Nothing is more frustrating than buying for first home, and then discovering loads of tiny projects. In addition to taking care of the lawn, you might also discover broken faucets, carpet stains, and more than a few drywall issues. Fortunately, by fixing the small things, you can learn a lot that will help you later. I have been working on my own home for the past ten years or so, and I can tell you first hand how important it is to get in there and take care of things on your own. My blog discusses all things repair and restoration, so that you can take matters into your own hands.
