@splitbrain hey, I just read through your house blog series. I'm in a similar position of buying a house in Berlin that may need some renovation. How did you learn how to do these things, like installing a toilet and new flooring?

@sixohsix it sounds cliche but the answer is Youtube. It is really a treasure trove of information on all kind of handy work.
The flooring really was the easiest part, since I have put down laminate in several apartments over the years.
I think I learned most during the work on the electrical stuff, but luckily I had someone at hand who could give me advice in real life for that.

@splitbrain that's really good to hear.

I'm hoping I don't have to do electrical work but routing Ethernet might be nice. Drywalling might be a thing. Looks like I've got some YouTube to watch!
