  • Remove Kitchen Cupboard Doors

    Urgency: High Cost: $0 to remove, disposal? Status: In progress, 8/15/2009 Description: The cupboard doors are not good. They had to go. It looks much better without them.

  • Replace Clothes Dryer

    Urgency: High Cost: $378 before tax and extended warranty Status: Done Description: The house came with all appliances, which was good for just moving in but the clothes dryer doesn’t actually dry the clothes.

  • Delays

    Yesterday was supposed to be our closing date. That didn’t happen. Things are moving forward but not as quick as we’d hoped. I discovered yesterday that the pool which we’d been told was down was in fact still up. I drove past the place on my way to work to just look at it and…

  • House and Land

    Next week we should be closing escrow on our new property. This is a huge move for us to finally get out of an apartment and into a place of our own where we can raise animals, garden and do all of the things we’ve been dreaming about for years. We’ve been getting all sorts…
