I wish that I had found this website earlier in my renovation experience. I have learned much the hard way and have found many friends who have husbands that are handy men that were willing to share their wisdom. I love working on my house and my husband hates doing that kind of thing, so I stay home and work on the house. It works out very well for us, but my knowledge base is somewhat limited; however, I am willing to try-things are such a mess I figure we can always call in a professional if necessary. I have spent the last couple of days reading the boards and have found much valuable information to the endless problems with my house. Thanks so much for all the great information posted here! I'll be hanging around quite a bit I am sure.
