I just found this site, and hope to find some answers for my ongoing home improvement projects. This place looks promising, and full of information and experienced members. I am happy to have discovered DIY. About me: I am an architect by trade, who likes to take on improvement projects. My equipment resources are limited, but I am bound and determined (and inherently stubborn) to do most of the work myself - even if it takes me forever! So it's good to be here . . .
