My house is in pretty good condition after 31 years of professional remodeling and maintenance. But now both of my children, a 25 year old daughter and a 28 year old son, have houses of their own. These are first houses, older places in need of lots of deferred maintenance and remodel. After having payed lots of money to pros, I have learned a lot. But I am not a good do it yourselfer. I have good ideas but at 63 and with a bad ankle and two replaced hips, I think I'll do best designing, organizing, and surpervising jobs. But to supervise, I need to know what and how to do it. That is where this forum comes in. I hope to learn a lot from experts and people like myself who are a couple of steps ahead of me. I may even be able to share my ideas as I have seen lots of projects evolve in front of me, done by pros.
I look forward to communicating with others interested in improving their investments and their lives.
