Hubby started out with VERY little construction skills. But thanks to my Grandpa, asking, and forcing, he can now tackle electrical, plumbing, and cabinetry. Just don't ask him to put in copper.
I have a knack for design. But have the hardest time just putting up a towel bar. Thankfully I helped my grandparents enough that I could pass on all the knowledge to Hubby and he soaked it up like a sponge.
...we are working on finishing our farmhouse, preserving our barns, and latest thing...flipping houses.
