Greetings from Tennessee

Hello and greetings from Tennessee.
Hi Ya'll.
Been a DIYer all my life, 64 years so far.
Worked in a foundry for 32 years, automotive supplier for 2 years, for a general contractor for 9 years and for myself for ever.
Been an electronics technician, electrician, facilities/layout designer, plant engineer, machine designer, and jeweler.

I have just taken on the largest project of my personal life. I am building our retirement nest. The bad economy of the last 6 years has pretty much broken all my eggs, but I still need a nest to call home. Had to sell the farm and home I have been building since 1976 and moved to town. I now have a house that was built in 1960 and am just starting a gut remodel.

First thing I did is build a 16' x 24' wood/work shop. The house is now gutted and I am starting to put it back together.

He is a cagey old carpenter.....
