This is a great forum!

Hello everybody! I'm new to this site but am already in love! There's a ton of great advice out here and lots of helpful experts.

A little about me:

First and foremost, I'll apologize in advance if my posts are long. I type like the wind, so I can get a lot down on paper quickly. Sorry.

Along with my husband (happily married 16 years this Saturday!), I have been rehabbing houses for about 10 years now. At first, we renovated our own houses--great fun, lots of lessons learned. About 8 years ago, we got into the real estate investment business. Now we buy houses on the courthouse steps or by word of mouth, we renovate as needed and usually keep them as rentals. Sometimes, we sell. We focus mainly here in the Charlotte NC region and Fort Mill SC and Lake Wylie SC where we've lived now for 11 years.

Until recently, we've done all the work ourselves. We are currently in the middle of a very involved renovation ('to the studs,' new wiring, plumbing, etc.) which we've hired out most of the work. It's very frustrating. Oftentimes, I want to just throw on my crappy clothes and go on over there and show him how to do it right. (see my post entitled "trimming out drywall-wrapped openings").

I need happy pills some days. :-) tee hee. But I'm glad I found this group. Thanks everybody!
