    Site Member Introductions

    It might be nice and helpful if we had a thread where we (members) introduced ourselves and what trade(s) we're involved with. Just a thought, what do you think? [:I]

    <center>edit: If approved, this thread would be fine.</center>

    That sounds like a great idea. Could be a category type list? 'real' job, as well as interests?...Many people have much knowledge in their hobbies...

    Professionally I am a computer consultant, recreationally I enjoy enhancing the aesthetic and financial value of our home. My wife and I usually have at least one home project going at all times. Sometimes our projects take a lot longer than we thought they would, but we always try to have fun while doing them.

    I worked my way through part of school as an electrician's apprentice, so I have some professional experience there. Everything else I know is from books, trial and error, or this forum! Thanks for all the great advice!

    I did see a new members section so I figured this would be the place to come introduce myself. Found this site while cruising around on the internet, thought I'd come on in and give it a look. I'm a metal stud framer (7years), and a drywaller, (9 years). Have also been a painter, plastere, taper, E.I.F.S., and roofer. If it requires physical work, I'm doing it. Never did get that whole work smarter not harder thing. LOL. Well, anyway, hope to be of some help to all who need it. Thanks

    Hello everyone,
    I am really stoked to have found this site...so far a lot of my questions have been answered and I can feel the embers of motivation heatin' up.
    I am a CAD Drafter, I'm supposed to be going back to school to get my degree in Engineering, but haven't figured out what area I am most likely to be happy with.
    Up until we purchased our first home last year, I didn't have any experience with major home improvements/repairs. Since the purchase I have layed a ceramic tile floor, stripped and repainted my kitchen cabinets, put fluted glass inserts in said cabinet doors, stripped more wallpaper than should be legal for 1 house, put back up just about that much paint/wallpaper, faux finished 3 rooms worth of walls and put down peel and stick linoleum. Now that the bun is in the oven, I have ideas but no time or energy.
    A lot of apprehension, and never enough money...that's my excuse.
    It's been a year since we've taken ownership and I have about 10 years worth of projects...so I expect that I will be here a lot.
    You all seem like a friendly bunch (w/ the exception of a couple of not so nice posts from a couple of people) and your advice and instructions are very re-assuring. I can't wait to post.[:I]

    Oops! I goofed up on my first post...the bun left the oven
    9 months ago, that was right about the time that all of my
    home improvement projects came to a screaching halt. So, no
    I have no medical excuse for my lack of motivation...
