Default Greetings

Hi,

There aren't that many people here so I thought it would be nice if I just introduced myself so you all would know who you were talking to. I am a brand new homeowner and this is my first house. It's a nice home but I need to do a few things to it to make it "look like me". So, over the next year or so I will be adding things and doing some pretty basic stuff to it, well basic to you experts, but to someone like me it will be complicated.

I look forward to getting to know all of you a little bit better and hope you don't get tired of my questions.

Hi There, I'm on my second home, and unlike my first home, we bought this one used. It was built in the 80's, but it is simply beautiful. Being that it is almost 25 years old there is quite a bit of upgrading we need to do to it.

I'm a mom (obviously), and I am fairly new at this, but am more into it than my hubbie...Nice to meet you all.

HI:

I am glad to have found this site. It is sure to know that there are lots of members here who are quite helpful. I have to say I am useless at decorating . Have always been a practical person, only display essential things at home. But now, I am thinking of decorating my kids' playroom and so may need all the tips and advices I can get. Hope you folks wouldn't get tired of my questions

regards,
Scarecrow

Default Hi! I'm new.

Hi everyone. I'm new here. My name is Jeremy. My wife and I just purchased our first home and closed on it 3 weeks ago. It's a beautiful Cape Cod style house that has been very well taken care of. I'm so glad I found this site and look forward to learning a lot from all of you.

Hi all. Like Daryl above, I'm a professional handyman. I would call myself a carpenter, but I do far too much drywall, tile, roofing, and cement repairs to pretend I'm a specialist anymore. I am in touch with numerous "specialists" in tile, cement, insulating, etc.

Hope I can add some experience and not get people in over their heads here with my "Oh, sure, that's easy if you've done 15 or 16 of em!" attitude!

Default Hi, new here.

Hi all! I'm new here. My name is Victor. I've owned my own home for 4 years, but bought it brand new, so there hasn't been much handywork for me to do. I just bought an investment property which needs a good bit of fixing up. It's an old four-square, structurally sound but needs a lot of tlc. I hope to get some good tips here.
