Making home improvements takes time and money

For the first five years of our marriage, our partner as well as I rented a honestly nice apartment, then the two of us enjoyed every amenity. The building was equipped with a large swimming pool, hot tub, barbecue area, fitness center as well as game room, then within the lake house we had state-of-the-art appliances, including stainless steel refrigerator, stove, microwave, washer as well as dryer. The two of us had several full bathrooms with double sinks, a balcony with a view of the swimming pool as well as stone countertops. The heating as well as cooling method was charmingly quiet as well as energy efficient. There were smart control units installed in each room to cater to preferences! From an app on our iPhones, we could absolutely make swings to temperature from anywhere at any time. When we started looking to buy a house, we wanted all of these same luxuries included. The two of us planned to purchase a lake house with a swimming pool, zoned heating as well as cooling as well as the most new appliances; then unfortunately, houses of that caliber weren’t anywhere near our price range. However, in order to get the amount of land as well as square footage we wanted, we needed to downgrade our expectations quite a bit. The two of us ended up buying a fixer-upper with a seasoned gas furnace, no a/c as well as no swimming pool. My partner as well as I have made a list of lake house improvement projects. Most of them are quite expensive, so it’s going to take us years to complete them all! At the top of the list is a/c with a smart control unit. We’re hoping that if we spend a bit extra on a high-efficiency cooling system, it will keep yearly costs to a minimum as well as make the investment easily more affordable.

My vacation home can problematize things each year

I share my time between more than one separate home, but I spend the winter season plus fall at my smaller cabin in the south, plus the springtime plus summertime up north! No matter which residence I’m at, I never want to leave.

I settle into a routine plus dread making a change.

It’s strenuous to prepare the cabin to rest vacantly for 6 solid weeks, plus it’s a superb deal of job to open up a cabin that’s been left empty for so long. There’s always dust plus bugs plus webs to deal with. The gardens plus lawns are consistently overgrown, then when I move out of the cabin down south, I make sure to put a little bit of bleach in the toilets to prevent black mold growth. The heat plus moisture of the area can cause quite a few complications. I turn off the water completely, so there is no chance of leaks or flooding, but I leave the air conditioning unit running. I turn the temperature control up to 72 degrees so that the cooling idea doesn’t need to cycle on very often. I’d rather not pay high electric bills on an empty cabin however I’m also hoping to avoid destruction from mildew. When I arrive up north, there’s always complications caused by the severe winter season cold plus heavy snow! Even with the oil furnace running at a very low speed, the temperature swings within the cabin results in a superb deal of expanding plus contracting. There’s often current cracks in the walls plus even cracks in the window panes throughout. There’s the fear of the water pipes cold plus bursting or the roof caving from the weight of the snow. If something were to go wrong with the oil furnace, I’d have drastically high-priced problems on my hands.
