Hello from cold snowy Michigan
I am a 58 year old Vietnam Veteran and have a service connected disability. I am in to music, carpentry, radio controlled heli's and airplanes, robotics, and model ship building. I have worked as a electricians apperentice, automobile mechanic, corporate buyer and facility manager. I recently moved into my new home a month ago and have started renovating the house. I am being slowed by old man winter so I am building material lists, drawing plans, and formulating ideas to make this house my own.

That's about it for who I am.

Dave -

Welcome in your new location. Making you new house your own is a tough and rewarding project.

Where are you in the state? Upper, upper lower or lower lower part.

I lived at the top knuckle of my index finger on the handy MI map that always available (unless you use the 2-handed version to include the UP).

Clinton Township actually. I do most of my shopping at Selfridge and the rest of it at Lowes (lol). So far I have painted the living room and installed hardwood floors there and throughout the hallways. The weather is keeping me from doing much of anything else...well.... I did get to use the new Snow Thrower.
