House Repairs

December 18th, 2008 at 01:17 am

Got the handyman here right now doing some repairs that should have been done years ago. We finally have some money to do the necessary repairs around here. We just refuse to put any of these stuff on credit, it will take a while but it will be so much better. Right now we got just a bit over $1500 left in the household fund and this job will cost about that much. I'm hoping to put more money in it at the end of the month. And this will be the first item to fund next year. My goal is to put at least $5K next year, that would probably cover some electrical work and insulation replacement. I think it will take us 5 years to do/save for all the items that we want done around the house. This is the first year of doing some repairs. We are just prioritising our to do list. I do wish sometimes to just click my fingers and everything be all done, ohh don't I wish!

    Good for you, taking your time and saving your money rather than using a cc to have repairs done...especially when it's not an emergency. Besides since you're saving for it anyway and an emergency comes up you still won't have to use the cc Smile

    I have been restoring my 1930's cottage for 9 years. A little at a time. I have added on two fairly good size additions, but keeping with the integrity and cottage look of the house. I am getting really close to being done and most of it was all paid in cash. I did have to put in a new furnace, A/C and wiring, which I did finance, but that is "hopefully" going to be mostly paid off by the end of this year. Keep up the good work, if will pay off eventually.

    House repairs...I get to start those soon! I am excited! Putting money into your investment...sounds like a good way to spend the money.
