Toolmonger reader Scott writes in with an interesting question: “I just bought a house built in 1958; do you have any posts on general advice for a first-time homeowner? We’re already planning several projects including adding more insulation to the settled insulation in the attic.”
Scott, a thousand things are about to come at you at warp speed, but I guess the first advice is, don’t get too carried away with the fluff stuff if there are function/utility issues you can tackle first. For instance, if you need a new garage door opener and new carpet in the den, go with the garage door opener.
How ‘bout it, Toolmongers? What words of wisdom can you muster for a fellow tool guy and first-time homeowner? Let us know in comments.
