I just became a home owner. As such, I will be spending an inordinate amount of time wanting to talk about fixing stuff, renovating stuff, building stuff, and decorating stuff.

While we have some threads on this forum which are about parts of home improvement (such as gardening), I didn't find a "home improvement" thread when I did a search. So now I'm cluttering up the forum with one.

To start out, I just laid about 390ft2 of tile downstairs. It's bronze-age technology, I thought. Should be easy, I thought. They worked hard in the bronze age. My back and knees are wrecked, and it looks like the tile was installed by an amateur. Because it was. But I'm still proud of it and will post a picture as soon as I've a working computer at home again. 18" porcelain tiles, mix of stone-looking ones that I found on clearance. I like the mixed look. It's boring when all the tiles look alike.
