Hi everyone,
I have read this sight in the past for useful hints. I decided to dive in all the way and sign up. I am what would probably be called a semi-pro. I retired a while back from a full time firefighter job but have worked construction part time and none DIY projects all my life. I now pick up projects to keep me busy and make some money as well. I recently finished adding a master bedroom suite and a garage bay to my son-in-laws house, built a 30' x 50' pole barn, just finished replacing trim and interior doors in a home and I am currently working on fixing termite damage and remodeling my 110 year old home. I do ceramic tile as well. I guess I would be classified as someone who will try anything once. Because I try so many things I often have questions on the best way to do things correctly. Drives me crazy when I find things people have done half right. Plan to use this sight to get my questions answered and maybe help someone else along the way.

Mark Hopkins
