I just completed a home purchase this morning and it's going to be a big, ongoing, project to get it back in shape. The house was a bank REO and , altough i got a deal on it, it needs substantial work to get back in into livable condition. I'm going to have to work on everything from plumbing, electrical, drywall, etc. While the house was sitting vacant there was a little vandalism to the interior which I hope has ended now that I am going to start repairs. While i'm working on various projects I'd like to post and join in on several discussions that are related, and hopefully get some much needed input where and when needed.
I mainly bought the house for it's size and location ( big enough to build my home studio and closer to my physical job). It's just under 2200 sq/ft which leaves me enough room to set up the digital studio and it's 1.2 acre lot gives me plenty room to re-explore my love for gardening and aquiring rare plant strains and breeds( I lost my entire house and garden setup in hurricane Katrina). This will be a new start for me, entirely, and I hope to make some friends here to help me get things going when I need the help, and then pass any of my knowledge and tips to others when I can.
