[OPEN DISCUSSION] Weekly thread

** Welcome to the open discussion thread (approximately weekly). ** & nbsp; We do this for a few reasons. We know that some people are hesitant to create a new post for a little question they may have. Or you have tips and tricks you want to share. Well this is the place to do it. This is especially important as a growing community, we find that we have to limit posts that may be off topic to the main purpose of the sub (home improvement questions and project sharing posts). These topics include home warranty companies, home advice, general painting advice, room layout, or tirades about previous companies, contractors, and owners. While these may be of interest, we are striving to provide a place that allows and limits conversation. Hence, this thread. Thanks for participating. & nbsp; If ** wondering why lumber prices are so high **, please do not re-post the question (most frequently asked): [most of the salient answers and discussion can be found here](https://www.reddit.com/r/HomeImprovement/comments/mwhd5w/is_it_just_osbplywood_or_has_all_wood_prices/). They usually turn into political shit shows with insults, so we will remove all posts that ask this question for a while. we appreciate your understanding. & nbsp; We are also aware that wood futures are down. Note that this does not correlate to actual material costs to the end user, nor does it mean that you can expect to see a drop in the price of lumber or other materials in the foreseeable future. Please watch [this tread](https://www.reddit.com/r/HomeImprovement/comments/o1ettp/cost_of_lumber_tumbles_after_recordhigh_prices/) where this is discussed. At the moment, all posts that mention wood futures will be removed and directed to this thread. & nbsp; If you haven’t already, please **[review the sub guidelines](https://www.reddit.com/r/HomeImprovement/wiki/subrules)**. It is also a reminder to stay away from any personal or disrespectful comments. From the sidebar:> Comments should be topic-related, helpful, and friendly. Name calling, abusive or hateful language, or disrespectful personal comments are not tolerated. No question is too stupid, too simple, or too basic. We are all here to learn and help each other, enjoy it! & nbsp; ___ & nbsp; Our sidebar themes:
