Hi there! I'm new!
Hi everyone, I'm WannaDoAReno, or Wanna for short. I'm new to this forum, and to serious DIY in general, although I'm very interested in learning.

A little bit about me: I'm a student majoring in Early Childhood Development, and work as a Special Needs nanny. I love watching HGTV and DIYNetwork (got addicted during my freshman year of college and haven't been able to kick the habit!) and have HUGE crushes on the Property Brothers and Scott McGillivray. I'm currently in the process of trying to figure out a target amount to save up for a little house in Chicago to buy and renovate, which is why I'm here! I know next to nothing about most home maintenance things, much less renovation, but I figure I've got about four and a half years to learn.

Looking forward to reading threads and meeting people!

What is a Reno, and how do we do it? :laughing::thumbsup:

You want to move from VA to Chicago:eek:
Something very wrong with that.

I was born and raised in Virginia, and lived most of my life here (not counting the approximately three years total chopped up into bits and pieces spent in Manhattan with grandparents over various summers). I picked Chicago at random because my boss told me that the Midwest tended to be cheaper in terms of rent, and I did some searching and found that it was true. Besides, I've always wanted to see it, and figured, "Hey, if my parents can move from state to state, why can't I?":laughing:
