Default Hello people

My wife and i bought a "fixer upper" which most will call a "ripper downer".It is 108 years old and suffered from lack of up keep.I am a trucker who now has to be a "jack of all trades master off none".So far replaced first floor stringers and put in new osb.got the heater running now need to plumb the duct work.Did all new wiring and plumbing. also replaced a load baring wall that was built wrong 100 years ago.still so much to do and very little time.oh yeah i live in this nightmare.I just keep telling my self in the end it will be worth it.
