Hello, I am from Ohio. My screen name "operatormase" comes from my career, as I am a boiler operator at a power plant. In 2010 I purchased a two story 1900's victorian that has been in my family for nearly 70 years. My granfather baught it and raised a family in it and I plan to do the same. I always take pride in the work I do, and this house is a way to show the pride I have to carry my family name.
Since I purchased the home, I have replaced the roof, and in the process of gutting the entire house. Future plans include replacing baseboard hydronic heat with new gas furnace/heat pump/Air and ductwork, vinyl siding, new plumbing/drains, out with the knob and tube and all new wiring, of course drywall and paint, and new flooring.
So I have only just begun. I have always been a tinkerer and hands on person, and I was taught that a man can do anything he puts his mind to.
So thats me, Hello.
