There just aren’t enough hours in the day. I have been busy with anything involving this new house since the last weekend of September. One week later, I have unpacked about 70% of our belongings, but we are not completely settled in. BUT we are getting there. Unfortunatley, we have discovered we have bought into a money pit. We knew there would be some repairs and things to replace, but the list keeps getting longer and longer with more work than we have time to do. I’ve made countless trips to Lowe’s Home Improvement for things like receptacles, deadbolt locks, parts for toilets and dripping faucets, dryer vent parts, garage door parts, and many other things. Our next big obstacle is getting all the duct work replaced. These are things for just the inside on the main living area. Our basement is a disaster with everything piled in one big heap in the center. Then, there is the outside that we haven’t even approached. I guess it will all get done in time, but I wanted it done yesterday!
Moving day was hectic, but I was able to take a picture of the truck.
Despite all of the repairs and problems, this is a wonderful house. It is my dream home, and I can’t believe I am living here. I have always adored a cape cod style home. My son wanted a second story so he could go upstairs to his room, my husband wanted a basement for his workshop, and I wanted a front formal room so I could turn it into an art studio. We all three were blessed!
Here are some other things this home has that I really like.
A very mature river birch and dogwood in the front yard.
A gigantic poplar tree (my favorite tree) in the backyard.
A wood burning fireplace.
Vinyl flooring in the kitchen and breakfast area that looks like stone tile. I actually like it better than if it were real stone.
A wooded backyard, thought it doesn’t compare to our old backyard.
