As I posted three weeks ago (I can’t believe it’s been that long already since I posted), I had some fixer-upper type projects that I wanted to accomplish at the house. The good part is that with the help of a friend and coworker, my husband and I have managed to get quite a few projects completed.
Two weeks ago we fixed the fence, added a screen door onto the front of our house and figured out what was wrong with the ceiling fans inside. Oooof I cannot tell you how amazing it is to have a fence that is completely standing again. And the screen door adds a nice touch of character to our house that makes it feel like ours.
This last week, we replaced the broken doorbell, and we fixed both of our ceiling fans in the house. We now have the ability to use both fans on whatever speed we would like without the fear of them falling down on us. We also decided to attempt to fix the dishwasher, however, that still remains to be a project I do believe. We fixed half of the problem which was it backing up into the sink when it would be doing it’s dishwasher thing.
Overall, the house we bought has not been a huge fixer-upper project but we have found ways to make it a fixer-upper house. There are still a lot of things that we would like to accomplish around the house and the yard. These things include:
- the yard (fixing the prickly and weed situation)
- replacing the AC (we found out it is as old as our house itself)
- replacing some light fixtures
- installing cabinet handles
So overall, many of those items are as we go and of course as our budget allows. I would also like to get the ceilings repainted by a professional at some point down the road as well.
Thankfully, we have amazing people who surround us who can help us do these projects and who teach us how to do certain things as they come to help us. It’s exciting to watch the progress from the house we bought to the home we’re creating for ourselves.
On a compltely random side note: Beth is now back in school…. and that kinda stinks haha. But more on that later!
