New Home Owner in Ottawa

I bought my first home this summer in Ottawa and am having LOTS of fun with the small and large projects around the house. The home was built in 2004 for the builder to live in, but after a divorce, the house was purchased by me. With this said, most things were done correctly, however, they were never finished properly. Especially the landscaping...there was no grass, no gardens, no retaining walls (just a 7 foot drop), no walkway to the front door, nothing really.

I am really looking forward to getting the outside of the house to be functional and beautiful. With that said, at least until the snow is off the ground, I am in total planning mode and not in doing mode.

Hopefully I will be able to learn how to properly finish project and share what NOT to do with others like me. I am an engineer with a variety of experience, however, I sit behind a desk all day and have never perfected any specialty. I would call myself a jack-of-all-trades. I enjoy doing the work myself, but want to make sure that what I do is going to be safe.

I look forward to chatting with you and sharing experiences.
