Good morning from Upstate NY

I guess "upstate" depends where you are in NY, but it's not NY City. Just found this site and like it already. I used to do construction years ago; framing, siding, roofing, some trim work. Hate painting, taping, plumbing and electrical. Mostly renovations but some new construction. Like I said that was 23 years ago. I have few tools and little recall of how I did the things I did, so I'm hoping this site will be helpful. So far it looks like I won't be disappointed.

My father died last May and I inherited the house I grew up in. It was new when he bought it in the fifties, one of those post war development houses they threw up in the woods to house the folks who were running from NYC. It needs alot of work as the old man wasn't one to hire anybody to do anything, whether he knew how to do it or not. I admired his ability to just grab a book and go to it, but he rarely followed the directions once he got the general idea.

Anyway, I'm hoping to do a long slow renovation on the house and this site (and you guys) are going to be my savior. Aren't you glad?
