I live in Washington State, so I doubt you'll see me in Il with my toolbelt. If you have some questions about the home that you can be specific about, there are several generous professionals here who will be happy to give you what they think. When you ask a question, be painfully specific and descriptive. That will give you an answer that is far more helpful.
To the best of my knowledge, Bob and Co. are not really looking for projects right now, but that is just an assumption based on what I've read on this board. You might try contacting bob directly through his main website.
