Hi Everyone! At the beginning of the year we bought our first home in southwestern Indiana, for what felt like a steal, despite moving during both the first and second snow storms of the year! It was built in 1979 and has had some previous attempts at minor updating and remodeling. However it wasn't until we owned the property that we could tell none of these were done properly, let alone by a professional. So that's what brings us here! Although the homes previous attempts at "do-it-yourself" projects has proven to be a complete bust, we're as well interested in doing most of the work ourselves... except this time the RIGHT WAY. We're still learning the homeowner lingo, so please forgive our rough attempts at describing our issues! We look forward to any and all advice everyone has to offer!
