I've been a homeowner for about 15 years, but have not done much more than change a light bulb for most of that time. In July of 2011 one of my neighbors (a carpenter/ home builder) challenged me to attempt some repairs on my own with the promise of help if I get stuck on something. With his help I've fallen in love with these home projects. To date I've replaced several toilets, tiled my bathroom floor and intalled laminate, bamboo and solid hardwood floors and replaced my kitchen cabinets. I live in a small house, so none of these projects were particulary big.
I look forward to interacting withj you all on this board!
