The time has come: we may be facing our first significant piece of house maintenance/repair!
Our dining room/sunroom is an extension on the original house, and it looks like the roof on this part will need replacing, which really sucks because I was ready to decorate and invest on my living room , I have in mind getting an English Long case clock. A small leak sprung the other day (we’ve had a crapton of rain and a few storms), which we’ve solved for now but probably not for the long term.
I’ve also mentioned before how one side of our fence is chain link and falling apart; looks like this year is the year and it’s getting more urgent as lately we’ve caught one of the dogs sneaking over to the neighbour to play with their dog (which they’re not actually allowed to have, but that’s a whole separate issue…). We’ve been saving for this but doesn’t mean I like it 😛
Other stuff on the radar:
- Now the kitchen’s functional we’ve been putting off the final touches, mostly painting. Ah, DIY life.
- There’s an annoying dip in the driveway that fills up anytime it rains (so it’s a permanent puddle in winter) – again something we’ve been putting off tackling
- The baby room. It’s pink. Barbie pink on every wall. That’s gonna have to change, no debate!
Expenses aside, I love our house and life and wouldn’t change a thing! We wouldn’t be able to have these two silly dogs otherwise and I wouldn’t feel secure in having a stable place to raise this little spud-to-be.
