Does Your House Need Some T.L.C.?
Owning a house has a lot of advantages, but it also has a lot of disadvantages. When something breaks you can't just call a landlord to fix it, it's up to you to fix it yourself or pay to have someone take care of the problem.
Chris and I both like our house, but whenever something breaks at our house, Chris starts lamenting about how much she hates our house. I have to remind her that every house needs some work done.
According to the New York Post, the average home needs nine different repairs right now. They say a third of the people have been putting off at least one of the projects for over a year.
Chris and I just had our upstairs bathroom redone. Well, at least the shower part. When we bought the house in 2002 it had a tub and shower unit with tile on the walls. We just had that removed and had a stand-up shower put in. It was something we talked about doing for a couple of years and just got around to it.
We need some other work done at our house too. We need to replace a door and replace a double pane window in our bedroom because one of the window panes is broken. We've also talked about remodeling the kitchen with a new floor and new cabinets.
