So, how was your Memorial Day weekend?
Mine was uneventful, and that’s making it sound more exciting than it actually was.
I finally got my disbursement from my previous job, where I had an ESOP account. That means it’s time to start pouring some money into the house.
Entropy has not been nice to my house the past 3 years. I need new exterior paint, all interior flooring needs replaced, 2 garage door openers are broken, the master shower needs to be torn out and redone, the air conditioner is 21 years old, and my deck is about to collapse.
That’s a lot of stuff.
I’ve been having quotes done for the exterior work. They range from $3,800 to $22,000. I’m considering fiber cement siding. It looks like wood, but it’s woodpecker proof. I currently have 3 woodpecker holes in my house. Nice.
My neighbor sits in his driveway with his air rifle and shoots at my house all the time. I guess I should be thankful. Still, it sometimes worries me when I’m walking outside.
So, in a month, I’ll have my exterior done. Then I need to find someone comIncredipetent who can help me install ceramic tile and laminate flooring in exchange for booze. I’m hoping to find several interested parties.
After that, I’m going to get my neighbor to help me build an addition on my deck… take it out another 16 feet. I also need to landscape in the back yard.
I’m looking forward to living in a house that is free of holes and other assorted damage.
