Oooh, I have some painting to do. But ... not with a houseful of kids! Also, I have to hang drywall in some areas first ... by myself :| Should be loads of fun. But I'l be damn proud of myself when it's finished!

Tracy - You can do it! For me, that's like the most rewarding thing about diy, the feeling of accomplishment. The saving money part is nice too.

Jennie - That's good advice!
