Things Every Homeowner Should Have

Things Every Homeowner Should Have

what every homeowner should have
While writing No Home is Perfect How to Decide,  I mentioned that every home owner should have a hammer.  It started me thinking about what it was that I didn't have when I left apartment living.   Here are some thoughts.

You probably should have a screwdriver, a drill, and a step ladder too.     How else will you hang those curtains!

What else?   How many converted apartment dwellers have purchased a home with no idea that they need a trash barrel... or in today's world, recycle bins.

In our neck of the woods, you will need a mailbox.    Yep, that mail will likely be delivered to the street not to your front door.

You'll need a garden hose, and unless you have a landscaping service or a goat,  a lawn mower will be a must have.    A rake too.

If you live anywhere near Boston, you will always need a shovel even if you have a "plow guy".

You might need to have an oil company.   Understand what that entails and how that works.    The name of a plumber, electrician, HVAC guy and carpenter will be as necessary as having a dentist and a doc.    Hopefully not needed, but good to have ready in case you need one!

You should have a fire extinguisher.   Smoke and CO detectors are supposed to come with the house.   Make sure they are there!     While I am thinking of that, it's a good idea for have a fire proof lock box for those important papers, and my Dad would be disappointed if I didn't mention an escape plan.  

Flashlights!    Nothing worse than fumbling in the dark when the lights go out!   

...and, last but not least and probably most important,
 you must have a sense of humor, because while there is nothing like owning your own home, there is always something to do!

  2. Hi Anonymous. Thank you! I really have no idea how to fix that. I wish I could help.

  3. But it's always wise to check in with a doctor before you start using a supplement regularly. The fitness vacation - Whenever vacation is referred to, most of would think enjoying tropical foods, sitting beside the pool, drinking, and partying all night. This can be achieved by adding more weight, increasing the number of repetitions, or by adding on additional sets.

  10. In the awesome scheme of things you

    secure an A with regard to hard work. Exactly

    where you lost everybody was

    first in the particulars. As people say, details make or break the argument.

    . And it could not be

    more accurate here. Having said that, allow me tell you precisely what

    did work. The text

    is actually pretty

    convincing which is possibly the reason why

    I am making the effort to opine. I do not make it
    a regular habit of

    doing that. Second, although I can

    certainly notice the jumps in reason you come up with, I am not really sure of exactly how you appear

    connect your points which produce

    your final result. For right now I will

    yield to your position however hope in the foreseeable future you link your dots better.
