Glenn...I was 40 years old until I got into DIY!
 
Hey all,

I spent 24yrs in the military, so had no need for DIY. If there was something wrong with the house, all I needed was a working phone! I make the call, and the 'professional' was around in a couple of days to fix the problem!

Now we have brought our first home! And I have DIY projects everywhere! 2 years in, and I am not close to finishing (so many people have told me that I'll never be finished!), I have a list of jobs completed, and an even bigger list of "jobs to do"! Everything from hanging a picture on the wall, to knocking down walls!

I am by no means an expert, and I very much "learn from my mistakes"! By the time I finish a particular job, I sit back look at it and say "If only I knew at the beginning of the project, what I know now"

Hates: Not having enough time for all the jobs
Loves: DeWalt tools!

Right...Let's find out some good tips and/or post some "Help!" comments.

Cheers
Glenn

Welcome to the forum Glenn, you will find the help here very encouraging.

For those of you reading, Glenn is my son and I........ a very proud dad.
Unfortunately he and his family live in Newfoundland and I in Florida so we don't get to spend much time together.
Keep up the good work Glenn and post some pictures of the work you did in your album.

Good to have you.
Every time I am doing a project my wife gives me several more to do, so the list is longer now than when i started.:laughing::yes:
