Hello from Seattle

Hi All,

I bought my first house my first a couple of years ago after I came to the USA (I'm from Ireland). It's a waterfront property on the Puget Sound, and I and my wife are just pleased as punch. It's an older house, though, and needs a bit of work.

Like most other people, we've been feeling the financial pinch for the last year or so, so I've been doing a lot of the work around the house myself.

I really love the architecture of the older wooden houses around the Pacific Nortwest; they're truly a piece of American culture. I'm also finding that working on these houses is far easier than working on the brick and cement homes that are ubiquitous back in Ireland. Thank heavens for that!

Anyway, thanks for this great forum, and I'm looking forward to meeting and getting to know at least a few of you.
