It's been a while since I posted an update about the house. Things are going well but we still have a number of boxes that need to be unpacked and a number of things to do around the house. Ingrid and I have decided that we want to replace nearly all the windows as the house was a little drafty when the outside temp dropped over the last few weeks. I checked out the windows and most are warped and show some signs of water damage. Also, we realized the new French Door the previous owner put in the living room just before we moved in, really isn't a cold climate door and doesn't seal well either. Even though it's a new door, we've decided that too need to be replaced with a door of higher quality. Found a real nice unit made by Anderson but it's a bit on the pricey side. In any event, we'll most likely make that investment before fall. Still have some painting and a long list of other things to fix/change. I put new up some new outdoor lights, replacing all the broken fixtures. Found a great deal on some Hampton Bay lamps at Home Depot, box of 2 for $29, and they match the post lamp Make gave me to replace the missing one. I also converted the halogen flood light above the garage to turn on via a motion sensor.
I'll post some more photos as soon as I can.
