When we bought our new house we knew that we would need to replace all of our windows and either repair or replace our two fireplaces. We also knew that we needed to put some insulation up in the attic and that there were some problems on the roof around the chimney. We were also aware that our hot water heater was pretty old and that it could go at any time. We knew that this house had been a rental property and was probably not taken care of the way that an owner would care for his or her investment.
Since we have moved in we have noticed a couple of other odd things.
1) The front door doesn’t fit right. Also, the door handle is in a strange place, so we can’t just replace it with a kit from Home Depot easily. Look how strange the location of the doorknob is.
3) We have two ovens, but neither of them are regulation size. Instead of cooking a turkey for Thanksgiving, we are going to have to prepare two Cornish game hens. (The two ovens are also of slightly different sizes. I cannot even begin to imagine the thought process that led up to this.)
Yesterday the roof guy came to fix my chimney and tells me that we actually need a whole new roof.
