I'm just now breaking into the home improvement forum world and hope to be of help to everyone that I can. I've been doing home improvement projects ever since I can remember, starting with re-building my parents fireplace and deck with my father when I was about 10 years old. I've always loved working with my hands and am not afraid to take on any project. As an avid DIYer I have friends calling me every weekend to help them with some project or another. Anyways, I'm babbling here so I'll wrap it up. I hope to be a good contributor to the forum and look forward to learning more myself!
