My people. . . i am home :)
 
New member here, I like to call myself a "seasoned noob" with 85% confidence, 10% luck, and 5% skill . . .

Anyway, my hobby is DIY... why pay someone when you can do it yourself, right? I've done:

- 15x30 Deck
- new garage door opener
- new lighting fixures
- 600 sq/ft finished basement w/ half-bath(including all electrical, HVAC, and plumbing)
- Ceramic hall, half bath (using backer board)
- Marble floor master bath (using Ditra)
- Home Bar w/ electrical and plumbing
- Current project: Kitchen renovation: granite counters (cant do that myself), tile backsplash, new microwave range hood

Here's some examples of my DIY work:

Marble Flooring, Master bath:

Home Bar: (the finished basement around it is my work also)

Bu the looks of things you'd do just fine. Rhode Island isnt too far.

best thing about that (aside from the liquor) is that i think that entire project cost < $1000

thanks! I have kitchen renovation pics to post soon. . .
- New tile backsplash
- New granite countertops

someone should start a sticky thread where people can post pics of their personal renovation work for us all to see and learn from. I have a few photos myself. Floor tiling, etc. Gonna be buidling my own darkroom soon.(im a photographer that doesnt like digital)
