Obsessed DIY'er girl
 
Hello all

I've read around on this forum with a few recent projects I've had, and finally decided to join up.

About me - 33 yo handy girl, just bought a house in upstate NY. (house #3). I'm pretty good with tools - I was always looking over my dad's shoulder as a kid, and as soon as I got my first house, the home improvement fever began. I've done extensive remodeling to all 3 homes - Tile, bamboo floor, lots of electrical, a little plumbing, drywall & plaster, and framing/deck/shed building as well.

I just recently finished a bathroom remodel (well, 90% complete) which included tearing out everything down to the floor beams and wall studs, and then built a tile shower. Definitely my biggest project to date, done almost entirely (and stupidly!) by myself, but happy to say I just took a shower in it two nights ago.

I'm no contractor, nor would I ever claim to be - I have tons and tons to learn. I want to learn as much as I can from all the experience here, as well as share some of my own mishaps and experience to people such as myself.

Welcome to the madness. Nothing more satisfying or rewarding than doing stuff yourself, until you screw it up and have to do it twice :laughing: I love upstate ny. I have a friend up that way with a few acres and thats my destination for rest, relaxation and some fresh air after a few weeks of work.
