About This Web Site

Our purpose in creating this site was to share with you how we repaired various parts of our house. Because we have an old house, the materials needed to fix problems are different than those needed for newer homes. We also wanted to use the latest techniques so that our maintenance in the future would be minimized. Time will tell if what we did will hold up, but from all we have researched, it should.

All of our recommendations are what we found after doing research on the web and talking to others fixing old houses. The products we highlight are solely based on our judgment.

If you have any recommendations or know of better techniques or products, please let us know.
