First time home owner


Hey all,

I just bought an older home and will be looking to make some updates over the coming months. I'm hoping to lean on the expertise here a bit from time to time!

Cheers!

Re: First time home owner


Welcome aboard.

I will give you the same advice my dad gave me when I bought my house. “No matter how long you own a house you will never be done working on it.”

It can be a labor of love however.

Re: First time home owner


Old homes can be a challenge. As a note, be sure to get off to a good start by checking with your local authority as to what work needs permits and related inspections. I know, a lot of people don't like to gear that but our modern computer system can track our every move and making improvements without proper permits can be a real mess and cost a ton of money, like take it all out AND pay the fines.

Do it right and document the work for future owners.

And welcome
Bud
