Well hello there. My name is Adam and my wife and i just had our first anniversary in both marrige and the house! We bought a 1958, 1200sf ranch which had completly renovated. Worth it! most of the little horror stories are coming from our friends, we just get to do the fun projects. easy stuff at first, tile, paint, new light fixtures.
So a bit about us, we live in the southern tier of New York near the PA border. I'm a sales rep for Scotts Miracle-Gro and my wife is an high school art teacher. She's great with ideas and paint, and i can try my hand at building just about anything. I have a novice background in electricity, (I know to dissconnect power first) and have a pretty good variety of tool to complete the job. It's a shame i didn't find this place sooner, look forward to poking around and posting a few questions of my own. Thanks!!
