Default First Home in Pacific NW

Hey everyone!

After living in tiny apartments for the last ten years (and moving every 2-3) my husband and I just managed to buy our very first house near Seattle. It's in perfectly livable condition but there are a lot of projects available. Since I'm a student and my husband is a public school teacher, buying this place took nearly all of our cash--DIY is going to be a big part of my life for a while!

Being as I've always rented, repairs were always the landlord's problem and so I'm pretty brand-new to most of this. Still, I've always liked being handy and I think with help I'll be able to handle most of the things that need to be done. I'm happy to have found a place to tap into collective wisdom!

I feel funny saying "welcome" because I just started here too I loved it when I was living in Washington state as a kid. Hope you find the help you need here. I love forums like this. Everyone seems really helpful.
