New homeowner in northern Illinois
 
Hello all,

I have browsed this fantastic website many times since first finding it after my fiancee and I purchased our first home in September of last year.

We are in the works of planning our wedding while working on updating our house - no small task, to say the least! I decided to make an account so I can give some advice back as well as ask some of the questions others have not already asked, hopefully sparking good discussion.

I do not and will not claim to be an expert by any means. I work a white collar job with seniors in a skilled nursing facility, but during the weekends and evenings I love putting my blood, sweat, and tears into my home, vehicles, the family farm, and of course my family.

My father always taught me by example that although sometimes it's easier and wiser to have an expert do the work for you, it's never a bad thing to first educate yourself and see if it's a project that you can tackle and learn from. I have lived all my life this way and I always attempt to research things as well as the trusty "learn by doing" method which is why I think I'll be a perfect fit for this community and look forward to contributing.

Dave

Welcome!

I've learned a lot here, and shared when I could.

North East Illinois per chance? I was born and raised in Lake County.

I live on the very Eastern edge of McHenry county. I work in Lake County, was born and raised in Dupage, and my family lives in Cook, Will, and Kendall so I'm more than familiar with the Chicagoland area.

Thanks for the welcome, glad to be a part.
