Patio Installation — Attached Rowhouse/No Alley Access:

“I’ve got a CoHi rowhouse with typical postage stamp-sized backyard (maybe 12′ x 10′?), which I’d like to rehabilitate with a low maintenance, eco-friendly makeover: remove existing brick and grass combo and replace it with permeable pavers. Adequate drainage is key, so I figure some topsoil and bricks have to come out, with crushed stone/sand/pavers coming in and layered properly. Here’s the rub: everything has to come in and out through the front door, as there’s no alley access. Has anyone tackled a project like this? If so, recommendation for a contractor (I definitely don’t want to tackle this DIY)? And how long would it take to complete, start to finish? Cost?”

Mini-split Ductless Air Conditioning System Install:

“Has anyone had a mini-split ductless air conditioning system installed? I know this topic has been on the forum before (and featured on the front page) but I haven’t seen any recommendations from anyone that has actually had the system installed. I have a relatively small attached rowhouse (1040 sq. feet) with no ductwork. Anyone have a similar house that has had a mini-split ductless installed and can recommend a reasonably priced and reliable company?”
