He or she periodically visits the construction site to make sure that the residence is being built according to the plan approved by the building department. And since you, too, want it built according to those plans, the inspector is your friend. Or at least, they aren’t the enemy.

Wallpaper and varnish can make a cost effectve kitchen back-splash. Select wallpaper that you like. After measuring the wall where you are applying the paper, make sure to cut the wallpaper pieces a bit larger. Put the paste on it and let it set a couple minutes. Then, hang the wallpaper over the area you applied the paste, using a squeegee on the paper to eliminate bubbles and smooth things out. At this point, you can trim excess paper from the edges for an optimal fit. After the wallpaper is dry you can brush on a thin coat of varnish to waterproof the wallpaper you’ve applied to your wall.
