We owned our home for ten years and enjoyed it so much. We had a blast furnishing it. Michael put roll out shelves in all of the bottom shelves and in the pantry. So nice. Also in the bathrooms. He put the hardware up for all of the draperies.
While any realtor who gets foreclosure listings is supposed to keep the grass and trees from dying, this one did not. Michael had to put all new lawn in as well as move trees out.
We also had a blower into the fireplace to the tune of a few hundred dollars, I love having the heat of a fireplace.
In the townhouse I bought in Bakersfield I found a round metal tube curved on the ends. Cost to me zilch, $20.that worked in my little fireplace and kept us real warm. Archie and me, later Ebony.
