new home owner


Just purchased my first house. It's old and small, but a great starter for my wife and I. I have a list of things I need to do on it. Some things I can do myself no problem and other things I need help with. I don't want to spend a lot of money, so I would like to do most things myself. Previous home owner did a lot on the front room, bathroom, and master bedroom but the spare bedroom needs a lot of work. I also plan on redoing the kitchen and laundry room. I hope I can get some good advice as I start my projects.
