Just wanted to introduce myself-- name's Calvin, and my wife and I will be closing on a house in a few days that will need lots of work to get it liveable. We're in a unique but good situation in that we are renting currently from a relative, so we'll be able to take our time getting the new house together. I've already done a bit of looking around here--seems to be a wealth of knowledge.
Welcome Calvin!! You are right on when you say there is a wealth of information here. What surprises me is the total willingness of the contributors to give you answers to your questions. A fixitupper can be a nightmare, but the rewards with a job well done at the end are so worth it and you will find the help you need to Get-er-done here.
Glad you joined us and hope to see more of you.
