I was talking with a man at church yesterday. He told me about his awful weekend. He is currently remodeling his home, like I am. (By the way, I would highly recommend that you just start over. Remodeling is not fun and mine has cost almost twice as much as I thought it would; and I build houses and know how much things should cost.) Anyway, this man started remodeling on Saturday. He got off to a bad start when he stepped on a nail. He then got stung by a bee. He said he was just getting going again when he did what all framers worry about. He was using a nail gun and shot himself in the hand with a nail gun. Now this guy might just be accident prone. However, he is an auto mechanic and is used to using tools.
I am a general contractor and have all the tools to do the remodeling on my own home. Nevertheless, I have seen and experienced enough bad things to realize that I really don't want to do things myself. But, some of you want the experience, so more power to ya.
