Home Ownership 101!

Thursday, November 29, 2012

My brother, Edward, sagely advised me this summer, "You should plan for things to go wrong; once you're a homeowner, little things cost big money." We are (finally!) getting ready to move in. Phil had two things on his to-do list yesterday: get the water and power turned on & rip out the cabinets, sink, and stove in the apartment. Unfortunately, he failed at both.

The water didn't come on. The plumber who consulted with Phil this morning suggested calling a well guy. Yikes! I don't have enough money for a new well.

The stove from the apartment broke to pieces when removed. That means that the one that came with the house will go into the apartment, and I'll pick a new one for the house. I'll get the one I want, which is good, but there's another unplanned expense. Yikes, again!

I sure hope this gets fun soon!
