Q: Any advice on installing crown molding solo? I’m remodeling my house but I live alone and don’t usually have an extra pair of hands to help out. Installing long sections of molding is getting tricky.

A: Asking someone to help out is definitely the way to go. But if no one is available you might try using a string to hook one end of the molding on a nail near the top of the wall.
