I recently bought my first home in south philadelphia about a year and a half ago. It was sort of a fixer. I had never done anything like it before.
Thanks to this website and all of the people who post here, I've removed walls, re-wired properly, done plumbing, installed floors, drywalled, installed trim, exposed and re-pointed brick, built a deck.. all sorts of fun stuff. So, for that, thank you.
Oddly enough, I'm just now joining to participate a little and help where I can (and also pick brains about a couple of things).
