Hello. I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I'm a fairly capable handyman type with a pretty diverse skillset and the willingness to tackle pretty much any project that does not require an engineering degree or advanced math skills. I'm 50 and my wife and I just bought a fairly unmolested and well preserved large 1925 craftsman-style bungalow in Washington DC that needs all the kind of work I can do and (hopefully) not much of what I can't. First up starting in mid-May is fixing up the basement and a total kitchen remodel.
My hobbies are fly fishing (totally a rabid saltwater fly fisherman), collecting and restoring vintage standard guage Lionel trains, and cooking and collecting pre-WWII cast iron skillets.
I'm an IT consultant and am pretty good around a PC. I build all of mine from the ground up.
Stuff I've done in no particular order whatsoever:
Wall framing, drywall and spackling
Vintage window repair
Painting (brush roller and spray)
Plumbing (copper fitting/soldering)
Bathroom and kitchen plumbing fixtures - repair and replacement
Basic electrical (up to the panel)
Wood floor refinishing
Electrolysis rust removal
Home networking for computer, audio, and video.
Looking forward to picking people's brains here when I am confronted with a dilemma or paint myself into a corner. :P
