlelight Tour on the second Sunday of December, Dec. 9th. It will begin at the Crawford House which is traditionally decorated with wonderful wreaths, garlands, and other greens and flowers typical of the 19th Century, the period when Capt. David Crawford built the house—1830—and lived there with his wife and two children. We are currently looking for other homeowners to share their homes with members of the public who so enjoy this annual event. The people on our tour are so appreciative of homeowners who open up their historic or architecturally interesting homes in the Newburgh area for one day from noon to 5:00. It is very much a family affair as most of the people on the tour have been coming to us for years, often bringing their friends along with them. We feel it is one of the great events in Newburgh, showing its historic side, its charming houses and the gracious hospitality of our homeowners.
So if you own an interesting or unique or historic home and would like to share in this wonderful experience (as I have, twice) please contact me, and I will be sure to get back with you soon. Or, if you know someone whom you feel might be interested, let me know as well or have that person contact me.
Thanks, Warren Cahill, Tour Co-ordinator,,email@example.com
Does anyone have a good plowing/snow shoveling service for the City of Newburgh? I’ve called 30+ places, but haven’t had any bites. Thanks!
