New to the site, hello there!


Hello all,

Finally pulled the trigger and signed up to this great site. So much info and helpful people around. I live in Vancouver, WA. USA. Right across the river from Portland, OR.

I've had my house for 5 years now and we love it. Built in 1991, a single level, 1400-ish SQ FT. 3 bed, 2 bath, 2 car finished garage. Ive done some minor things like trim and molding myself. And i have done some major things like the paint. I say major there because the entire inside needed paint on all surfaces!

The people that lived there before had it painted all sorts of bizare colors from room to room. You really wouldnt believe the color scheme. One day ill have to post the pics of it.

I have had the 2 sliding glass doors replaced with some high-end units. And the 3 bedroom's windows with some very nice units as well.

Anyways, rambling here.... Just wanted to say high and look forward to talking with people on here about my future projects that i would like to do myself.

Mike are you thinking of Vancouver Canada?

I think Vancouver Washington is way south of Seattle isn't it?

You can get there by boat from either, just depends on your version of short.
