Hi There....I'm new here!


Hi everyone...

This is my first post. I have a Raised Ranch (built in 1973) that I'm going to be working on till the end of time. We've been there since Oct 2009 and there's just so much to do. We have a baby on the way...she's due in just over a month. I'm working on the nursery now and things have been pretty frustrating.

The previous owners had no idea how to remove wallpaper or prep walls for paint properly.

The few remodels done over the years were done by complete morons.

If the market was better I'd just move. This is our first house and I pretty much hate it.

Hi There....I'm new here!


Thanks guys!

To top it off we paid $243900 for it in Oct 2009 and it's probably worth $209000 now and would probably sit on the market for a year.
