Welcome to the forum. You will find lots of friendly, knowledgeable folks here who can help you with many of the things you need to work on. However, when it comes to structural issues on the shell or frame, or specifics of wiring and plumbing and such, you may get more useful information on www.apachepopups.net
. I was not able to get into the site using the straight URL. It just came up blank. I was able to get in using apachepopups.net - Index.
The posts are current, so they must be having technical issues with the home page.
Good luck with your renovation, and welcome to retirement.
Can you tell me what day it is...............Saturday? Again??
