I'm obviously new to these forums. I recently bought a 100 year old duplex that is in pretty good shape but needs some attention here and there. I am not naturally handy (I envy all of you with engineering backgrounds!) and, unfortunately, the one guy I knew who was (my dad) passed away. So here I am -- I imagine I'll have plenty of newbie questions (mostly things I am thinking of doing that I just need to run by people who know what they are talking about).
