Pantry door in kitchen painted yesterday, used Behr Premium Plus paint from Home Depot, eggshell finish...Deep Space 750F-7. It looked navy blue in the can but turned out great! Waiting to evaluate before doing more. Did not sand, needed several go overs...white door before.

Brilliant. Some of this I learned through 40 years of corrected mistakes. The rest I'll accept without question because the part I've learned coincides with the absolute truth catalogued here. These guidelines will shave off another 20 years of trial and error. What a find, this is a treasure trove for design.

I just tried to download the Jordan's free room planner - it won't let me unless I enter a credit card.

ChickieD, you can place a bid with the contingency that your bid only stands if the home passes inspection; that way, your bid is no longer binding if something is wrong that the seller is not willing to negotiate on. It's nuts to pay for an inspection on every home you're considering bidding on.

I am one of those people that find too many things wrong (the realtors cringe when they see me coming) - the clients get "buy it " fever and stop taking you along. Then they call you up to tell them what is wrong so you can fix it after they buy it. Doing things right is not easy or fast. Try to not buy a pre-owned home less then ten years old - that is when the real troubles begin to be come "obvious".

Thanks for all of your comments, it's great to hear the great variety of ways we're all getting our work done.

I wanted to add a link to a really useful presentation by Elrond Burrell and architect in the UK called, "Adopting BIM. An Architect's Perspective on BIM" for those of you weighing your options. It's a 4 part presentation he gave at London South Bank University.

You can watch it here:

Great Article! I'm studying Architecture in college and we learn hand drafting in the first few years. Then, we upgrade to AutoCAD, 3Ds Max and SketchUp. The last one is quite easy for the beginners and can also be learned through YouTube, easily.
