    I wish I could un-see that.

    I'm in the middle of having my kitchen and one of my bathrooms remodeled. I'm going to get quite good at this "check" thing I think.

    Re: How handy around the house are you?

    I have helped build decks, roof houses, and stud walls, A few weeks ago I helped my brother put in a concrete sidewalk.

    Personally I have fixed plumbing leaks, fixed drywall, put in a drop ceiling, put up a ceiling fan, installed a toilet, put up siding, tore a few things out, put a few things in ... heck, I've even helped lay brick on a few houses. I mostly did this earlier in life because I could and I needed to.

    I don't mess much with electric very much, plugged a screwdriver into a live 220 box once. Once.

    Last year I had my basement finished, I paid somebody else to do that and took a few extra jobs with my side business pay for it. Everybody was much happier that way. I wasn't always working on the basement and it was done in a couple of months. I probably could have done about 80%+ of it myself but figured what I do on the side is much easier, safer, and more effective use of my time.
