New Home Owner has lots of things to do!

My first home, and I'm really excited about being a homeowner (finally). I've got alot of questions, and look forward to learning all about things I can do to make my home more mine and put some craftmanship into it to be proud of.

Welcome hawkwynd!

When I bought our recent house, a foreclosure, I would never have attempted cedar siding, or replacing windows, or a variety of things!
Throw your questions out there, a lot of great people here will offer up their assistance.

But beware. There are a lot of novices out there giving bad advice. Consider several opinions first, then read the instructions!

Pick easy jobs first, and try to finish whole rooms. So if you have one room that just needs curtain rods, that's a good place to start

The problem I have is wanting to do everything myself, but not having the time to get even half of it done in a reasonable time frame, so I've learned (sort of...) to pick an choose.
