After retiring years ago, my wife decided that I had spent enough time enjoying retirement and thought it was time that "we" remodeled our home. Of course, when she said "we," she really meant just me. Remodeling our home meant that I had to invest in a lot of wood, fencing, and electrical equipment to get the look that she desired. Unfortunately, when I was researching materials, I found that the information that I needed was scattered. It took weeks before I had a real idea about the kind of materials I needed. I started this blog to help others, especially guys like me.
