My husband and I just bought what is soon to be our dream home. It needs work but is sure to be perfect for us. I need to find a handyman to help us with the projects we can’t do and an HVAC repair in NYC to fix our unit.
We plan to look up how to do a lot of the projects on our own. I’m thinking this will save us a lot of money in the long run. Plus, we will have the added sense of accomplishment knowing we did it all on our own. The only things we are stay away from is the electricity and HVAC. The professionals should probably handle those jobs.
I’ve already picked out the color paint for each room. The whole house is going to be happy and airy in theme. The previous owners made a mess of the floors. They covered the beautiful hard wood with linoleum. I cannot believe they would do that but I am going to try to save it. I’ve researched how to remove the glue and sand it down to get it back to it’s prior state. Then, I think I may stain it a dark cherry color to offset the bright walls I have chosen.
My husband is in charge of the landscaping and is having fun deciding on which flowers we need and where they should go. We want the house to look inviting from the curb. It has a wrap around porch that we are adding a swing and rocking chairs on. I cannot wait to spend our evenings sipping a bevarage and relaxing out front.
This won’t be a quick renovation but I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do. I plan to spend the rest of my life in this house and making memories that last a lifetime.
