Day 53: Thanks for the advice

January 12, 2012

Thanks to this blog, I’ve gotten a lot of helpful tips throughout this house hunt. Friends and acquaintances share their own homeowner experiences and cautionary words of wisdom. It appears my house hunt of 80 plus isn’t too unusual. Turns out a few Facebook friends are in the home-improvement or real-estate industry. I’ve learned a lot of things I’d otherwise be clueless about.

For instance, icicles are a sign of inadequate attic insulation. Heat rises, and without proper insulation, it escapes through the roof, melting the snow and forming icicles. Icicles may be pretty, but increased heating costs aren’t.

Thanks to everyone who’s taught me a thing or two about house hunting. Any gardeners out there? I want to plant a vegetable garden!

    Kara- I would love to chat gardens! I started a rather large, possibly enormous, veggie/fruit garden last summer. I started a blog about it too…but it fizzled rather quickly. I don’t have the blogging dedication that you do!

      Yes, I’d love to! I haven’t the faintest idea of where to start. What’s the link to your blog? I love that we keep discovering we share many interests!
