Is it like this with everyone who owns a home? Every time I look around, there’s some new project that needs to get done.

  • a window seat that needs rebuilding
  • some built-in shelves that needs rebuilding
  • outlets re-wired
  • bathroom needs a shower installed
  • bathroom needs renovating
  • natural gas line fitted to barbecue (and probably a new barbecue!)
  • programmable thermostat installed (and should take, like, 4 minutes!)

But, man, that’s a lot of stuff! Why did I buy this house?
