We Are Still Getting the House Ready

The new house had a lot of issues when we got it, but my Dad and I looked it over really well and we made a list and figured out what it would cost to fix each problem one by one. We knew that it would take time and that we would have to set priorities so that the money would not run out. Of course we have been looking at prices on home security in Memphis, but that is not something that we are going to put at the top of the list. The big thing was the bathroom downstairs and that was a really serious issue. Fortunately my Dad had seen the same thing before and he knew exactly what to do. We signed the papers and he went to get all of the things that we needed, which amounted to an entire new subflooring. It was obvious that some person had left the water running or a pipe had burst and flooded the bathroom. The floor had rotted away and it was not even safe in my opinion.

At any rate we started to move in after we got a couple of the rooms ready, but there is still some work to do and we are going to replace the kitchen floor next weekend. It has some old tiles made out of some sort of material which has gone really bad with age. We figure that the best thing to do is to get that stuff that looks like hardwood, but it is really a composite material. It is pretty easy to put them together as they fit together like the pieces of a puzzle and if you are any good at all it then it is a really easy thing. You just need to fit a few pieces in place.
