Specialized Home Remodeling Terms

By February 5, 2009

Follow me on:

Every profession, avocation, and hobby has its own terms. I have collected a few within the world of home renovation that may cause you to scratch your head. While it's easy enough to plumb the depths of home remodeling arcana to find bizarro words, I am keeping this list more to words that you might actually encounter.

Okay, okay, admittedly they aren't all that mysterious - especially if you give it more than 1.7 seconds of thought - so maybe this list is for people who have only given it 1.6 seconds or less of thought!

  • Heavy up: what happens when you go off of your diet or...?
  • Muntin: Those comic book characters (Mutt and...?).
  • Sub: a sandwich or...?
  • On-center: That "centered" feeling you get when you have remodeled your husband's den into a yoga studio...or?
  • Double-hung: Uh...something that really belongs in fellow About Guide Cory Silverberg's Sexuality site, or something else...?
