Adventures in Homeownership, pt 2 (Sandy edition)

I’ve had some loose siding on my house since sometime last summer.  A few weeks back, we got a bit of a wind storm and the rattling siding kept me up most of the night.  It’s right behind my bed. I was delaying buying a ladder to get up and look at it and see if I could fix it.

With Hurricane Sandy predicted to cause high winds in Michigan, I grew pretty nervous Monday afternoon, so I called Rob to have him take a look at it to see if I needed to leave work to do something about the problem.

He sent me this picture:

That for sure held it until I got home.


A run- House Hunting

I’ve become obsessed with the idea of purchasing a home. It borders on unhealthy, I think. Last Sunday, I spotted a house nearby that was a steal. By Tuesday, it was no longer on the real estate website I was looking at. I don’t know if it sold, or if it was taken off the market. I decided to run by tonight and see if there was a for sale sign out front. There wasn’t, but I did stop at a few other houses to grab flyers.
