    I just bought a house and need all the advice I can get. Its my first so this is all new to me. Appreciate any help you can give.

    I guess my piece of advice would be do an improvement project every year. Make a list, prioritize and start knocking them off. We have an old house, I mean over 100 years old, it is a constant issue. We’ve alternated between something boring, like new windows, and something nice like heated floors in our bathroom and kitchen. Boring, new concrete basement floor. Nice, gas fireplace. But every year it’s been something. And don’t be afraid to beak it down into manageable steps, we did the windows over 3 years, one floor at a time because of expense, but each year we did it.
