This is the place for members of the I-Hub community to exchange ideas, links and information on taking care on one of our biggest investments, our homes.

Ideal subjects are maintenance, renovating, repair, gardening, landscaping and anything else dealing with the home.

Your expertise, experience or opinion is valued here to help us perform a service.
" Neighbors helping neighbors "

Any ideas for the site or if you have an interesting link, feel free to post it or send me a PM.


Thanks to excel & broderick_s for helping put this thing together. ~ shao
