Default Frank from Kansas

Hey! My name is Frank, 33 from mississippi but live
Kansas. I just recently bought my 1st home and its pretty old. 1920 i believe and thinking i got a good deal but geeeez, its alot of work and i dont know much about anything and i wanna fix it up without paying a guy alot of $$$.

I like tackling projects but dont know where to start without havomg to pay a guy especially the basement crawlspace. I love hunting and fishing and reading God's Word.

Hi Frank and welcome to the forum. 1920 is not so old some of us have houses from the 1880’s. They were made to last a while if you take care of them. Before anything else you need a good roof and no water getting in. You can make a list of the things that need done and things you would like to do and the folks here will give you a lot of good insight into what to do.

Pictures help a lot and post in the section that is closest related to what you are looking at.

Glad you found us.
