Hey, just wanted to introduce myself to the DIY community. I found this site a while back and after a few visits I figured I should sign up. I grew up poor so I learned how to fix what I had and make do. Since those habits were instilled in me, I end up doing all my own home and auto repairs. If I don't know how, I research it enough so I can do it myself. I'm currently in the military but hopefully retiring soon and starting a new career this summer. The whole reason for me registering is so I can fully participate in the forums and glean information from them, and post the progress of my ultimate DIY project, a 2900 sq ft house. I'll post progress in the Project Showcase forum. There's a lot of activity here so I hope to get some good advice and feedback.
