I live in Texas, and I used to build houses. Thats where I got the love of doing things myself instead of paying a plumber, or a carpenter. I've done a lot of landscaping as well, so I feel that I can accomplish about anything I set my mind to. My wife is always getting on to me for volunteering to do jobs for other people, when there is plenty of work to be done at my own house! (mainly projects that I already started).
