This house is a money pit. We seem to throw so much money at it, and it seems there is always something more that needs to be done.
Today, a handyman will come here to repair our window frame, which is rotted from a previously dripping air conditioner. We have replaced that air conditioner with a Friedrich, which does not leak. I recommend Friedrich highly for that reason. Meanwhile, this wood rot needs to be addressed:
On Saturday, a painter will patch and paint our bathroom. I told him I wanted it to match the rest of our house, which is painted white. I hate the present beige color of the bathroom, which looks dingy and drab. I prefer white, which will make the room look bigger and cleaner. There is something about white that appeals to me. It’s airy, refreshing, expanding, and breezy. It just looks better than tan or green or some other weird color.
However, we do have accent walls to break up the monotony of the white paint. Remember these accent walls that were wallpapered?
My dining area:
And this accent wall in our living room was painted yellow:
The gutter keeps falling off the edge of the roof, so we need to hire someone to fix it.
And the eaves need to be power washed to get rid of the dirt:
We also need to hire a licensed electrician to inspect our home for potential short circuits, which could set the house on fire. Several houses in our neighborhood have burned down for electrical reasons.
There are other things that need to be addressed that I won’t mention. It’s so tiresome to maintain a home, isn’t it?
And, yet, how wonderful it is to live in a well-maintained home!
