Yah, I kinda am that house advice guy. So if you have questions feel free to ask. I've remodeled every one of the houses I've owned. Some of my friends were even trying to convince me to become a contractor. I prefer to stay on the design side of things professionally though. If you need to replace anything and want to stay away from the Home-Depot effect (I like to call it crapification), I have some great sources for historically accurate fixtures, etc.

Welcome to the club.
