Just when I thought it was safe to relax, here’s how I spent Saturday (and a little bit of Sunday) along with Nate and my dad):
- Patching holes left after removing nerf basketball
- Fixing leaking kitchen sink
- Fixing full bath sink stopper that didn’t actual stop
- Crawling around the crawl space looking for things on the inspection report
- Measuring garage steps (that are currently not to code, hopefully it wasn’t code when they were built and they’ll be grandfathered in)
- Measured/purchased gutters for two areas in the front of the house (not as scary as I thought)
- Inserted breaker blank cover to prevent accidental shock. (You know, in case anyone accidently sticks their fingers into the 1/2 inch hole and screws around enough to loosen a wire and electrocute themselves, in which case I’m not entirely sure they don’t deserve it)
- Fixed garage door reverse mechanism that didn’t respond to opposing force and would crush small children that managed to avoid the sensor
- Strapped dishwasher hose above disposal line to prevent backups
- Fixed dripping washer connections (which we and they wouldn’t have known leaked if we hadn’t taken the washer and dryer)
- Build cat area in storage area off the dog’s room (it’s really SO very cool. it also involved re-teaching my cats how to use the cat door since they hadn’t used it for the last 20 days, even though they used for two whole years before hand)
- Altered down spout to fill new rain barrel. Yay rain barrel!
This means we only have a few things left to fix from the inspection report, unfortunately they’re the things that seems like they’d be a bigger pain than we’re willing to undertake on their own.
Fortunately there’s a light at the end of the tunnel!
(WHOOPS! I thought I posted this on Sunday.)
