New poster in St Charles, IL


Just found this forum today. I recently moved from Winter Garden, FL to St Charles, IL do to a job change.

We purchased a house built in the early 90's. We really bought because of the great 1.5 acre lot, the really nice neighborhood and the super convenient location. The house, really needed a bit of help. Its pretty solid, but really needed a kitchen and bath room remodels.

We are tackling the kitchen right now. My wife, and I have always done a lot of home improvement projects and are no strangers to Lowe's and Home Depot.

Unfortunately, my wife was diagnosed with stage-3 ovarian cancer last year, so the battle for her health and recovery has pretty much dominated our lives for the last year. Some might say we are crazy to tackle such a major home remodel with all this going on. Sometimes, I agree! However, this is a project my wife really wanted to take on. She is not currently capable of the hard work anymore, but this is something for us to work on together, and it helps for us to have something that we can tackle.

I will probably be here often, as we work through all the details of this project.
