My partner and I bought our first house at the end of April of this year. I will create a project thread in the showcase forum if anyone would like to keep up with us. I've already learned a lot and look forward to learning even more and meeting some good people along the way. We are about an hour west of New Orleans, right along the Mississippi River if anyone was wondering. Linking to the project thread as soon as I get it started!

See ya 'round,
