Having tansferred to our new home, the long list of things to be done had to be made. These included basic carpentry work on some old structures within the house and some renovation of furnishings and fixtures. It was nothing new to both my husband and myself since we were both handy when it came to doing things on our own for those basic jobs. In this way, we are able to save on getting some professional help and with the present increase in labor costs, it is one sure and effective way of cutting down on the budget when we still had a long way to go on the house.
I should admit that it is not an easy task to undertake, however, it is the only way that we could achieve what we actually wanted in the most affordable manner. I made sure that priorities were given to those that needed urgent attention, and most of these involved the plumbing and electrical work. The first thing we did was to get hold of suppliers that could provide things we needed in a hurry. It was never as easy we we expected since it only took us hardly a week’s time to do this. Everything was provided as per what we had planned and not a single thing was missed out based on what we wanted. I was particularly amazed at how wonderful the bathroom faucets turned out to be after my husband has installed them. I am almost positive that things will end up the way we expect them to be.
