Hello fellow DIYers!

Thought I would take a moment to post an introduction of sorts.

My hubby and I bought our home three years ago - a new construction two-story. After looking at plenty of fixer-uppers and new houses, we ended up deciding to go new - something move-in ready that wouldn't require too much necessary work. While many folks purchase new in order to 'select upgrades' and such, we bought new simply because it was our first/starter home - and because being in construction, my husband would easily have the resources to complete any upgrades we chose at a later date (and for much less than builder markup). A few upgrades were already selected (i.e. we couldn't change them and had to pay for them) such as basic 6x6 tile in our kitchens and bath. We also have stainless kitchen appliances, which is probably my favorite upgrade and the most pleasing of their choices FOR us. With those few exceptions, everything in our home is basic, entry level, construction grade - which we are finding to be a big (albeit cosmetic) issue.

I'm the more Internet savvy us the two of us - and also the one with more time on my hands. I'm here to ask questions and get some assistance with smaller-scale projects and to help him with the bigger stuff when he needs help.

Look forward to being a part of this forum!
