Hi all. My name is Kevin, I'm a new dad and first time homeowner of a 1960s house. My dad wasn't around to teach me how to be very handy and with no one to show me I never really took much of an interest in self-educating. Funny how things change. I'm looking to make some repairs and upgrades over the next few years and I hope this forum will be a great resource for me to learn, so as my son grows up I can teach him more as well.
