Katie & I went to the home inspection at her soon-to-be new house. See that turquoise trim? Top of the Punch List for change. Inspection went well, very thorough and mostly cosmetic & cleaning up type stuff. A LOT of yard work. A LOT of scraping popcorn ceilings. A LOT of painting rooms. A LOT of light fixtures to replace. A LOT of wood paneling to remove.
But the roof is good, the furnace and water heater are new-ish, and we may be able to live with the downstairs carpet after a good cleaning (for a while at least) A backyard fence has moved to the top of the Punch List, crowding out that new carpet. The old fence is bockety, to say the least.
Also, the AC doesn't work. It dates approximately to the Big Bang, so we'll have to think about replacing that. It gets hot in the summer here, no AC is kind of grim.
Stay tuned for further adventures in home improvement. We are watching the DIY Channel 24/7 to ready ourselves.
