Beginning in the world of DIY

I am in my early 20's who just graduated with a degree in the medical field. My wife and I just made our first home purchase, which is actually a duplex that we are using as an investment property. I am new to the home improvement scene, however, very driven to learn as much as I can and consider it a side hobby outside of the hospital. The duplex we purchased is rather large but very old and needs a lot of cosmetic and efficiency upgrades while maintaining a return on investment. I am a young guy with very little cash but a lot of "sweat equity." I have begun my collection of essential tools for doing my own home improvement. I look forward to learning from this forum! Thanks!
