Aging IT geek, engineer, motorcyclist, woodworker, drummer, sometimes mechanic.
In 2012, my wife and I bought my parents' house on the Mississippi outside the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Bought an IH 444 tractor to help do landscaping work. In 2014 we started a remodel and 1000 sq ft addition, and - questionably - decided to take on the GC role and do much of the work ourselves. (Ourselves meaning 80% me). The 444 continues to be very handy around the yard... when it's not broken.
