A few days ago I was making note of all the issues with my house. My diverted attention has let several maintenance items lapse. My short list includes: Washing machine on the fritz again, handle broken off on dryer, dishwasher leaking, garbage disposal acting up, plumbing slow in kitchen sink, toilet seat cracked (you all remember the nurse who stood on it to smoke, right?), family room ceiling needs drywall joint repaired and painted, light bulbs need replaced, smoke detectors need new batteries, riding lawn mower needs blades/maintenance, grass needs cut, this, that, and the other thing.
Funny, ignoring these doesn’t make them go away…
We live in a community quasi-governed by a Homeowners Association. Yearly, they do lot-by-lot inspections. If they find something not to their liking, the homeowner has 30 days to fix it.
Well, you guessed it by now. My house made the list.
This is where I need your help. My ledgerboard, soffit, fascia, porch, and rakeboard need a fresh coat of paint. In plain english, my outside trim needs painted. I need to do this as inexpensively as possible. My intention, before Ryan was beaten was to put vinyl over these areas and never have to think about it again. Now, this is a cost I simply cannot take on.
