I just moved back to Austin after a couple of years in Italy and am facing remodeling a duplex from the early 80's. I have a little (very little) experience working with wood and construction but am clueless when it comes to matching paint texture, plumbing, wiring, etc. I am planning on tiling the bathrooms, laying bamboo flooring and refinishing the walls (orange peel is not my friend). I am sure I will have loads of questions but really hope that I'll also arrive at a point at which I'll be able to offer something worthwhile to others as well.
I'm really glad to have found this site.
So, hello to everyone!
