Hello from Louisiana


Hello all, I'm from Louisiana and my wife and I love remodeling old homes. We bought the one we live in and restored it. After that, we kinda just helped people out that wanted to remodel an old home. We don't do the whole houses, but we might do a kitchen for one, a bath for another, etc. We don't charge, because we started out just helping friends, and then their friends started calling. So it's starting to get out of hand.
Anyway wanted to say hello, and if you don't mind, check out my problem I'm having with my concrete pond. It's listed as a pool repair in general discussion.
Thanks,
Billy

Hello from Louisiana


Hey Billy, wanna come to new york and help me out?
I sure could use some help here!
Keep up the good work, your a good man indeed, (and your wife a good woman) i wish I could get a team of people like yourselves to assist people across the country to help people who need help. like the elderly and unfortunate. Hey, anyone who wants to join in and volunteer, send me a note, I really would love to do this.....

Hello from Louisiana


Thanks Woodpecker, I try to help out as many folks as I can. I would love to be able to afford to be in a group like your talking about to go out and help the older folks. Being retired, and living on a fixed income now, I don't think I could afford to pay the expenses to travel around the country . I would love to do that type of volunteer work. Get to travel a little and help some older folks, or some unfortunate family, out at the same time.
Also would love to come back to New York. Had the pleasure of visiting the state of New York several times. Spent a week in upstate New york once and spent 6 weeks in New york City. Neither time was for pleasure, but for work instead. Still enjoyed it both times. By the time I left New York City, I knew that subway system like the back of my hand .

Hello from Louisiana


Billy, welcome from a 'next-door neighbor' over here in Texas. You will love this site.

Since I'm a newbie DIYer, I post lots of questions [just ask joewho, Slickshift and AB ] and I look forward to seeing you around.
