Many people have commented on the fact that I must be getting quite handy with all these renos we've been up to. I'm somewhat reluctant to admit that I haven't learned many new skills in the last few months. My responsibilities tend to be decision making and painting. The more skilled labour (tiling, light/sink/toilet installation, caulking, putting together Ikea cabinetry, etc...) is done by Josh while I'm at work. We try not to do anything too noisy on the weekends and evenings to avoid disturbing neighbours. Maybe instead of O-town Reno Addict, this blog should be called O-town Reno Voyeur.
So I may not be learning a lot of hands-on skills, but I have gained a glimmer of knowledge. I can now tell the difference between a Robertson, flat-head and Phillips screwdriver. I've also learned that Josh's brand new chisel is not a tool for opening paint cans. Live and learn.
