I am a homeowner since 1985, and I have been doing various remodeling projects since then. I was a carpet and linoleum installer, starting in that trade in 1974 ( Yes I was 13 when I started helping the installers ...my dad owned a carpet store), in '85 I went to work at a fiberglass shop building fiberglass replicas of antique cars. I worked there for 13 years, after that I opened my own shop doing automotive fabrication. I have a fully equipped welding and fabrication shop, and love tools, hand tools, power tools as well as metal forming, metal machine tools and woodworking tools.
I joined here because I may be able to help with some of the flooring questions, and I see you have an automotive section that I might be able to help someone in.
I would also ask some questions as there are some things that I need a bit of coaching on.
I am a member of several automotive and motorcycle forums, most frequently I post as "powerrodsmike" on this one...
