Hi. I live near Detroit and spend more time working on my daughter and son-in-law's 160 year old farm house than our own. Not much has changes since she was at home as it is still more work to get her to do something like mow the lawn or paint the bedroom than to do it myself. Right MamaLiz? She is very strong on the basics figuring that if you can't do it with vinegar, baking soda or sparkling water, then it isn't worth doing. I agree, but my list is epoxy, drywall screws and ACC (crazy) glue. I also enjoy building things out of wood and finishing them and post at www.Citristrip.com.
If any of the questioners happen to read this, I have one request. Please let us know where you are. The response might be totally different depending if you are in Florida or Minnesota.
