I know for a lot of folks that getting things done around the house may not seem like much of a big deal. I suppose the reason I'm excited about fixing up the house is the fact that I'm getting close to being finished with it, and therefore closer to the ability to have more time enjoying the space, rather than worrying about things wrong with it. My house is over 100 years old, it's just a small two bedroom and it's basically a good starter home. When I was a kid my parents bought a house as an investment property. The house was in really bad shape, and it gave me, my brother, sister, and parents the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of renovation. I don't know it all but with time and research I know I can figure it out. And if I can do it, so can you. Here is a link I found on the web if you want to try and tackle this particular project. It's where I got the basics for what I had to do.
