Re: What can I do to fix rough/wavy/uneven slab.

Ouch. I married one, too. ;)

Re: Drill 2 in hole in nail embeded wood beam

Just use a chisel. The plug will pop right out and then you can continue with the hole saw.

Re: Controlling overhead lights with a new liftmaster opener

That's a nice solution for a single garage door. Multiple doors require lighting contactors, (if they are all hooked up together with the lights) which is a lot more involved. There is also a nice...

Re: Shortening steel entry door

Best to raise the entire door and frame in the opening. Hopefully your rough opening is big enough to make this pretty straightforward to do.
