Top 10 Annoyances About the House Right Now!

Posted by unbeelievable on January 31, 2009

Building a house is neat, but it has its annoyances as well. Here are 10 I can think of!

10. Home Depot has over a million items, but always seems to be missing — or out of — the one thing you need.

9. Subcontractors who don’t show up.

8. No heat hooked up yet = Brrrr

7. Paying rent in our apartment — still — this is month 18!

6. Dirt and trash multiplies and is not kept at bay with daily sweepings. One of our subcon’s even left something called a “trucker bomb” outside. I’ll let you google it.

5. Buying the wrong part on e-bay and debating what to do about it.

4. Just wanting to sleep in on Saturday morning

3. Running out of $$

2. Making constant decisions about which type of hinges to pick, or which doorknob, or faucet. They all look pretty much the same to me! 🙂

1. My inability to ignore all of these annoyances and have a positive attitude about this process.

Ahhh that’s better. Thanks for reading. 🙂

Hello my dear friends!  It has been ages since I have posted, I know.  That’s because I have a new job (woohoo!!) and have been working my butt off to finish up our house.  It is getting there!  I can’t wait to move in.

I will try to check in more often!  Love to all.
