Home repairs, home decorating… Both things that we normally do ourselves. We live in an older home and have had our fair share of issues with it.
Take for instance a few years ago, we woke up to our oldest daughter screaming “There’s Water Everywhere!” I’ll never forget it. As we jumped out of bed, we were greeted to a soaking wet carpet in the hallway, the toilet running, and a bathroom full of water. Ran downstairs and the kitchen was literally having a rain storm, water everywhere coming from the ceiling, floor was flooded, ran down to the basement, and you guessed it, water all over the place.
A running toilet all night went down from the second floor, to the basement. It was a hell of a repair, something we couldn’t do alone. Restoration companies had to come in,and the only good thing out of it,was that I was able to get my bathroom and kitchen redone!
That’s probably been the most ‘disastrous’ of situations in our home. Lately the thing we’ve been dealing with though is drain cleaning!
For whatever reason, our upstairs bathroom sink and tub clog every few weeks. We go through drain cleaner like crazy! Apparently the pipes are super old and they just build up and up. They’ll have to be replaced, I’m sure, but right now we just don’t have the money for all of that work that will have to be done.
So I’m glad in the 5 years we’ve been here, the only major repair we’ve had to do was that first incident with the flood,the drain cleaning is a pain, but not much of an issue.
What home repairs have you had to do? Any major disasters in your home?
