Greeting all, from south-west Florida!

Just purchased my first house a few months ago here. Found a nice Foreclosure on the market, ~2k sq ft in size. Been trying my hand at a few fixes here any there on the place, for the most part it's in decent shape. This site keeps coming up on all my google searches when I need help with figuring a problem out so I finally decided to sign up.

May not be posting too much, but will be reading constantly, hope to learn a lot through reading about other peoples experiences and troubles. I find a lot of the times I know what needs to be done, I just am somewhat unsure how exactly to do it, or what parts/tools I need. Hopefully I can pickup some tips on those areas here, and maybe a few more terms of trade I may be unfamiliar with.

Thanks for all the great info!
Keith

Aye, the humidity is killer here. I'm originally from western Nebraska, moved down here about 6 years ago for my first job after college. Even now the humidity still gets to me all the time. Maybe some day I'll move back out to the mid west. Gonna have to win over the GF on that one though lol. She's live in south Florida all her life, doesn't want to move anywhere that drops below 40F lol. She really hates the cold.
